Social Activities

Studying is not the only thing I did during my university time. As an energetic and enthusiastic student, I love to spend my free time more in joining activities in society. I was the President of Vietnamese Community at Kaplan and also a member of Polaris Family and Vietnamese Community Alliances in Singapore. By actively participating in social activities, I have learned so many new things and had the opportunities to develop more soft skills needed in life and work. Below is the list of some of the prominent activities I joined in Singapore.

Outstanding Activities

Media Relations Officer at 8th ASEAN Paragames (3rd December 2015 - 9th December 2015)

My role in this event is the Media Relations Officer. I worked under the Media Relations Department and had responsibilities to support reporters, photographers and other media staffs from ASEAN countries like Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, etc. I learned a lot about teamwork and time management through this event.

Futsal Referee at Vietnamese Community Alliances Sports League (24th October 2015)

My job in this sports league is to make sure that every futsal match goes smoothly and follows all the futsal rules. Moreover, preventing cheating and serious faults from happening is also a part of my job. The lessons I learned from being a referee are to stay calm, highly focus and make firm decision quickly.  

Business idea presentation at Bizz Buzz Night (14th August 2015)

I registered to this event in order to present about my business idea. My thinking was to create a fast food restaurant chain of Vietnamese food. The Americans have McDonald's, KFC, so why can't we have our own? Innovation, presentation and negotiation skills are the three things I perceived that day.

Representatives of Vietnamese Community at Kaplan at Vietnam Prime Minister Meeting (8th August 2015)

As the President of Vietnamese Community at Kaplan, I was invited by the Vietnam Embassy in Singapore to join the meeting with our Prime Minister, Nguyen Tan Dung, as he visited Singapore on the occasion of Singapore's Independence Day. It was an honour to meet him face-to-face for the first time.

Organizer of Vietnamese Community at Kaplan Picnic & Kayak (29 September 2014)

I was the administrator of this picnic & kayak event for Vietnamese students at Kaplan. My responsibilities include planning program flow for the event, making sure everything follows strictly to the timeline, booking pizza for dinner and MC on that day.
