Vi Vi Thai is a writer, truth seeker, healer and fearlessly determined to live a free lifestyle  regardless of others’ opinions.  She uncovered her true life’s purpose after going through a dramatic and stressful time at the end of her stay in the US as an international student and worker. During that time, she achieved a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University and a Masters of Biomedical Engineering from Cornell University. 

At the end of 2017, she started a new life in Canada as a new immigrant from Vietnam. Here, she embarked on a one-of-a-kind nomadic van-life adventure. Living her life purpose, Vi helps others to find their path of freedom to live their authentic selves because only then can we all be living a fulfilled life of happiness. She believes that, as we find our own inner freedom, that is when the world can be free and liberate itself to evolve to a better place in the cosmos. 

When she’s not planning her next adventure, you can find her savoring life’s simple pleasures with her beloved dog Marco.

In this episode, Vi and I discuss her journey of finding her happiness and purpose in travelling the world in her van and living through the process of inner alchemy. Using the ancient art and philosophy of alchemy, Vi takes us on her journey to freedom and happiness. Vi shares her story of being born and raised in Vietnam, moving to the US as a student and worker, losing her job, returning home to Vietnam, rekindling her passion for travelling, and finally arriving in Canada to start her dream of living a life of travel, nature, and inspiration.
