When Sa Pa was a little girl, she was shy and nervous to be different. Growing up, Sa Pa gradually earns confidence in her look. Due to her stunning eyes, the girl has appeared in many photoshoots.

"Because of the special eyes, I was teased by my friends and always felt timid when I was little. I became much more confident now," the girl said, noting she has learned to love her uniqueness. Sa Pa said her eyesight was completely normal, although other people often think that the blue eye has problems.

Born into a poor family, the girl has worked hard since a young age. The girl's hometown, Bau Truc village in Ninh Thuan province is recognized as the oldest pottery village in Southeast Asia that still exists. Besides studying, the girl helps her parents with their pottery workshop.

Sa Pa got into Nha Trang University in 2019 and is the only child in her family that goes to university. The family could not afford to send her elder sisters and brothers to college. When being informed about Sa Pa's difficult situation, the headmaster of Nha Trang University offered support.

"Knowing Sa Pa's situation, we decided to let her stay in the dormitory for free. At the same time, we also recruited her to work for the admissions consulting department," said To Van Phuong, the university principal.

Sa Pa studies tourism, hoping to become a tour guide one day to introduce her hometown to foreign visitors. “I love to learn about many cultures, so I chose the tourism major.” The girl said if she became a tour guide, she first wanted to promote her homeland's tourism, bringing Cham culture closer to tourists.

These days, Sa Pa's village is going through lockdown regulations after recording 18 patients positive with coronavirus. The twenty-year-old girl with a bold look, healthy tan, brilliant smile applied to work as a volunteer to raise awareness of pandemic prevention, help them buy food and necessary items.
