#13 Milie Nguyen 🇻🇳 - Find a purpose that makes you alive
Play • 1 hr 26 min

🎤 “Through my journey, I can observe how different I am from being a person without purpose with the person I am today. That makes a complete difference in anyone's life.”

🇻🇳 Milie is the co-founder of Innovation Incubator, a social enterprise that aims to unleash the leadership potential of young Vietnamese. Her mission is to foster social innovation and entrepreneurship for sustainable development in grassroots communities. 

🧭 We lay down her journey discovering youth leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship with AIESEC - the largest youth-run non profit -, with UNDP, Tandemic and APYE. She shares with us how each of these experiences successively built one brick of what Innovation Incubator is today.

💥 We discuss why it’s important for youth to find a purpose that makes them alive and how finding it for herself changed her vision of life!
