    Chauvin was born in Laos in 1974 during a time of war. In 1977, her family fled to safety in Thailand, where they lived in a refugee camp. Chauvin still remembers the challenges of being a refugee. Their only possessions were the ones they could carry on their backs. She watched people die from illness. To this day, she avoids eating oatmeal because it takes her back to her days at the camp. After three years there, Chauvin and her family moved to Eau Claire, Wis. It was a cold October and Chauvin had to wear a boy’s jacket because that’s all that was available. Even in America, Chauvin said, she felt like she was still in a refugee camp. Ten years old, she was placed in a kindergarten class, where she knew less about reading and writing English than her younger classmates. “They say ‘land of the free,’ but I still didn’t feel like we were free,” Chauvin said. “We didn’t know English. My parents didn’t want us leaving the house because they didn’t trust the world. You land into this...

    Chauvin’s parents found her a husband when she was 17 years old and they married before she turned 18. She hardly knew him. “As a Hmong woman, if you’re not married by 18 … then your parents think that nobody will marry you,” Chauvin said. The couple had two children, and Chauvin said she fought to make the marriage work. But after 10 years in an abusive relationship, she says, she decided to divorce and move to Minnesota. Her former husband died shortly after. Chauvin earned her associate’s degree in radiology and took an internship in the emergency room of Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. The internship turned into a full-time position, and she stayed for 13 years. It was at the hospital that she met her current husband, Derek Chauvin. The Minneapolis police officer spotted his future wife when he brought someone in for a health check before an arrest. After taking the suspect to jail, Derek Chauvin returned and asked her out. “Under all that uniform, he’s just a sof...

    Five years ago, Chauvin said, she wouldn’t have considered signing up for a pageant. So when longtime friend Sophia Xiong-Yang approached Chauvin with the idea in January, she was surprised to hear Chauvin agree. “She is such a go-getter,” Xiong-Yang said. “I feel that it takes someone who is very caring, compassionate and has a lot of empathy for others to be able to do the things she does. It would be amazing if she makes Minnesota history by being the first Hmong woman to win the title Mrs. Minnesota.” The pageant is split into four parts: a private interview with the judges, a public interview, a swimsuit round and an evening-gown round. Chauvin has worked with a coach to prepare for the interviews but is most nervous about walking in 5½-inch heels. “If I fall flat on my face, at least somebody will remember,” Chauvin said. Her evening gown is navy blue with a smattering of sparkles — an homage to police officers. “When I saw the dress, it was almost like it was in a movie where...

    Contestants in Mrs. Minnesota America are not required to have an official platform, but they are expected to be invested in their communities. That’s easy for Chauvin, who said, “My hobby is just helping people.” And she donates to and volunteers with Hmong Empowering Women, a nonprofit dedicated to helping Hmong women who have recently arrived in the United States find jobs, child care and a community. “I dedicate myself to animals and children and women,” Chauvin said. “That’s my passion. It doesn’t feel like work to me.”
