The most valuable thing from my time at Australian International School (AIS) is the exposure to a very international environment, which perfectly prepared me for college life. At AIS, I made a lot of great friendships and I met some amazing teachers, who would continue to guide me through every walk of life. Under the IB Curriculum, I was taught to become an independent thinker who would not hesitate to challenge the status quo and come up with innovative solutions. My expected IB Grade at the end of Year 12 was below 30. I graduated with a 38! My time at AIS really unfolded my potential. I have just graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Finance (Class of 2017). I lived on campus at Ormond College, where I received a Scholar Award for High Achiever. Now I am off to Madrid to do my Double Masters in Management and Finance at IE Business School. After I graduate, I will take over the family business. My long-term goal is to transform the agriculture industry of Vietnam, leading the industry into sustainable development.
