Fluent in Vietnamese and English
Hien came to New Zealand in 2010 and decided to stay on and call New Zealand home as she fell in love with the country's natural beauty and friendly people. She likes working with IDP New Zealand as she finds it very satisfying to help students find the right university. Hien believes that the secret to happiness is being able to love whatever you do in life.
She is fluent in both Vietnamese and English and feels that it gives her an insight into seeing the world from different perspectives. When she’s isn’t busy working, she enjoys listening to meditation music, reading books and planning her next holiday.
