Unless you have a university degree, the chances of Asians "making it" in Asia are probably 1-2 percent.
For westerners (not the west)making it in the west, I bet it's nearer 20 percent.
My Wife is from Cambodia & been here 22 years.
She saw her Dad shot to death, say her Mom starve to death in a camp. She was on the run in the Jungle for 4 months. In a death capm, she was given one tablespoon of rice for a week at a time.
Now, she is successful, works at a medical device company, bought her own house, is very industrious and is making me Walleye lunch right now.
I cherrish my Wife so much & glad she survived the Holocaust in Cambodia.
