Global Challenge: Making solar energy economical

Living in Beijing has ignited my interest in developing sustainable energy. It will be more effective in the long run if we focus on prevention rather than treatment when trying to combat global warming.”


I was born in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, however, I have lived abroad in Sudan, Indonesia, China, and Malaysia before moving to New York City. I am an undergraduate student studying Mechanical Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Prior to studying in Tandon, I have worked as an intern for Intelligence Earnings Sdn Bhd as well as the Advancement Team for the International School of Kuala Lumpur, applying my video editing skills to a work environment. In addition, I am currently working as a teaching assistant for the General Engineering department in Tandon. I am also a member of the VIP Project Robomaster, a NYU robotics team that competes in the annual DJI Robomaster tournament held in Shenzhen, China. I am on the mechanical engineering team, utilizing my skills in CAD software to create a competitive robot.
