Born and raised in Hanoi, I strive to protect my Vietnamese identity while being a global citizen. I have lived in the UK, the US, Italy and visited more than 30 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. My favorite activities include examining Italian Renaissance and Dutch Golden Age paintings, dining at Michelin restaurants with people I love, and watching exotic sunsets after hiking. One of my favorite quotes is “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science” (Albert Einstein). So I travel to experience not only the beauty but also the mysteries of the world.
