My name is Hang, 34 years old. I was born and grow up in Quang Tri province, the central part of Vietnam. I have one younger sister who is getting married and living in Hue city. She is an English teacher and she has a 5 years old son.
4 of my younger brothers are staying with me. They are Michael, 27 years old, who is running our family fishsauce factory. Peter, 23 years old who is helping me with teaching English. Ben, 20 years old helping me with gardening and the youngest one - Jerry, is studying grade 11. He is a funny and clever guy.
I did my bachelor's in Agriculture and graduated in 2008 and then I worked for our university for 2 years. Then I got a full scholarship named Australian Leadership Awards and did my Master of Sustainability for 2 years in Adelaide, Australia. Then I went home and started running my fishsauce business from 2013 and now my younger brother, Michael taking care of it.
Now we live here, it's on the halfway from Ho Chi Minh to Da Lat. The weather is so nice, full of sunshine and temp is always around 27. We plant avocado, coffee, and vegetable. They're all organic, we produce compost by our own, use in the village and share with other farms around the area.
We have 12-15 students from 18-25 years old, coming to our village to learn English intensively in 3 months, 6 months and 1 year. I hope you would help them speaking English confidently.
I love Osho, my philosophy, we practice yoga and meditation every day and live a healthy and happy life.
We are looking forward to seeing you.
