Country of Origin: Czech Republic

Vendula used to teach math in Denmark, and now in the USA she still teaches math. Vendula was born in Prague, Czech Republic, although she emigrated from Denmark in 1970. The reason she came to America was that her husband had gotten a job at Cal Tech.

She was the first in her family to come to America. Vendula took a trip from Copenhagen to Los Angeles. She brought nothing but household possessions. When she landed, L.A. looked just like any other big city she knew.

School in Prague, Czech Republic, was not as pressuring as school was here for her. In her native country she went to theaters, operas, and balls for fun.
