My first thought when I learned I was awarded this scholarship

Besides the happiness and gratitude, I felt over receiving the scholarship, I was also reminded of the responsibility it entails. I need to maintain my scholarship, plan for my future, and gain as much knowledge about the real world as I can. The Hinrich Foundation offers many opportunities, and I want to show that I deserve the scholarship.

Why I’m interested in trade

We are living in a globalized world. Cooperation between countries can lead to the flourishing of international trade, which in turn can help develop a country’s economy.

What this scholarship opportunity means to me

The scholarship from the Hinrich Foundation and TBS Group is a wonderful opportunity for me to participate in global trade, establish friendships with other scholars and industry partners, and gain knowledge and professional experience.

The international experiences I’m most looking forward to

I look forward to working in a dynamic and creative environment where people can share their talent and ideas.

I also look forward to organizing trips to other countries for workers to gain experience.

My favorite hobbies and other interests

I am passionate about reading books and understanding more about logistics and supply chain management; watching television; and practicing my English language skills.

My proudest achievement so far in life

My proudest achievement in life so far is receiving the Hinrich Foundation-TBS scholarship. I believe it will help me soar to greater heights.

The largest obstacle I’ve overcome so far in life

The largest obstacle I have overcome so far in life is my lack of confidence when speaking to a crowd. I aimed to improve on this while I was at university. By overcoming my fear, I felt motivated to overcome other difficulties in life.

My future goals and aspirations

My future goals and aspirations include graduating from university with excellent grades, contributing to the TBS Group, expanding my personal and professional network, being financially stable, and improving my skills and talent.

How I plan to give back and help others

Someday, when I achieve financial stability, I want to open a school for students who are passionate about transportation, logistics and supply chain management. I also would like to go back to my hometown to develop the supply chain for distributing vegetables and flowers to cities around Vietnam and across the world.

Story about Nguyen Thuy Trang

I was born and grew up in a romantic tourist city aptly called “The city of love”- Da Lat. My friends like that I have a great sense of humor. I am creative, dynamic and confident. In high school, I majored in chemistry and won a bronze medal for it.

When I heard I was selected to become a scholar of the Hinrich Foundation and TBS Group, I was so happy because it proved that dreams do come true. I know I will gain in-depth experience and specialized knowledge in this field.
