Reflections on a Summer in the United States


I’ll be heading back to Vietnam this week after seven weeks in the U.S. — the longest period I’ve spent in this country in almost 15 years.

I’m so grateful to the hundreds of people who took the time to meet with me and invited me to speak with your colleagues along my journey in New York, Washington, D.C., and the San Francisco Bay Area. Thank you.
