Bao Nhi Bui

Bao Nhi is a Junior at Concordia International School Hanoi. During her free time, she likes to go to the gym or watch Korean series on Netflix. Unfortunately, due to her tight schedule and heavy workload as a Junior, she had no choice but to give up on her mentally comforting hobby, watching Netflix. However, closing one gate is opening another. She seized this opportunity to explore her personal interests and found herself fascinated by economic concepts. Through her TEDx speech, she wants to share with the audience her passion and the ardent national nature in her, contributing to the social and economic development of her home country.

Duc Vinh Nguyen

Vinh is a junior at St. Paul American School Hanoi, and he is interested in philosophy, economics, and education in the status quo. He is curious about understanding systems at its core, and how variables interact to become the world as it is now. However, he finds that this mode of learning isn’t promoted in Vietnam’s formulaic educational system, so he is on a mission to advocate for such. He finds that TedTalk is a perfect mission for this. In his free time, Vinh likes to play tennis and talk with his friends. He also works out and plays Minecraft with his friends when he gets the chance. He also loves solving problems online and hanging out with his family.

Ha Linh has been in various public speaking activities like Model UN and Debate since Grade 7. Ha Linh is especially fond of expressing her opinions and sharing her ideas with other people.
