Can you tell us about your life and studies after the International Biology Olympiad (IBO)?
After winning gold, I was accepted by the Haø Noäi Medical University. I am getting used to college life and enjoy it a lot. At this moment, I don't have plans to study abroad.
Inner Sanctum: When did you start becoming interested in biology?
When I reached grade 8, I started to invest more time and became engaged in it.
Inner Sanctum: Before the IBO, had you competed in any other international competition?
This was the first time I had participated in an international competition and the first time I had travelled abroad.
Inner Sanctum: What about competitions in Vieät Nam? What do you remember the most about them?
I participated in national competitions in 2017 and 2018, and won a second and first prize. What I remember most about that time is preparing for the examinations. At that time we had to study very hard. It was very intense but fun too. It was not only about learning, we ate out together and watched movies. I also miss our fun chats.
