Quyen is very quiet and stoic. She is from the mountains and her primary language is a dialect so she speaks little Vietnamese. Her arm was burnt in a fire when she was 6 months old. She doesn't know how it happened. Although she didn't go to school, she's gone on to live a productive life. Her handsome husband is attending to her after the surgery. He grows trees for wood and they have a 5 year old. Although the surgery is hard on her, she feels very happy.
