In a nutshell, what do you do?

I will be studying and researching in the field of International Development Economics.

Why do you love what you do?

I think that Development Economics can have a positive impact on developing countries like my own, Vietnam.

What did you like most about Albion?

The professors are extremely nice and supportive, and they give their students a lot of individual attention. In my case, it was Dr. Saltzman and Dr. Li.

How did Albion help you to get where you want to be?

Albion gave me the opportunity to study at the London School of Economics and to pursue my research interests through FURSCA and a senior thesis.

For me, Albion...

...is the first place I have been to outside of Vietnam. It is a sweet little town that opened me to the world and where I met great people, some of whom have had a life-long impact on me.
