Vinh, Viet Nam

Describe your hometown:

I live in the heart of Vinh city where tourists frequently visit many of our beautiful landmarks. Vinh Central Square is close to nature – the sea, mountains and forests. I love Vinh and cannot imagine any other city in a developing country with fresh air like Vinh.

What kind of work do you like to do when you are not microtasking online?

Make money by selling toys and games online. I often make money by spending countless hours playing online games like World of Warcraft, Dota 2.

What made you interested in microtasking?

It is a fun way to make money and pass time doing interesting and informative tasks. I do it because I learn quite a bit from the researching-tasks I tend to do. It also enables me to familiarize myself with certain search engines.

How do you like tasking with CrowdFlower?

I like CrowdFlower tasks because it gives me the freedom to govern my own time and allows me to choose the jobs I feel like tasking on!

What do you do for fun? (when you’re not tasking, of course)

I often play online games. I used to read manga and watch anime but now I read Chinese novels which I think is a great way to pass time! I also like to surf the Internet. 

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?

If I could travel anywhere in the world right now, I would go to Japan. My cousin is from Japan and he speaks highly of the blue waters and white sands. I would also love to experience the tranquility and beauty Barbados has to offer. It seems like a serene place to be.

What is something that you have always dreamt of doing?

I always wanted to be a programmer and professional hacker. It will enable me to roam the online world freely!

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself?

I currently live alone and am happy to have lived a quiet life!  I feel that you should always laugh, love and live life to the fullest and always treat everyone the way you like to be treated.
