Just after the new year, Uyen Duy Le, a high school senior, travelled thousands of miles and many hours from her home in tropical Vietnam to Watford City. She has been living here ever since as an exchange student for her last semester of high school.
Uyen (pronounced oo-een) did not even own a coat when she learned that she would be coming to North Dakota.
