About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fly to the Moon

ABOUT ME

Vietnamese born in Belgium, my mother tongue is French. I'm the calm and laid back type of person. Adept of personnal development, I'm ambitious and I need to be busy... can't stand to be non-productive and can't stay in one place. Luckily, my job keeps sending me all around the globe for new challenges. So, I'm constantly meeting people, experiencing their culture and learning new things.

I do also appreciate spending time on my own, doing my own things. Yep I have a things-to-do list :).

Else, I may seem shy when meeting new people; it's not really the case, just that I'm more a listener than a talker.

See you somewhere in the world !

PHILOSOPHY

Life is about creating yourself

I love Korean cinema (I recommend you "Old Boy", "A Bittersweet Life" and "The Man From Nowhere"). Korean cinema really deserves to be known.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've taught French at Poznan University in Poland, passed the fire-fighting training, volunteered in a local NGO in India, took part in the construction of the biggest port of Vietnam, scuba-dived the Great Barrier Reef, sailed above the arctic circle :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I will share (almost) everything with you.
I want to learn to drive a motorbike, to pilot a plane, to speak Korean, to dance Salsa, to do a martial art, to surf, to cook like a Masterchef, to play the piano...
