Hi, I’m Thuy.
Sometimes I design, Sometimes I photograph
But most of the time I-NTJ.

As a recent graduate from the University of Florida, I was proud of my accomplishments and the amount of self-growth that have transpired throughout my college career. As a then pre-medicine student, I did everything I could to immerse myself in the health field. I was a research assistant in the Cognition & Aging lab, a volunteer in the Radiology and ER Departments, and a certified Emergency Medical Responder, while being a full-time student. During my junior and senior year, I had the privilege of traveling to developing regions of Costa Rica and Vietnam to provide medical care under the guidance of physicians of varying specialties. While I find my experience with medicine to be rewarding, I couldn't help but feel that there was a more purposeful way for me to contribute to society. This revelation led me to reflect back onto my childhood and college experiences hoping to locate the moments where I felt the most fulfilled. What was I doing? The answer was as clear as day— I was creating. I find joy and value in telling compelling stories and solving problems through design. That is who I am.

Somebody once told me the definition of hell:
“On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.”
