Hello there! My name is Lan and I am from Vietnam. I’m currently doing my bachelor degree in Social sciences at HKU, majoring in Political Science and Sociology. I enjoy working with people of different cultural backgrounds and learning from their diverse perspectives. I am interested in social entrepreneurship and with the knowledge and experience acquired during my studies in HKU as well as my social activist network The Global Changemakers from British Council, I hope to start up my own social enterprise in developing countries to assist girls’ education.

With the belief that “experiencing is believing”, I decided to apply for a summer internship in Africa to understand more about the much misjudged continent. One of the first things that struck my mind as my life went on with the country and I learned more about the history of the continent from the people. I could really see development taking place. Africa in general and Ghana in particular are definitely up-and-coming.
