Hello! Xin Chào!
I’m Angie Ngoc Tran —
UX designer, strategist, problem solver and multipotentialite,
passionate about social impact work in developing communities.
(Angie came from the first two letters of my first name, Ngoc. Got it?)
As my name indicates, I'm from Vietnam, a tropical country full of wonders. I'm currently pursuing an MFA degree in Interaction Design at SVA (School of Visual Arts), Manhattan, NY. I come from a background of Product/Interior Design. My curiosity in how people act, or react, in specific ways, to certain situations led me to this career path. I spend a lot of time pondering on why people do what they do and how to make their experiences better.
On a side note, I'm a 5th Kyu in Aikido, TED Talk advocate, French song lover, food enthusiast, seasonal pescatarian, Escape Game addict, big appreciator of cultural diversity and firm believer of the power of habits.

I believe in creating a life that reflects my values and satisfies my soul. That's why I always seek for opportunities to contribute to social innovation in developing communities.
If you share the same passion, let's collaborate :) No matter what part of the world I'm at right now, I'm only one click away!
