Linh Do Ngoc
Linh Do Ngoc Bao (Jinny) grew up in the suburbs of Hanoi, Vietnam. She is interested and participated in advocacy work in fields of social justice and environmental protection. Linh is not afraid to venture into new concepts, and hopes to find innovative solutions to global issues.
At a young age, Linh was taught to always stand her ground and never give up on what she believes in. Entering primary school, she began to express her own opinions and build up more confidence. Linh became more involved with raising awareness and learnt to always hold on to her own perspective; never letting outside interference cloud her beliefs.
Linh has been involved in numerous extracurriculars and leadership roles throughout her academic career. She has been a part of her school’s Student Council since Primary; she has recently accepted the role of Prefect and Co-Head of the Department of Social Awareness. In addition, Debate club was also a passion of Linh’s, as she has engaged in numerous debate tournaments. Outside of academics, Linh is a member of her school’s Varsity Volleyball Team. For her work in social impact, she was invited by Learning Planet Festival 2023, co-organized by UNESCO and many partners, to partake in the global ASPIRE 2030 campaign for youth health and empowerment.
Looking ahead, Linh’s main goal is to be able to apply into universities that would ensure her a high quality and interdisciplinary education. With an interest in Human Sciences, specifically Psychology, Linh aspires to go into the treatment route of psychiatry to fulfill her desire to help improve people’s mental health. She also believes social entrepreneurship is a complementary pathway to accomplish this goal.
