What is the most important thing the bachelor should know about you? The Bachelor needs to know how important my family is to me, and also how much I want to have my own family.

What makes you different from the other bachelorettes? The one quality that will set me apart from the other bachelorettes is that I'm real. All that matters to me is spending time with people who I love and care about. That's truly what I want and strive for.

What type of music do you like? I like alternative music like Nirvana, Damien Rice and Coldplay. I also love Mariah Carey and Britney Spears.

Who is your hero? My mom and dad are my heroes for many reasons. They’ve been through so much and have told us stories about when they were growing up in Vietnam and all of the challenges they faced, including escaping the war. They told us those stories to instill good values in us which taught us to appreciate life. They have five kids, and my dad is an entrepreneur, so in the early years, they were running three or four business while raising us. They've made me the person I am today, so I'm grateful for that.

What can't you live without? My family. They make me so happy. We're always laughing and being goofs. It's great having a big family.

Where is your favourite place to travel? Europe. I love Greece. My sister and I went on an adventure there and got so lost – it was such an adventure.

What is one thing on your bucket list? I really want to go backpacking because I love an adventure. I also want to visit Vietnam where my parents were born and raised. 

What is your dream date? Going to Disneyland or Disney World. That would be amazing.

What are your relationship deal-breakers? If he does any drugs or doesn’t want kids, that's a deal-breaker. 

What are your three best qualities? My sense of humour, my compassion for people that I care about, and my ability to get along with everyone.

Your three worst qualities according to an ex? Once I like someone, it's hard for me to let go; I always consider everyone before myself, which can be bad; and I can be too spontaneous. 

What is the meaning of marriage to you? Being married is not about a legal document to me. It's about being a team and working together to make each other’s lives better, and enjoying life together.
