Tuong Van was born into a typical household, but as she grew older, her body started showing numerous symptoms similar to those of her brother, and as a result of spinal muscular atrophy, her body steadily shrunk. During her school days, she had to use a wheelchair to go to school and suffered a lot of bullying from friends and the “forgetfulness” of people around her. Despite everything that goes wrong, she never loses her confidence, overcoming social stigmas to become a representation of the will to live.
Currently, she is the Chairwoman of the Management Board of the Will to Live Center – a non-profit organization operating in the field of information technology and life skills training and education for people with disabilities. At the same time, she also founded the group “Spine Injury” with 800 members to help them overcome their own obstacles and strive for their own future.
Not stopping at running the Will to Live Center, she continued to become the founder of Imagtor – a company specializing in providing image processing services with 50 employees. This is considered as one of the 25 best social enterprises in Asia in 2017. In addition, she is also a member of the program of Asian social entrepreneurs in 2017 in Thailand; was honored as one of the 50 most influential women in Vietnam in 2019 by Forbes Vietnam magazine.
