Thuc Nhi



For a long time, I often heard my grandmother and mother talk about the Ao Dai as a source of pride for Vietnamese women. The image of gentle girls with their dresses flowing with each step left a deep impression in my mind. I used to wonder why it was so special until my mother gave me an Áo Dài for my 10th birthday.


"Oh, this is an Ao Dai! It looks amazing!" I still remember my mother choosing a white Ao Dai with soft fabric, skilled and delicate seams. She told me to try it on, and after that first time, I understood why my mother, grandmother, and everyone around me loved the Áo Dài so much.


At first, I struggled with the buttons on the side and the collar, so I had to ask my mother to help me. When my mother's hands helped me with those buttons, I realized the care and love she had for me, making me feel fortunate and happy.




I love wearing the Ao Dai, it makes me look graceful and skillful with every step. When wearing it, meeting curious tourists and explaining that it is Vietnam's traditional costume, I feel very proud. And I remind myself to preserve the values that the Ao Dai brings.


In the Miss Universe 2020 pageant, Khanh Van said, "With the Ao Dai, it is not only a friend but also a storage of the beautiful memories of women, as we see our grandmothers, mothers, and sisters wearing it on special occasions." Her words left a lasting impression on me, and I really want to have the opportunity to introduce the Áo Dài to my friends around the world, so everyone can feel the beauty of the Áo Dài - a costume that everyone in Vietnam loves and cherishes.
