Nhat grew up in a rural town in Quang Nam, a province in the central of Vietnam, with the vision of becoming the architect of her own future. With the support of her family, she went from Quang Nam to Bunker Hill Community College to Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. She is currently pursuing dual degrees – an MBA at MIT and a Master in Public Administration in International Development at Harvard. She believes that having access to education is what has made this amazing trajectory possible.
When Nhat was a teenager, she painfully witnessed children in her community quitting school due to financial struggles. As an adult, she wanted to help children receive education because she believes in the power of education to change people’s lives for the better. She made it a personal mission to make as many children’s dreams a reality as she can, and Fund for Dreams is her means of doing so.
