He is the grandson of Ty Van and Gai Nguyen.

When he’s not busy with his studies, doing homework after school at his mother’s 5 Star Nail & Spa business in Greenwood, the 7-year-old enjoys playing football at home.

What is your favourite subject at school? I like to learn math.

What do you enjoy most about learning math? Speed ​​drills, because you need to save time very quickly and need to make quick decisions. You need to make quick decisions because if time is running out and you don’t complete them all, you might lose a few points on your grade. I usually subtract during speed drills or both adding and subtracting.

Did you enjoy being out of school during the holidays? Yes a lot.

What did you enjoy doing the most during the holidays? Probably play football.

Do you like sports? Especially football, and my second favorite is football.

Who is your favorite footballer? Diego Maradona. He was in Argentina, but he died in 2020. And Cristiano Ronaldo. In 2021, I think he was at Manchester United, but I have no idea which team he is in in 2022. And that’s it.

Do you have other hobbies? Probably just playing video games and basketball.

What is your favorite video game? Roblox. I’m actually a veteran. I’ve been playing since 2017. I lost my account back then and created 14 new accounts.

What’s your favorite dish? Probably like a steak or something.

What is your favorite candy or dessert? It would probably be ice cream or Snickers.

Do you have a favorite TV show? I do not watch television.

Do you like to read books? Yeah I know that. I don’t know what kind of books. It could be anything. My favorite type of books are probably the sports genre type, like soccer, football, basketball.

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? Probably a footballer.

What football position do you want to play? Definitely a goalkeeper, or a GK. That means defending the net as well as possible, but if they shoot and it goes right behind you, that’s a goal.

If you could invent anything, what would it be? It’s difficult. It would be… Definitely non-deflatable tires. Because if you run over a nail your tires will burst, but with non-deflatable tires you can just drive anywhere. Tires that don’t deflate at all and will never wear out. This will save a lot of money.

If you could change one thing about Greenwood, what would it be? The absence of a movie theater because there are zero here. And people should stop stealing and stop being racist. And that’s all.
