Despite winning a Japanese Language and Cultural scholarship to university, Thep chose to change the direction of his career and become a bartender. By the end of 2016, Thep began working for Layla Eatery & Bar and finds working as a bartender comparable to that of an artist. Whether he is presenting on stage or creating cocktails for his customers behind the bar, Thep loves to bring happiness and delight to all aspects of his trade and will proudly represent Vietnam at the World Class Bartender of the Year Finals 2019.
