I have been passionate about journalism since high school and I have spent many years honing my skills as a writer, researcher, and producer of content. I believe that journalism plays a critical role in informing the public, so I strive to produce high-quality journalism that is accurate, fair, and ethical. In my work, I have focused on covering world affairs and foreign policy, which has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the complex issues that shape our world. In addition to my work as a journalist, I am also interested in the digital transformation of the media industry. I am excited to be part of a team that is working to develop a digital transformation strategy that will help our newspaper stay relevant and competitive in the years to come.
Navigating Legal Issues in Digital Media: To emphasize the importance of understanding and following legal and ethical principles to maintain the credibility and trust of the public, it is essential to teach about legal issues in media and journalism. As such, I would like to share my insights and expertise in digital media, which has created new legal and ethical challenges for journalists. Additionally, I am interested in discussing privacy, copyright, access to information, and ethics in Vietnam and other countries.
