Hi, my name is Trang. I was born in Hanoi, Vietnam, and had a chance to study in Singapore when I was 15 years old. I had been a resident of Singapore for half my life ever since until I quit my full-time job last year and moved back to my country in the meanwhile. It’s been more than a year since I quit my job, and there were a few times when I attempted to get back “on track” since it had seemed long enough a personal break. I looked into a few Masters degrees in three different fields that I was interested in. One of them is data analytics/science, which I already proceeded to sending an application, in my mind thinking it’d be good to further strengthen my work background in data and have it as my craft. It was 5 months ago, at which time, I felt that I just couldn’t go through with it and proceeded down that path while it felt like a sensible thing to do, so I pulled the application. Afterward, I tried applying for jobs, and proceeded with interviews, but didn’t yet receive an acceptance. Then 1 month ago, I felt that I was carrying a mental burden of job searches at the back of my mind, and not without inner battles, decided that I would give myself the freedom to choose what I feel like doing with my day, rather than having my mind and my day held down by the anxiety and obligation of a job search. I had all the free time, but I wasn’t free in my mind. So now, I let myself be, until I feel ready for a job search, or maybe something else. In my mind now is a journey of processing the question “What for?”, and for now I would like to live my life and have more experiences to inform myself and my life. I do want to feel more self-sufficient, and not feel passive as a consumer of a system in which I can't pin down if anything or anyone is compromised in the value chain. I hope to make choices for my peace of mind and heart moving forward, and leaving out all else as noise.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hm. I guess I would always be glad to have joined an acapella group. There were many times during practice when I felt really self-conscious because my singing was still developing and not strong among my groupmates. But now, because of the experience, I can do some harmony instinctively and it’s so fun. I am so glad because, before this chance, harmony singing had seemed incomprehensible to me and an impossible execution.
