Munn stated in an interview ” my mom was raised in Vietnam. So we have Chinese and Vietnamese culture in my family. I grew up in Japan, mostly because my stepfather was in the air force. So far East Asia is where I feel most connected to… I don’t speak Chinese but I understand Vietnamese. Chinese and Vietnamese were my first languages growing up but by the time I was five years old I stopped. My mom says I was in school in America and I was embarrassed when (American Children) heard me speak it. Me being a first generation American my mom was always scared I was not going to fit in so she didn’t push it on me but the Japanese language I was able to pick up”.
