Vietnamese-born, California-grown, ThienVinh has studied, lived, and worked on four continents. When she’s not busy creating a more interconnected and socially conscious world, she can be found writing her PhD dissertation—on the topic of urban development and governance in the oil city of Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana. In her spare time, ThienVinh is an avid flora and fungi forager, cook, and ceramicist.
