This is my passion, my life, and my future :
I was in a poor family, because my mom lost money from cancer treatment and surgery up to 3 times. But she is still alive. She has always led me to do good things trying to repay fate with the rest of her life.
I was inspired by my mom’s story. So I started and founded Uncommon. I continuously develop this project. After having the opportunity to talk to more people in society, I realized that the scale of implementation of Uncommon at that time would not be enough to solve social problems effectively and sustainably.
I decided to study to create the website myself, tried to learn to improve my project, traveled to explore problems nationwide by train, and tried to access government agencies to help improve social policies.
Then I used the knowledge and skills I had; developing websites, skills, and ideas to build on it and expected my project to be expanded internationally in 2020.
For all the time that I walk in this path. I am passionate about learning about the future changes, thinking about the world in the future, and learning how to help people live and world better in the future. And I’m now the president of Uncommon (from elections), who always inspires the members to move the society forward together and develop the systems for future growth.
