Vicky Truong plants seeds that’ll break the foundation our society was built upon. She wants people to flourish in their own ways as they connect to a movement that works towards a more sublime future. She truly believes that everyone can be leaders of change and focuses on empowering others for this. Vicky is a committed activist and community builder working closely with the Asian diaspora, migrant-seen communities in Germany and LGBTQIA+ community; organising festivals, events, workshops and discussions.
Food has been a centre for much of her work as an alternative educator, designer and cook. Being Australian born with Chinese-Teochew, Thai and Vietnamese heritage, she believes that the richness of mixing cultures should be celebrated and a way to bring new structures into society. She hopes to build bridges for diverse communities to overcome the system that restricts us from coming together and rising.
