Amazin LêThi was born in Saigon, Vietnam and left in an orphanage by her mother. Being uniquely different, she was routinely bullied and teased throughout her childhood and as a teenager. She found respite through sports and the arts.

As a young adult, Amazin was homeless for a period of time, moving in and out of different shelters. While at her lowest point and contemplating suicide, Amazin revisited her passion and love for sports and the arts, which she used and credits to this day as the driving force for helping her gain confidence and achieving her many goals and accomplishments.

In 2008, Amazin was recognized by the Vietnamese American National Gala Awards for her remarkable contribution in the entertainment and fitness industry. In 2012, the Harvey Milk Foundation referred Amazin LeThi as a guest HIV/AIDS speaker at the NPS Italia Onlus HIV/AIDS national summit in Milan.
