About the speaker

Nam Le was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He started a degree in Graphic Design in Vietnam for 1.5 years before dropping out of his first college. “My passion was not as big as my peers. But I am more of a perceptive person. I love writing, speaking and discussing ideas.” After a series of volunteer experiences (e.g., iSugar, Breast Cancer Network Vietnam), he came back to study Communication Arts at Bangkok University International in January, 2017 and got his BU Creative Scholarship at the same time. Today, he devotes his non-study time to volunteer causes in Bangkok, especially Klong Toey, as well becoming engaged in women and gender equality issues in Asia (inspired by his mommy and granny). About his interests, Nam loves meditation, cooking and jazz music. His role model is Audrey Hepburn, an artist and humanitarian. Besides doing social work, Nam hopes to inspire people to live for the present and treasure the little things in life (especially his dog, Sam).
