Meet Ha Nguyen!

Ms. Ha Nguyen, On-site Program Coordinator

Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 1.08.07 PMI am so excited and feel so lucky to join in your study tour in Ho Chi Minh city this summer. Regarding my background, I am a graduate student majoring in English Language Education from Vietnam National University, Hanoi. Since the first day at college, I have been nurturing a dream of becoming an expert in the field of education and at the same time have wished to pursue higher education abroad to learn and experience myself how developed countries have succeeded in developing their education systems. Teaching is probably not my biggest interest, but being an education manager does sound great to me. I believe, the upcoming experience with you guys will help me a lot in gaining more insight into how different Vietnamese and American learning styles are, which definitely will contribute to the accomplishment of my biggest goal and dream. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you all. Love from Hanoi.
