WHo I Am
Being the son of Vietnamese war refugees trying to make a living in Germany, I grew up in a little village outside of Munich (Ebersberg for the curious readers among you). My father worked as a garbage collector while my mom was cleaning nursing homes. Even though their jobs were hard, I can not remember one day where they were not smiling trying to ensure that I get the best life possible. I really owe them. They taught me to always be polite, be humble, and constantly work and of course study hard. But the most important lesson was, that I can reach anything I want to if I follow those principles. With this in the back of my head, I grew up going to a school which is in my opinion a Bavarian version of Hogwarts (Gymnasium Gars am Inn – google it, it’s worth it) and learned a different philosophy of living through my friends and the environment. However, one question always arose :
Am I German or Vietnamese?
The Answer: I am Me!
While yes I do not like rice and I usually prefer something like “Spätzle” over it,
I have come to embrace both sides with open arms because I am in a privileged position
to learn the best out of these two worlds.
I will always be polite, but I won’t be afraid to speak up if I do not agree with something.
I will always be humble, but I will celebrate every small win.
I will always work hard, but I will also say stop if I can’t go further.
I will also study hard because learning new things is what keeps me going every day.
I am Kevin Vu Pham
Being always curious
This is my strongest asset! Being curious got me into photography. Being curious about how to portray people differently got me into graphic design. Discovering the component movement, I learned videography. Trying to understand how everything works together got me into programming. My curiosity will always push me forward to expand my horizon and to experience different adventures.
Having a good time
As a very harmony-driven person, I want to ensure that everyone is having a good time around me. Not only on a personal level but also on a professional. Yes, I am the guy, whom you will have a good laugh with. However, I will also ensure that quality is equally important as having a great atmosphere.
