Tuan’s parents made a risky decision in the 1990s to flee Vietnam for Germany in search of a better life for their family.
They left him, a two-year-old child, behind in a country still dominated by communism, where food and electricity were scarce.
He was raised by his grandparents and didn’t meet his parents and younger brother until he was 10 years old. He moved to Germany to live with them when he was 12 years old.
During his youth, he experienced racism and prejudice in all its facets.
In 2021, he founded his own IT startup. Tuan is also heavily involved in charitable work. He serves as a board member and advisor for several charities focused on helping underprivileged children and youth.
