This is a TEDxYouth event staged at the International School of Ho Chi Minh City American Academy, Vietnam. Our speakers are Vietnamese middle school and high school students who study our international education. Their speeches encompass thoughts of their generation, ethnicity and family. Additionally, their ideas are rich in authenticity because of the personal, academic and social crossroads they are at in their lives. "Through a different lens" will take you on a journey from the depths of 6th graders' imagination to the visions of seniors'. We look forward to providing you with an incredible day of art, philosophy, education, and beyond.

Dang Thi Thuy Anh (Helen)

Asian Parenting
Originally born in Hanoi and raised in a strict Asian family, I grew up with a lot of traditions and anxiety issues. However, they made me who I am today - a strong willed goody two shoes with a twist. A love for art, astronomical theories and learning new aspects of social perception provide me with a balance of self expression and absorption. I am now a senior who is striving to be a designer one day.
