Personal Background of Quincy Hoang
I was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1971 as one of five children of an Army Captain, Mr. The Ke Hoang, and a schoolteacher, Mrs. Hoa Thi Nguyen. My family immigrated to the United States in 1975 due to the end of the Vietnam War. I was three years old at the time.
Initially, we settled in Bradenton, Florida for approximately five years where I fondly remember an idyllic childhood spent exploring the beach areas of Bradenton (near Tampa). From there, my family and I reached the San Francisco Bay Area where I spent the majority of my life growing up. In 1983, my parents gave birth to my younger brother, thus giving me two sisters and two brothers, one older and one younger of each. I was the middle child.
I’ve lived in San Jose, Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco graduating from the University of California at Berkeley in 1993 with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and graduating from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 2001 with a Juris Doctorate degree.
