Sample “Describe a famous person in Vietnam”

Ever since I was a little girl/boy, I have always had such passion for all things beautiful. So it is no  surprise that I am a big fan of beauty pageants. I think beauty queens are not only physically gorgeous, but they are also highly intelligent. Many of them have been able to use their celebrity status to do good and inspire others. One of them is H’Hen Nie whom I admire so much, and if you  know her incredible story, I bet you would too.  

H’Hen Nie was born into poverty in the central highlands of Vietnam. Therefore, she got used to manual labor as such a young age. As a matter of fact, she spent most of her childhood working on coffee farms as a way to support her family. Being an ethnic minority, she faced a lot of challenges  with backward traditions, one of which is to get married as a minor. However, she was a rebel and  determined to continue on with her education, a life changing decision that ended up taking her on a once in a lifetime journey.  

H’Hen Nie was crowned as Miss Universe Vietnam in 2017 even though she remained as a dark horse throughout the entire competition. With an incredible story and a genuine heart, this exotic beauty went on to make history as the first Vietnamese contestant to enter the top 5 at Miss  Universe. She garnered the attention from the press and won over the hearts of millions of fans  around the world. She became an A-lister overnight and started to live the life of a role model to many people, especially those who share the same background as hers.  

Since making history, this 27 year old beauty queen has consistently been giving back to the community and motivates others to join her. If I’m not mistaken, she spent the majority of her  winning prize to build a free public library in her old village as she understands firsthand that  education plays a significant role in the life of young children. And that is the very reason why I’m a die-hard H’Hen Nie fan.
