Hello!
Welcome to my website

ABOUT

My name is Ha Phuong Le. I come from Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. My two biggest hobbies are playing the piano and traveling.

Since I was little, my parents have taken me to travel a lot so that I got many opportunities to experience different cultures in my country and the world. These trips make me an open-minded person and always eager to try new things. The United States of America is one of those things. Finishing two years at Northern Virginia Community College, I transferred to George Mason University to pursue my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. This is my junior year. Before coming to the America, I did not learn much about programming and related stuff. However, the more I dig into it, the more fascinated I am with this field.

My second pastime is play piano. At first, I went to piano classes and was taught from the basic techniques by playing children songs to more advanced skills through classical compositions in different eras. Now, piano is one of my favorite things to do when I am either stressful or free. After fifteen years playing piano, I gained many skills that are valuable to my future life as it teaches me to focus on different things at the same time, strengthens my patience, and improves my memory capacity.
