About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to gain a neutral view of this colorful life.

ABOUT ME

I am a graduate of Ho Chi Minh City University of Law, in the Faculty of International Law with.
I am also the LLM grad of SMU, Dallas.

PHILOSOPHY

WE ALL HAVE MERELY ONE LIFE TO LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE SO THERE IS NO PLACE TO WAIT OR TO REGRET :-)

Since I was in high school, I have trusted that laws is an integral part of human society and people should study abroad to gain new insights and outlook. This circumstance stimulated me to attend faculty of International Law at Ho Chi Minh City University of Law which is one of the best law schools in Vietnam playing an important role as a legal research and an advisory body for the Vietnamese government in legal and public administrative reform.
