He's currently in Portland, Oregon but soon to be onto his next destination armed with his camera, laptop, and an "anything-is-possible" attitude. Below Huyen has shared some of his favorite quotes and given us some insight on what they mean to him.

"The world is a book, and those who don't travel only read one page." - Augustine of Hippo

Huyen: I think travel, real travel, is something we all yearn to do. We want to travel more because it enables us to know what it means to be free. Transversing the vastness of earth helps us see how small a space we really occupy. It's a great remedy for human ego. Our social constructs about the world lose their hold on us and we're free to expand our perspectives. Travel is what it means to experience freedom to the farthest reaches of its limitless shores. 

"The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Huyen: We are the sum of our experiences. They becomes part of us. I think it's important to differentiate between diversity of experiences and the longevity of an experience. I think the former is highly underrated in our business-oriented world. In the business world, people with more experience are valued. But outside that world, these individuals aren't necessarily more experienced. They simply have one year's worth of experience repeated many times over. In contrast, I've discovered that individuals with more experience in life overall, both positive and negative, are more interesting to talk to. They have a presence about them.

"Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things with happen." - Conan O'Brien

Huyen: Hard work and kindness never go out of style.
