Mrs. Kate Tran

Born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam, I have always loved Ao Dai and have worn it ever since she was a young girl. I frequently see depictions of Ao Dai in daily life. I can still picture girls and women donning dais for weddings and Tet, as well as a lot of female students. Even though I no longer live close to my hometown, I still make the most of every opportunity to wear my beloved Ao Dai in order to preserve Tet memories and enjoy the stunning surroundings where I now reside.

I always feel proud and self-assured when I wear the Ao Dai because of who I am and where I am. I allowed the locals to applaud their Ao Dai and feel happy. Every time I return to Vietnam, I make it a point to search for Ao Dai for my entire family because I not only enjoy wearing the Ao Dai but also want to encourage my kids to do the same. Fortunately, I now have two young acquaintances who consistently enjoy wearing their Ao Dai just like their mother.

A very fond memory I have was participating in an event to introduce traditional national clothes in elementary school. I was proud to dress up and teach students simple greetings in Vietnamese. Especially in areas where my eldest son transferred from elementary to middle school and my 2 younger ones moved from kindergarten to elementary school because it was the right time for cherry blossoms.

I feel happy and proud when wearing Ao Dai. Even my Japanese friends told me that my Ao Dai is so beautiful. I also inspire my children about Vietnamese Ao Dai and encourage them to wear Ao Dai. Every time I come back to Vietnam, I always try to buy Ao Dai for the whole family. Sometimes, I feel so lucky because my children love Ao dai like I do.
