Q1: Ms. Khanh Linh - Co Em Trendy | Safe Zone or Comfort Zone?

  • "Experiencing a long period of social distancing, young people tend to fall into a state of difficulty, even lack of motivation, confusion, and disorientation. Notwithstanding, when following Ms. Khanh Linh's activities over the past period across different fields and platforms, we are inspired by her consistent enthusiasm and passion. From that experience, can Ms. Khanh Linh share your personal feelings on this issue and suggest  03 things young people need to remember to renovate their morale and build new plans for the future?

Q2: Ms. Khanh Linh - Co Em Trendy | Break Through

  • Many young people are confused about whether following their career path or partaking in extracurricular activities is considered a contribution to the community. Our youngsters have a strong passion for civic engagement, yet do not know how to contribute. Can you share your thoughts on this matter?

Follow-up Q2:  Ms. Khanh Linh - Co Em Trendy | Break Through

  • "Move in the "new normal", should we move fast (fast, hurry to do things that have been delayed for a long time) or slowly (carefully observe the situation until it's really okay)?. Can Khanh Linh help me with the answer? - From Youth Representative Soi from Binh Phuoc Province - Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities.

  • As far as we know, Ms. Helly participated for the 3rd year in a row in the series of VAS Talks: 'Need to empower and trust the young generation'. Is that one of your most positive moves?

9h40 - 9h50: Q&A - Ms. Helly Tong

Follow-up Q3:  Ms. Helly Tong  | Movement in "Volatility"

Q4: Ms. Helly Tong | Right Attitude

  • Each of us sees the world through a distinct lens, which colors and shapes our perceptions. Let's call this lens our (attitude). Carl Jung once said, “Attitude is the psychological readiness to act or react in a certain way.”

  • Those words made a deep impression on us. So, Ms. Helly, can you share a little bit about the attitude of young people in the new normal to be able to move towards 'the right"?

  • Specifically: Have a positive attitude, desire to contribute to the community,...

Follow-up Q4:  Ms. Helly Tong  | Right Attitude

  • "I think at this moment, the ability to adapt has become more important than ever. But how to select the 'right', the suitable environment for us to choose to adapt to. Because I see that there are many factors that can make young people choose the 'wrong' situation to adapt to. - From Mai Huyen Trang, Bac Ninh, National Economics University.
