Passion for dedication

For Tony Duong a Vietnamese CEO in the US, in addition to building a personal career, supporting the Vietnamese student community is a top priority.

Knowing that thousands of international students in the US could not find suitable jobs and had to leave their dreams of starting a business behind, Duong founded the Career Pass Institute (CPI).

The Institute aims to help guide career strategy and skills training, so international students can further improve their competitiveness in the international market.

At CPI, the young man and his friends used methodical and in-depth training knowledge to help students have a foundation of professional career skills. With experience working in the strategic consulting industry at many leading US corporations, he has directly trained Vietnamese and international students.

Giving new ideas on the application of Blockchain technology in educational management in Vietnam, Vu Ngoc Huy, Odesа Polytechnic State University, said that he personally could not turn his ideas into reality without the cooperation of many people.

He believes the application of Blockchain technology in educational management is of great significance to improving the safety, transparency and reliability of data.

He believes that the Blockchain platform is opening up great opportunities for Vietnam in quickly digitizing and synchronously connecting all areas of life.

Huy said: “We are living in an era of connectivity, so I hope that my understanding and area of expertise can find sympathy and connection with many other industries and professions."

"Each intellectual alone will not do anything really great for the country. Only when we join hands and connect can we bring Vietnam to an international level.”

Culture is "soft power"

Living and working in the French city of Nantes, musician Hoang Thu Trang is currently the President and founder of ART SPACE, which promotes art education and cultural exchange activities.

The desire that the children born and raised in France do not forget their cultural roots is the original reason that prompted Trang to establish ART SPACE.

However, what made her persistent in implementing the projects was the encouragement and enthusiastic participation of her French friends.

Her happiness is seeing so many families who have no connection with Vietnam but regularly send their children to participate in activities at ART SPACE. Children learn to sing and dance to Vietnamese music, draw and create on crafts such as bamboo mats and conical hats.

In the US, guitarist Tran Tuan An also aspires to be an artistic bridge to bring foreign audiences closer to Vietnamese culture.

Born in Hanoi, he won the first prize at the Vietnam Music Young Talent competition at the age of 12 and then had the opportunity to study at prestigious universities in the US with valuable scholarships.

In addition to international performances and teaching advanced classes, this young artist also performs to raise money for charity in his hometown to help students in poor schools, or exchange and give gifts to the children in special schools.

Expressing his joy that the State has a lot of policies to attract young Vietnamese talents abroad, an apprentice professor at Gachon University (Korea), Dr. Nguyen Phan Thang said that, practical activities have not been widely disseminated, many young intellectuals had the desire to contribute to the country but did not know the appropriate information to apply.

“Young Vietnamese people can always promote their strengths, no matter what the circumstances," he said.

"However, the main difficulty in attracting talent in our country today is that the approach is still at a superficial level, the coverage of programs for young talent is still limited, and the connections are not strong enough."

PhD student Pham Thi Quynh Chi at the University of Bologna (Italy) also hopes that the Government will have more open policies, creating conditions for young foreign intellectuals to contribute to the development of Vietnam.
