Resilience is a powerful trait that can help individuals overcome challenges and obstacles in life. When combined with a desire to make a positive impact on society, resilience can drive a person to become a social change maker. A resilient woman is someone who is able to bounce back from adversity and persevere in the face of obstacles. This can be a valuable trait for anyone, but it is especially important for women, who often face unique challenges and barriers to success. To become a social change maker, a resilient woman must first identify the issues she is passionate about and wants to address. This could include a wide range of topics, such as gender equality, racial justice, environmental sustainability, or any other cause that she feels strongly about. Over time, the resilient woman's efforts may begin to bear fruit. She may see changes in her community, or even on a larger scale. Through her work, she can inspire others to take action and create positive change as well. In conclusion, resilience can be a powerful force for good in the world. By harnessing this trait and using it to drive positive social change, a resilient woman can make a lasting impact on her community and beyond.

Ms. Huyền Tôn Nữ Cát Tường is currently the Managing Director and Co-founder of VietSeeds Foundation. Established in 2011, it has been the first scholarship foundation for students operating in all 3 main regions of Vietnam which are Hanoi, Hue and Ho Chi Minh city. In 2015, after over 10 years working in the business environment with multinational corporations (such as IBC Asia, Massimo Zanetti, Infonam, etc), Cat Tuong had decided to change her direction—from a simple businesswoman into an inspiring leader who wholeheartedly committed her full attention to the development and the expansion of VietSeeds. Under her leadership, VietSeeds had been gradually growing from a charity organization created by a small group of friends into a professional non-profit foundation with a team of full-time staffs operating alongside long-term volunteers, providing more than 400 scholarships every year to students across the country for them to be able to pursue their dreams—in Hanoi, Hue and Ho Chi Minh city. Throughout the journey of more than 10 years since the beginning of VietSeeds, Cát Tường has been working relentlessly to accompany the organization in order to diversify its operation scope. Moreover, with her guidance, VietSeeds had succeeded in getting important partnerships with international institutions such as HSBC, Temasek, Fulbright University, etc. Therefore, the organization’s mission would become more viral, spreading out the "Empowering social change-maker generation" spirit and the positive values to communities in Vietnam.
