For me, two fields are the things that I am passionate about. It is really hard for me to choose one of those The model helps me to have flexible, beautiful steps and figure. As for dancing, I really like to dance on k-pop music because when I hear some good songs believe in myself and I even want to become a kpop idol, too.

In 2019, I participated in an official contest in Vietnam that is the “AMBASSADOR OF VIETNAM AO DAI” contest. This is a competition for all ages and I signed up for my age board. This is the first contest that I participated in, so I was really nervous at that time. But I tried and overcame my fear and then I got the “IMPRESSIVE” award in that contest.
