I am born and raised in France with Vietnamese origins.

I am a “Viet Kieu” or “Phap Kieu” as we say in Vietnamese.

I was born in 1992, in France. I grew up in a small countryside town with a lot of nature. My friends often say that where I come from, there are more living cows than inhabitants! Which is probably true. For those who will dare to google where I am from, the region is called “Auvergne”.

I talked about my upbringing in France, as a half-vietnamese, as child from divorced parents, etc. in a few interviews. One was in Move To Asia youtube channel, where we approache the angle of being a “viet kieu” returning to Vietnam. And the other interview was in a podcast I co-hosted for 1 year called “Creators in Saigon” (now it’s called “Creators in Vietnam”).

Here is the interview from Move To Asia you can watch here:

Being a mixed kid is something I learned to appreciate. It’s easy to say you are never one or the other culture. But it’s also easy to say that you are both cultures.

In 2012, upon coming back to Vietnam, my first goal was to connect with my Vietnamese side. I started to learn Vietnamese and actually started a career as an Entrepreneur in Saigon.
