Hung Dinh, 30, and his sister Chau Dinh, 27, have always been close. The mere three-year age gap between them means they were raised side by side, often in each other's shadow. Despite their closeness, or perhaps because of it, the two have always been competitive.
"He was always better than me," says Chau. "So, my parents wanted me to consider him my example. I had to be better and better in order to catch up with him."
Chau indeed kept up with her big brother. They graduated from the same high school and undergraduate college in Vietnam, their native country, and on Friday, Dec 8, they will both graduate from Clayton State University with their MBAs.
Just three years ago in April 2014, the duo moved to the United States from Vietnam to pursue graduate studies. Hung holds an undergraduate degree in engineering from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in Vietnam and Chau holds an undergraduate degree in business from the same university.
