Hello from Bloom in Crisis!
Bloom in Crisis is the embodiment of hope — it is a belief, a practice, a state of being that empowers you to skillfully regulate emotions, build spiritual resilience, enhance self-awareness, unleash the potential of your mind, foster a grateful heart, cultivate joy, nurture positive energy, promote inner peace, grow self-compassion and compassion for others, embrace the present moment, derive wisdom from introspection, transform pain into grace, recognize positive possibilities even in adversity, and actively shape your narrative, ultimately leading to a happy and fulfilled life (with a touch of style!)
Knowing deeply how painful and lonely it is to go through incredibly hard times alone, Zip Nguyen has a profound empathy and compassion for people who are going through it. She started blogging when the pandemic started in March 2020 and later on released Bloom in Crisis podcast and YouTube channel, with a mission to give back as much as she can in her lifetime, and create a global community where everyone from different cultures, generations, and backgrounds overcome tough times together, learn, and uplift each other through the power of authentic storytelling, cross-learning, and sharing pragmatic guidance.
Globally connected, locally relevant, personally touched — this is where vulnerability is normalized, underrepresented voices are amplified, diversity is celebrated, and genuine support are given. Believing that everyone can 'bloom in crisis' and having a deep desire to help others internalize this for themselves, Zip founded Bloom in Crisis to share how she practices it and what she's learned throughout her journey.
"...because everyone is a bloomer and we bloom in crisis together."
