He then left for college and got his first degree as Bachelor of Art, major in English at Dalat University in 2002. Growing up in a country where human right is oppressed and freedom is luxury, he then decided to pursue further in education with the desire to become a lawyer seeking justice and defending for the powerless. In 2007 he earned his Law degree at Hanoi Law University, located North of Vietnam where he resided and worked with a non-profit organization which’s mission was to help and to minister to the orphans. In 2008, he met his wife, a U.S. citizen, then married and moved to the United States within the same year. Though it seemed like he had to start all over again, he did not want to give up his dream of defending the powerless. In 2010, he and his wife started a small Travel and Immigration consultation firm, but that did not fill up his desire until he found CALDA, where he receives full support to become a Legal Document Assistant. In 2013, he and his wife started another business, DP Legal Solution, with its slogan, “Justice for the powerless” where he get to do what he loves, especially helping the helpless and the powerless.
