Origins

My name is Chi-Hung Ta, and I founded the Thuy Trang Tribute website in 1997.

When Mighty Morphin Power Rangers debuted in 1993, I was slightly older than the target audience. But, I watched because of Thuy Trang's portrayal of Trini Kwan, the Yellow Ranger. I recognized Thuy as being Vietnamese, whose immigrant story matched my own. I wanted to reach out to her, but how to do so?

I built a Geocities webpage for Thuy Trang, making it a destination for her fans. It had a guestbook -- a form where visitors could leave a comment -- and it was there that Thuy's photographer friend, Bruce Heinsius, left an entry. He was an invaluable source of photos, having been the on-set photograph on Power Rangers. I will forever be grateful for Bruce, as he connected me with Thuy directly and enabled me to shine a light upon her.

Tribute Talk

The fan page was a success! I received positive feedback along with photos and experiences from other fans. I then added a section called Tribute Talk and filled it with conversations carried over from emails and guestbook comments.

I made a site redesign and expanded Tribute Talk by adding Yahoo's message board for all of the fans to converse and form a community. It ended up being a wonderful collective tribute to Thuy! =)

New Domain

What started as a single page on my personal website had grown to something much larger. Especially after Thuy's death, the fan site really deserved its own place online. So I registered ThuyTrangTribute.com and gave it a brand new look.

The guestbook and forum fizzled out over time. These days, I mainly use the Twitter account (@thuytribute) to keep in touch with fans and share info that is relevant to Thuy's legacy. There is also a Facebook page, but I'm much less active there.
