At an early age, Ivy fled Vietnam with her family by boat and arrived at a refugee camp in 1989 where she lived for four years. During this time, she received first-hand experience of life’s hardships. For this reason, in 2007 Ivy joined a non profit organisation with the passion to support missionary work both in Australia and overseas. Ivy is currently working in finance and marketing. In 2012, Ivy enthusiastically became an office bearer with VABAA. She saw this as an opportunity for her to utilise her skills and knowledge to make a difference in society.
