Today, Hmong people face difficulties in America. Many people don't realize how hard it is for a forty year old man to come to America and start anew. Or for a sixteen year old girl to try and balance Hmong culture at home and Americanization at school. Choosing between their traditional culture and the "American" way is a decision Hmong people face every day. Hmong in the Modern World was created in hope that young Hmong people can learn to balance both worlds and live with both of them combined, not separated forever.
