My background, career, and maybe my hopes and dreams
Born and raised in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam with Chinese descent. I will tell people I speak 4 languages if they ask (Vietnamese, English, Cantonese, Mandarin), but between you and me, it’s more like 2.5 on a good day.
I spent 2 years at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio before realizing I didn’t fit the corporate world that environment was pointing me to. Then, I transferred to Suffolk University (Boston, MA) to finish what I’d started, alongside a 80% international student population at a downtown campus, most of which had either owned a business or had wanted to start one.
It was quite exciting except for when it’s only what everyone would talk about.
My degree: Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with a Marketing concentration.
Growing up, I have always been really into business because both my parents were in it. Most of my career thus far has been a combination of creating my own startups, working for other startups, competing in startup competitions (and winning some), and freelance WordPress work (web design, SEO, e-commerce).
What I’m currently working on: SEO, content marketing, paid search, social media, product marketing.
