She is currently a student of Tay Do University, majoring in Finance and Banking. It is unclear she will represent Vietnam in any International Beauty Pageant. Elite Vietnam is the license holder of International Beauty Pageants in Vietnam. They will select the candidate and submit to the Ministry of Culture and Communication for approval. Dang Ngoc Han, Miss Vietnam 2010, did not represent Vietnam in any International Beauty Pageant while her runners-up did.
