Modératrice: Phượng Bùi Trân, professeur invité, Collège de France
I want to tell about the journey of 21years of writing books and 16years of living independently in a big city of Vietnam. With 21years of writing, I have published 5books. In addition, I am also an independent social activist with the outstanding project of bringing my fourth work called: "Believe in Kindness" to give to inmates. The project started at the end of 2018 and has now reached 19prisons across Vietnam. 16years of independent living in HCM City, when I was a woman who could not walk on her own, pronunciation was very difficult. However, with my steadfastness and unceasing efforts, so far, people have called me by the nickname "Six-legged Angel". I travel around Vietnam alone to spread life motivation to many different audiences. Above are the main topics I want to present in the upcoming workshop with Mrs. Bui Tran Phuong.
