Portraits of VN Steemians.jpg

I joined Steemit on March 2018, where I found a fast growing Vietnam Community. It was a great opportunity for me to get to know many nice Vietnamese people from many different backgrounds and also from many different parts of the world, including those inside and outside of Vietnam. I’m happy to be a member of the Vietnam Community. And I’m so proud to see a community that has solidarity and support as its core values, with each person adding their value to the Vietnam Community and also to the wider Steemit community.

Together, we work towards reducing negative behavior and guiding members to use Steemit in a way which adds more value to the wider Steemit community and in doing so, allows the member to get greater rewards on Steemit. I can see the Vietnam Community developing in a solid and positive way. I think there are many other Vietnamese who have thought the same and feel the same way.

I’m sure there are many great stories on this developing journey of our Vietnam Community. So I created this small contest as an opportunity to listen to everyone’s stories and share them with the wider community.

  • The aim of this contest is for you to nominate a person in the Vietnam Community that you like and are inspired by. I will then draw the nominees in the 3 winning posts.

The contest is called:
