Ms Vu Hue Minh

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Minh is a final-year Business Analytics major who loves to interact with people and serve the community. Prior to joining the Res Team, Minh was part of the Tancho House Committee and Negotiation Workshop. She also spent her Saturday morning with tMentors, tutoring students from New Town Secondary School. Being a potato in her whole life, Minh surprisingly started her Tembusu journey by joining various sport interest groups (join Dodgeball and tSplash!) and now she even hits the gym with her Tembu buddies.

A firm believer of “creating a community wherever you go”, Minh always tries to talk to people around and bond them together. If you don’t see her in the lounge cracking some lame jokes, you can probably hear her voice from a nearby suite. Craving for some Vietnamese food? Knock on Minh’s door anytime! Not a born cook but the circuit breaker has forced her to upgrade her cooking skills. And if her effort to follow the best recipe fails, she will definitely bring you to hidden Vietnamese foodie gems in Singapore.

In her free time, Minh enjoys socializing with people but if there is no one around, she would binge-watch dramas or secretly learn a Kpop song’s choreography.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
