4ebcfd2a460ad7ecWhat is ideal? Most people are sure that ideal does not exist. In reality, everybody has his own attitude to beauty, warmth and good. However, in some cases we can certainly say: this is the purest beauty. A young beautiful teacher from Vietnam Quynh Anh T – “Miss InstaAsia” contestant!

IFX: Why did you decide to take part in this contest?
QA:
This is my first-hand experience in an online contest. It is good to permit myself to reach opportunities to challenge the self. Besides, in my opinions, taking part in this contest gives me a chance to know more about the world reflected somehow through online society. I did expect something like this interview more than the registered profile itself.

IFX: Do you often partake in such kinds of events? In what exactly?
QA:
No, I do not. This is my first-hand experience.

IFX: Miss Insta Asia contest is arranged by InstaForex Company. Have you ever heard of Forex?
QA:
Once I searched for some information for the lectures, I, by chance, knew about Miss Insta Asia contest and Forex for the first time. Afterwards, I did some research to have more knowledge of Forex.

IFX: You mentioned that you work as a teacher. What made you choose such a challenging profession? How did it catch your attention?
QA:
I am working as a contract language teacher at one university in Malaysia. Before teaching in Malaysia, I also started my job as a teacher at my old university. I was first motivated to become a teacher by my old teachers at university who are talented and nice towards students. It is a good experience and a challenge to deal with students who are different in personality and background. In general, the salary of a teacher is not so high; therefore, teaching as a profession is not so motivated. However, I would like to be a good teacher and happy to get respect from students and colleagues. In addition, I prefer educational realm which is in comparison with the corporate environment less competitive.

IFX: Vietnam is an interesting country of contrasts. Do you like the country you live in?
QA:
I would like to hear from you and your perception of the country of contrasts. Indeed, different people have different perception towards the aspects and their ubiquitous contrasts of the countries. What people from other countries think about Vietnam may not be the same with what I can think about. I do miss Vietnam, my motherland and my beloved family when I am working here in Malaysia. I do love her and want to do my best to make things better though my best something may be too little for her.

IFX: If you were the president of your country, what would your first decree be like?
QA:
More precisely, I were the prime minister of Vietnam, my first decree on educational reform along with jobs opportunities created as a motivation for students would be adopted.

IFX: Do you like travelling? If yes, what place would you like to visit first?
QA:
Yes, I do like travelling and it’s one of my hobbies. I would like to visit Italy, the beautiful country I have been in love with since I studied Italian at university. I would first visit Rome with the historic ruins of ancient Rome such as the Colosseum.

IFX: Are you a creative person? What are your hobbies?
QA:
I may say yes. I am a creative person only when I am really involved in and interested in something. My hobbies are traveling, experiencing new things, jogging, listening to the music, watching TV with CNN, National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet and History Channel, etc.

IFX: What are the worst personal qualities one may have?
QA:
The worst personal qualities one may have are (1) dishonest, (2) heartlessness, (3) laziness, (4) impatience, and (5) irresolution.

IFX: What do you appreciate in men?
QA:
I do appreciate their knowledge, wisdom, respect towards women, diligence, reliability, patience, and honesty.

IFX: Do you have your family: a husband and children?
QA:
Yes, I do have a husband.

IFX:What is your vision of an ideal family?
QA:
In my vision, the ideal family would put “family comes first” to care about and get respect from each other.

IFX: What do you think you will become in 20 years?
QA:
I will become a Prof. Dr. at university.

IFX: You told that your dream is to develop your personality and grow more kind-hearted and generous. What do you do to achieve it?
QA:
Beauty of physical appearance fades over time while virtue remains. Thus, that is my dream and my aim of life to develop the true beauty of virtue. In order to achieve it, expose to new things day by day and learn humanity lessons from others; halt myself to avoid unwanted negative attitudes; understand myself in order to understand others later. Besides, while try to develop good personal qualities, forgive flaws and forget the pain to proceed. It is a way to be generous with myself and accepting people’s differences and the knowing that some are more or less fortunate than me. As charity starts at home, be there to share with the less fortunate people around me.

IFX: Thanks for your time. We wish you luck and victory in our contest!
