Hey there, I’m Zean. I’m (forever) a creative creator.
I don’t like to gamble but if there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, it’s myself.
Hailing from a small beach town in Viet Nam called Nha Trang, Zean has made her commitment to be a life-long learner and appreciator by pursuing the passion for art and design in Lasalle College of The Art, Singapore.
Starting her career as a multi-talented creative professional, Zean led up several roles in the art and fashion business, from exhibition curator to photographer and art director. Her creative works have been recognised 2 times by International Photography Award, Honourable Mention.
At the age of 23, Zean joined ZALORA Group, devoting her expertise in branding, design and fashion photography for the regional creative department. During this time, Zean took on several digital transformation projects for the SEA’s fashion e-commerce giant such as launching the ZALORA (Online) Fashion Magazine across 8 countries. She then progressed to be in a unique position which led the collaboration among different teams across the region to kick off several important brand launches for the group. One of the most successful events was the global launch of Ivy Park, an activewear clothing line co-founded by American recording artist Beyoncé.
Zean continued her yearning for knowledge, innovation and leadership by taking a big leap in 2016 to co-found a tech startup, Browzzin, a leading fashion social-commerce community. As a newcomer in the industry, it was Browzzin’s honour to be the only Singapore based tech startup that is nominated as one of the finalists for the Best Digital Innovation award during Drapers Digital Award UK, competing against world-renown fashion players such as Farfetch, BESTSELLER, Zalando SE and NET-A-PORTER.
Never stop her root of being an art soul, Zean recently debuts her new project in 2019 by launching a series of abstract paintings, making her first solo art business as a visual artist. While hustling as a female founder in the tech industry and an artist, Zean is also pursuing her further studying at MIT Sloan School of Management, Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) with the subject of Artificial Intelligence - Implications for Business Strategy.
“Life’s most fascinating secret that I’ve known about is love. Love is a powerful force of anything possible. So we should live with love, do things with love, treat people with love and truly give ourselves the best love that we deserve - Self Love.”
Superpower I desire
I smile and all the hatred disappear
Things I bring to Mars
My wildest dream
Being a DJ (I am working on it!)
Best nickname I ever had
