“Never give up.” – Tyler Hoang
Tyler Hoang is in sixth grade at St. Francis De Sales Catholic School, which he began attending in Pre-K 4. Tyler lives in Houston with his beloved parents, Tuan Hoang and Lilly Phuc Vuong, and his younger brother, Jacob Hoang.
While in kindergarten, Tyler’s teacher, Mrs. Jones, began helping him learn to read. Tyler developed a love of reading during that time that continues to this day. Since then, he has read a lot of books and can be found pouring over a book at his mother’s salon, at school, and at home before going to sleep. One of Tyler’s favorite series is the Harry Potter series, by J. K. Rowling. He has read every single book in the series, including the last one, which is pretty thick.
In fourth and fifth grades, Tyler qualified for the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke Tip) in language arts. The nonprofit organization supports academically talented students in grades four through twelve. It is Tyler’s ambition to go to Strake Jesuit College Preparatory for high school and to Rice University for college.
