Tien's journey to her current healthy appearance was not without its challenges. She used to experience stigma and discrimination for her 90 kg body. But after a year and a half of training, playing sports, and following a diet rich in green vegetables, she managed to lose over 30 kg.

She continues to stay in shape by playing sports and exercising daily. By participating in the DNSE Aquaman Vietnam 2023 and other races, she aims to promote a healthy lifestyle to the community.

Tien, born in 1998, went to the Foreign Trade University. She reached the top 10 in Miss Vietnam 2018.
