Monique Le fled Vietnam when she was 16 years old. After eight months in a refugee camp, she finally landed in the United States.

Thirty years later, Monique lives in Seattle and makes her living as a matchmaker. We'll explore her amazing journey as one of the now legendary "boat people" of Vietnam, and why seeing the rain on her bedroom window in her new country was, for her, absolutely romantic.

Listen to Monique's radio talk show, Afternoons with Monique, or—if you're in need of a matchmaker—find out more on her website, Seattle Love Broker.

You can also find her on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
