My first thought when I learned I was awarded this scholarship: It was very happy when I knew that I was chosen for the scholarship because I can upgrade my knowledge to a higher level and have a long time career for my future.

Why I’m interested in trade: Trade is one of my favorite business fields because growing up to my business, trading is one of the majority to grow. My interest was consolidated and developed into a passion for sustainable global trade which enables human to enjoy the equilibrium in economic prosperity, environmental quality, and social quality.

What this scholarship opportunity means to me: The scholarship has paved the way for realizing my dream to further my education in engineering at a German standard university, where I can obtain the knowledge from famous professors of Berlin University. In addition, receiving the Hinrich Global Trade Leaders Scholarship helps me take one more step closer to is my career path to sustainable trade-based national wealth.

The international experiences I’m most looking forward to: I want to explore new knowledge about the neighboring countries such as culture, language and life styles.

What I’ll bring to my dorm to remind me of home: I bring a photo of my family and my parents. I also use the photo my son and daughters photo as the laptop background. Every time I use my computer, I reduce my homesickness and strengthen motivation for exerting myself in the study at VGU.

My favorite hobbies and other interests: One of my favorite hobby is watching movie. When I have some stress of my living, I use to watch the Action Movie like ( Holly wood movie, and Bolly wood movie). Football is another my favorite hobby. When I have a friend to play with me, I play with my friends.

My proudest achievement so far in life: Getting the Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship for MSc in Global Production Engineering Management Studies at Vietnamese-German University is my proudest achievement so far.

The largest obstacle I’ve overcome so far in life: Conversation with my classmates is a big obstacle I face in my study because most of them are Vietnamese. Due to different accents, I find it difficult to understand my classmates and make them understand me. Therefore, I am actively improving my English with the IELTS pre-course at VGU and socializing with my Vietnamese friends in both life and study for more effective communication in English.

My future goals and aspirations: I wish to work in the global leadership program.

How I plan to give back and help others: I want to understand the leadership and management strategies of my sponsor company for the best contribution to the company’s long-term development.

Personal statement: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” – King David.
