Invited Speaker – “Is CityU Worth Your While?”

Before joining CityU in Seattle, I was a student at the ITP – Banking Academy of Vietnam (BAV). Impressed by my passion and achievements, during my visit home in Hanoi, ITP invited me to share my real experiences and advises about studying in the USA in general and studying with CityU in particular, with the new BAV cohorts. 

This is the second talk in the series. The first one was done in 2016, when I first got back to Vietnam from a one year exchange program between BAV and Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin (HWR). My intention of giving these talks is always to inspire, encourage and prepare the new generations of Vietnam for their future academic decisions. I strongly believe in giving more than receiving, I appreciate all the helps that got me to where I am today, and giving these talks is a way for me to give back to my community.
