My story

I was born and raised in Vietnam. When I was 15, I came to America on my own as a transfer student. After graduating in Florida, I attended Rhodes College in Tennessee as a Computer Science student. The COVID-19 pandemic forced me to move to Seattle in 2020 when I started my in-depth front-end programming journey.

A little bit about me

In my free time, I like to watch Youtube and Netflix, and playing games. My favorite youtubers are Danny Gonzales and Drew Gooden (Go Greg and Little Stinkers!). Some games I usually play are Wild Rift, Clash of Clans, and League of Legends.
