A petite dynamo with a huge heart and a big name in her native Vietnam is now a deeply entrenched New Yorker. Ha Phuong is a superstar in parts of Asia. “HP” as she is known amongst friends is an accomplished actress, singer and now a movie producer as well: Her soon-to-be released feature film Finding Julia is a dramatic thriller.
Ha Phuong is well known as a philanthropist, and is involved with charities ranging from the Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove, the Ha Phuong Foundation and the Vietnam Relief Effort. The Ha Phuong Foundation has built a multi-media arts center in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove, Orange County, California.
HP is more determined than ever to help make the world a better place, inspired by her upbringing in Vietnam as well as her love for her two precious daughters, Diana Phuong Chu, 13, and Angelina Tieu Phuong Chu, 12. Last year Ha Phuong was a “Top donor to UNICEF.” As a parent, she often involves her daughters in helping others. She wants them to “learn to love and share with people who are less fortunate.”
Experience two of Ha Phuong’s songs, “Lost in a Dream” and “Come to Me.” Watch for the Finding Julia trailer, here soon and on www.findingjulia-thefilm.com. Appreciative of her own good fortune and actively giving back, 100% of Ha Phuong’s DVD/CD sales, concert revenues and profits from her music and acting career will go to her Foundation.
With her tenacious dedication to everything she does and her bottomless compassion, HP epitomizes the Renaissance Woman of the 21st century.
