Ho Thi Giang Chau
Ho Thi Giang Chau was born in Hue, Vietnam in 1954, the great niece of the Empress Dowager, and the second child of eleven siblings. As the daughter of a colonel in the South Vietnamese Army, as well as a relative of abdicated Emperor Bao Dai, Chau and her family were on the wrong side of the political conflict during the Vietnam War. Following the fall of Saigon in 1975, Chau’s university education was ended by the Communists and she was forced into re-education classes along with her siblings. Life became unbearable in Saigon and shortly into 1979 her
mother devised an escape plan whereby Chau and two siblings would leave for a new land under cover of darkness. After many months as a refugee, undergoing trials beyond belief, Chau arrived in Canada to begin life anew, as a wife, mother of three, and successful entrepreneur. Chau along with her husband, David Ghent, founded and ran a successful designer knitwear business, which employed 40 Vietnamese women. Now they are business partners in a floral business that serves the Greater Toronto Area.
