[Humans of ISC67] Participant Edition: Hoang Pham Trung (Joe)
#1 Please introduce yourself!
My name is Trung, and I am from Vietnam. However, I am currently studying abroad in Korea at Hanyang University. I am majoring in Tourism and plan to pursue a double major in Business Administration. I love to watch documentaries on Discovery and National Geographic. Through these documentaries, I can broaden my horizon about a wide range of different aspects that I am curious about. I am also a fan of The Amazing Race as well.
#2 What is your favorite thing about your country/city? Why?
There are so many things about my home country that I love, but the one that I miss the most when studying abroad is definitely the food. Vietnamese food is so diverse in terms of both flavors and types. The street food can be easily found everywhere, which is so convenient. As I live in Ho Chi Minh City, which is the biggest city in the South of Vietnam, I also miss the vibrance of the city, the moment of riding motorbikes around the streets. Everywhere you go, even if you are not Vietnamese, you can still feel the hospitality from the locals. And there are significant differences in terms of weather, food, cultures, etc across different parts of Vietnam, which makes it diverse and more interesting to explore.
#3 What made you want to join ISC67 and your table? What would you like to achieve through the conference?
By joining ISC, I would love to meet and widen my network with other like-minded young professionals from all over the world. we can cooperate and help each other to become a better version of ourselves as well as come up with a great solution to contribute to making society a better version of itself.
As the world is becoming globalized and immigration for working purposes has become more popular, it also creates numerous challenges. One of the modest examples of them is the Technical intern training program founded by Japan. Joining Table 4, I am eager to dig deeper into the program, its problems and contribute to finding out a solution to help make the program better, which will help the interns have a better life.
