Mrs. Danh The Ngoc

My name is Danh The Ngoc, the proud owner of Thế Ngọc Ao Dai shop and also the head chef at the Cà Mau Boarding School for Ethnic Minorities.

Ever since I was a young girl, I've had a deep passion for the beauty of traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai. However, due to family circumstances, I wasn't able to pursue formal training in Ao Dai tailoring at that time.

But at the age of 58, with my life finally on a more stable path, I decided to chase my dream and take a risk. I traveled over 300km from Cà Mau to Ho Chi Minh City and enrolled in a tailoring course with the most renowned Ao Dai designer in Vietnam - Đỗ Trịnh Hoài Nam. I had many wonderful memories there. One interesting thing was that the 49 students in my class were all under 30 years old, and I was the only one in my fifties, even older than my teacher by 7 years.

My classmates affectionately called me "Bà ngoại" (Grandma) and always showed me extra kindness and attention, which helped me overcome any physical obstacles I faced due to my age.

Now, I'm thrilled to say that I have my very own Ao Dai shop, Thế Ngọc Ao Dai. It's not just a business to make money, but a place where I get to do what I love every day - create beautiful Ao Dai with my own hands.
