From Bachelor of Media and Communications graduate to owner of a literacy agency representing dozens of international authors.
Thuy loves words. She runs her own literary agency in Vietnam where she represents international authors to local publishers and introduces Vietnamese authors to the world. In 2014 she worked as an interpreter for Australian director David Bradbury’s film The Crater: a Vietnam war story. She won the 2013 June Shenfield Poetry Award and hopes to publish her first book of poems soon.
Thuy describes her time at Swinburne as “boot camp for the brain”. Besides studying, she regularly contributed to the student-run Burn magazine. On whether Swinburne has given her an advantage in her career, she said, “I don’t compare myself to my peers, but to my old self. I’m so much more mature and able to thrive in this ever changing world.”
