Hong TranHi there!

Even though I look Asian, I actually speak seven languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, and Irish.

I’m a jolly spirit who wants to help you, whether you like it or not. ūüôā

I¬†lived in a Buddhist monastery in southern France for a year, where¬†I¬†enjoyed performing with the monastics and retreatants¬†so much on¬†Christmas and New Year’s Eve that I¬†decided to become an actor¬†in a country where I had always wanted to live: Ireland!

I’ve played an Irish-speaking Chinese mother in a bilingual 3-part comedy TV series √Čir√≠ Amach Am√ļ (Wrecking The Rising)¬†that aired on the Irish channel¬†TG4.

Thanks to my experience of working with young adults¬†in the monastery, I write¬†Young Adult (YA) novels to help teenagers appreciate different cultures and learn about true happiness. I also enjoy¬†helping¬†young adults to practice mindfulness by forming their own communities in order to¬†support one another through the joys and struggles of everyday life. I truly believe that empowered teenagers will change the world. ūüôā

I live in Los Angeles to seek¬†adventures as an actor / producer / writer, weaving with the practice of mindfulness. If you want to follow my adventures, bookmark this page and come back for updates.¬†ūüėÄ
