Vogue Paris Spotlights Lana Condor’s Vietnam Girls Scholarship

February 17, 2021 — Vogue Paris features The Asia Foundation in a profile of actor and Lotus Leadership Award honoree Lana Condor. Since 2017, the Foundation has worked with Condor to support female scholars in her birth town of Can Tho, Vietnam.

“I feel proud to use my voice and continue to tell people that the Asian-American experience is not one experience alone,” Lana told Teen Vogue in 2020. “It’s something that I don’t plan on ever stopping. Making TV and movies is awesome, but if you have a purpose behind it, it’s even better.”


Lana has also organised a scholarship through non-profit The Asia Foundation and worked with Michelle Obama for her Girls’ Opportunity Alliance to improve education for young people in Vietnam and Malaysia.
