Hi, I am Duy from Hanoi, Vietnam. I have been living in Hamburg since 2015. At the beginning, my great interest for East Asian culture had led me to sign up for the BA course of Japanese studies at the University of Hamburg. As new academic possibilities was opened up to me ever since, I am now attending the MA course of Languages and Cultures of South East Asia with the focus on Vietnamese culture and history. I am passionately interested in cultures and languages, beside my academic interest, I like to involve myself in cultural activities, such as tea ceremony, calligraphy, folk-painting or organizing cultural events. That is why to be a part of team PIASTA is a great fun for me!
