Nghia Hoang


"On top of a mountain" <– This is me in 2007, on top of one of the highest mountains in Sapa, Vietnam. Cool place :D –>

Hi everyone!!! Thank you for coming all the way here to learn about me. My name is Nghia Hoang, although I would love to be called Lim for your convenience. Originally from Hanoi, Vietnam, I’m now a sophomore at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Massachusetts as the other three in my team, studying Computer Science (and a few other things). Therefore by default, I’m in charge of this blog. So if you have any question and/or comment and/or suggestion regarding our little webpage, please let me know.

As people often say “House can reveal a lot about its occupant”, I believe a few things about myself could be read off the layout of this blog. I find beauty in simplicity, and I have been trying really hard to be a minimalist. However, as a non-native English speaker, clarity is my first priority when it comes to expression and appearance. I hate being misunderstood in serious context more than anything in this life.

Since you may have already known about the purpose of my stay in Santa Fe from other pages in this blog, I won’t repeat it here. I just want to say that … I LOVE THIS CITY. So if you are interested, please be sure to check back this page regularly for the links to new entries I am going to write about these exciting two months.

Sincerely, Nghia Hoang.
