What is your favorite place you’ve visited?
Halong, Vietnam. That’s where I’m from. I left my hometown 9 years ago and don’t get to go home very often. Halong is growing so fast in terms of infrastructure, economy and standards of lives. It has become a core urban development of Vietnam, attracting investment and tourism from all over the world. Halong is home.
What project are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of designing a replacement building for Munroe Meyer Institute (MMI), which provides interdisciplinary, family-centered services for persons with disabilities and complex health care needs across their lifespan. This was a student project when I was in school. I got to work on it again as a professional after I graduated. It was very fulfilling to be able to follow a project from the very start to finish. I have learned and grown so much from working on this project.
What is the most impactful thing you’ve learned over the course of your career?
Be kind, work hard and never stop learning.
