Bio: 
I was born in Vietnam, immigrated to the United States twenty years ago with my family. I graduated High School in Fremont, California then earned my undergrad and MBA degree in Hawaii. I currently live in San Diego, working as a financial advisor. My job is to help people plan for retirement and wealth management, therefore I get to meet and socialize with different people in different industries. I enjoy meeting people from all different backgrounds, learn their stories and life experiences. I enjoy traveling. I traveled to Europe in my early twenties then South Korea, Japan, Thailand, China, Malaysia in my early thirties. I was in Brazil and Argentina last year. My last time in Vietnam was December 2014. I realized what I always wanted to do is to give back, especially to my own people, to the place where I came from. I was born in a small town, lived for fifteen years in MyTho. I know what hardship is. I've experienced poverty and struggles. I used to tag along with my grandmother when she walked everywhere to sell lottery tickets. I used to inherit used books from the neighbor's daughter for school because my mom did not have enough money to buy new books. I am grateful I had a chance to live in the United States, to experience a better life. Before meeting my stepfather who was gracious enough to move our whole family to the U.S, my mom was a single mom with two children. We had enough to eat and a roof over our head but opportunity for higher education and other possibilities was beyond reach. If I could do something to greatly impact one's life like how my life was impacted, I think it would be my greatest accomplishment.

I volunteered to teach Vietnamese to Vietnamese American children for one year in Hawaii. My responsibility was to create lesson plans and facilitate the classroom for kids aged 5 to 16.
