Heya, I’m Hoang Pham and I’m very excited that you are visiting my blog.
The core of my blog for you is to go on this journey with me, so you as well can make your own choices in life to create your own future, as you like. Since I’m in the verge of building my career, most of the topics will be focused on career building, productivity and self-exploration. Along the way I am sharing the tools I use.
Have you ever wondered whether the road you’re taking on at this moment will lead to your success in life? I’m not only talking about your studies or career, but in all the activities you choose to do.
Well, I sure have and I believe these days, young adolescents who have been struggling with these thoughts, label it as the quarter-life crisis.
Nowadays in our modern society, we are so fortunate to create our future. We have the freedom to make our choices in career and in life. This “spoils” us so much that some of us want to break free from the path society are expecting us to take.
But is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don’t know yet, and that is what I’m trying to figure out.
Here’s what I’ve been up to so far
Coming from a Vietnamese background living in the country of tall people, I’ve always struggled to look over the people here in the Netherlands.
Moving into the student-era, I tried to pursue a career as a medical doctor, but I failed to get into medicine. I did Biomedical science instead, because that’s what we all did. At the end of my bachelor I started to question whether I really wanted to do medical research.
I considered a total switch in career and studies and that’s when I found a bi-lateral course of Science and Business.
I started to read more business/entrepreneurship books, with the 4-hour workweek being a game changer for me.
In my last year with an introduction in Business, I was able to study one semester in Sydney learning more about commerce and all.
While there and being emerged in the startup scene, I wanted to get more involved with startups. This is good because at this moment I joined a startup in Amsterdam (YES.TAP). Looking back, this sure has been a large career switch for me, and I love it!
