OVERSEA VIETNAMESE WOMEN
Self Discovery with Home Return
Posted: May 02,2007

Tracey Nguyen, 30, a senior consultant on business strategy for IBM, has been invited by the United States State Department to speak in a program called “Speakers” in Viet Nam aimed at enhancing understanding between the two countries, which will run from April 2-6. The Vietnamese American hopes she relay her inspiration and experience to the businesswomen in Viet Nam.

Behind her slender and youthful appearance, Tracey Nguyen has had many achievements. The Nha Trang-born girl had a difficult childhood, but she persevered. Tracey Nguyen was granted a scholarship by Johnson & Wales University and was selected to give a speech at the degree ceremony in 1998. The speech was voted by Glamour Magazine as one of the most impressive speeches of the female graduates at the ceremony.


“My first return to Viet Nam changed me.” She said, going on to explain that after leaving for the US her life became disconnected from her Vietnamese roots. In 1999 she came back to Viet Nam for the first time. After meeting people from her homeland, she felt she had a better understanding of herself.

Tracey has set up Tu-Anh LLC with her older sister, specializing in designing footwear and jewelry. After three years her company was listed in many fashion magazines such as InStyle, Lucky, and Women’s Wear daily, as well as on the “Today” show on American television. Later on she joined the
Doneger Group, a fashion consulting company, and became their youngest marketing manager.

I
n 2004, Tracey stopped doing business to concentrate on her post graduate study in business management. Thanks to her knowledge, she was recruited as a senior consultant by IBM in 2004 at the age of 29. Enjoying the work at IBM, Tracey still anticipates doing her own business in the future and hopes to have an opportunity to do business in Viet Nam.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
