“I was born in Quang Nam Province. Finishing High school, I was planning to study Architecture. In my hometown, people do not have any idea about Graphic Design that I am passionate about. I failed the exam to entrance the Architecture University so I had to study Law instead. After finishing 4 years of study, I finally realized once again that my passion has always been Design.”
“I choose to study Design because I think it was interesting. My family was able to afford to send me to study abroad in Australia. However, the more I studied the more I felt like I was always behind my friends. I realized that this was somehow not my passion. I finished first year then stopped and moved to Economics instead”
“My mother does not want me to study Design because she could not see the future with it. She said this career is not suitable for women”
