The JimmyWin Experience
JimmyWin.com is the web site of Jimmy Nguyen – award winning lawyer, LGBT rights advocate, diversity leader and new media expert. As an ultimate outsider in America (an immigrant, racial minority and openly gay man), Jimmy eventually learned that success comes from voicing his uniqueness.
A gifted public speaker with shining energy, Jimmy was a national speech champion in college; he won events so often that he earned the nickname “JIMMY WIN” (because his last name is pronounced like the word “WIN.”) Since then, Jimmy has a life history of helping others speak up in their lives, in their communities and in the world. His hope is that everyone learns to SHINE. SPEAK. WIN.
In THE WIN COLUMN and in his upcoming online video series SPEAK UP WITH JIMMY, Jimmy comments on law & politics, issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, racial minorities & diversity, new media, and life. He thinks that Americans should speak up more on legal and political issues that affect us.
Jimmy believes LGBT persons deserve fully equal rights, same-sex marriage should be permitted across the U.S., the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy should be repealed, and the gay community should embrace more of its own diversity. He thinks that America still needs to significantly improve inclusion of racial minorities, to celebrate diverse backgrounds, to better embrace lawful immigrants and to find more constructive solutions to the country’s illegal immigration problems.
Jimmy is an enthusiastic fan and student of new media – with Internet businesses, digital entertainment, user-generated content, social media, mobile devices and mobile apps, and other new media technologies revolutionizing the way the world communicates. In life, he now understands you win in life by embracing everything authentic about you, by shining who you truly are, and by learning to speak up.
Jimmy also wants to celebrate when good things happen in the world. Watch his IT’S A WIN posts and social media entries for the latest people, events and news that WIN.
