Quinndalyn is a nickname given to me by my friends. It is inspired by the name Gwendolyn.

For the series of 3 chocolates, I wanted to tell my story – where I come, who I am, and what I like.

  • THE HOMESCAPE: Showing features of Vietnam, which is where I born and raised. It shows me wearing an “Ao Dai”
  • costume.
  • THE DREAMER: I am a dreamer. It fuels my creativity. This chocolate shows me in an “Ao Ba Ba” costume.
  • THE VERDANT: I love trees and nature. On this wrapper, I am a feature in an “Ao Dai Tu Than” costume.

I want to promote Vietnamese traditional culture. For that reason, I used a Vietnamese inspired style on my chocolates.
