His name is Dat Quoc Nguyen and his English name is Justin because he likes Justin Bieber. He’s 20 years old and he’s from Vietnam but he lives in Marshall.

Justin is an international student.  Before moving to Texas, attended school at Seattle Central College in Seattle, WA for a few months. After that he moved to Marshall with his family and applied to Panola College. His major is business administration and he is freshman at Panola College.  When he graduates from Panola, he will transfer to a California university to work on a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

“California is a big school, it’s a good school for my major, and so many Asian people live there so it will be easy for me,” he says. “Eventually, I would like to move back to Seattle because I have a lot of friends there and I can play billiards and soccer with friends. Living there also saves money for gas because all the transportation is by bus.”

He likes to play soccer and plays his Xbox all the time. He does nails because the family has the Happy Nails shop in Marshall. After he returns home from school, he goes straight to the nail salon to work.  According to his supervisor, Justin is really good at doing nails, and enjoys researching anything and trying to fix everything or replace anything that is broken. He works hard all the time, seven days a week with no time for breaks.
