Dieu grew up in an orphanage in Hue. His father died in a flood and his mother, unable to care for her son, abandoned him at an orphanage. "STREETS changed me a lot," he says, "I am confident now."
After graduating from STREETS, Dieu was hired as a Commis Chef at the luxury Anantara Hoi An Resort, where he was specially selected to teach guests at the daily cooking classes. "I love to see the guests happy," he says with an infectious smile. Dieu moved on to the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort . Eager to explore further, he was one of our first graduates to go abroad where he earned a position at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi in the Maldives.
After several years he returned to Vietnam and is now the Junior Sous Chef at Grand Mercure Danang . He continues to support his mother and is now preparing to build a proper house for her in his hometown of Hue.
