Hello and Welcome!

"Love the whole world as a mother loves her only child." Buddha

My name is Crystal. I enjoy sharing my positive thoughts and cooking videos. I hope they will inspire you.  Positive thinking creates positive actions. If everyone were positive and kind, this world would be a wonderful place to live. That's my whole purpose in life - to bring peace to Earth. Thank You, God, for giving me opportunities to spread kindness and love near and far.



Cooking is a form of art that requires creativity. One can only create a masterpiece with passion and lots of practice. 


You can have almost anything in this world, but you have to begin with a desire - a burning desire with a conviction that you will receive it. Then it will manifest itself into whatever forms you wish. Keep your dreams alive no matter what.

About Me

     I am a refugee who migrated to the United States in 1986. I escaped my country in 1985 in a small disguised fishing boat. We were on the Atlantic 

Ocean for five days without adequate food or water. With God's mercy and grace, 198 souls landed on an Indonesia Island safely. I stayed in the refugee camp for one year before migrating to America with my brother.

     I thought life was heaven in America, but I soon found out that it was not! I felt so lonely, homesick, and depressed. For over a decade, I was constantly sad about missing my family so much! I felt lost until  I found my calling - writing. It has given me a purpose to live happily and productively in the last couple of decades.

     In April 2020, I retired from Los Angeles County-  Department of  Public Social Services for 19 years, and plus of service to the poor, sick, and elders. It was the greatest experience I've ever had! I was humbled and honored to serve the public.  

    For the second chapter of my life, I'd like to pursue my passion as a writer, public speaker, and cook.  To give back to society, I would like to give a helping hand to orphanages, the homeless, and refugees. 

    I am a mother of two, a nana to my dearest Jayden and a happy wife.

Developing a Positive Mental Attitude:

Best Practices For Positive Mental Thinking

In 1985, when the communist government closed in on Vietnam, Crystal H. Vo fled from Da Nang to America. As a refugee to the United States of America, Crystal suffered from many of the same stresses that other refugees undergo. Crystal dealt with depression, homesickness, and a feeling of hopelessness that comes from being forced to abandon your home. Now, decades later, Crystal is a published author and an advocate working at the Department of Public Social Services to help men, women, and children from all backgrounds.

The path to success is not often straight nor is it linear. In many ways, finding success requires cultivating positive mental thinking wherever possible. This is where Crystal H. Vo has focused her time and attention, on the idea that developing a positive mental attitude can lead to real changes within life. As a published poet and an active blogger, Crystal H. Vo loves to share stories of optimism, positivity, and inspiration whenever and wherever she can. If you want to develop a positive mental attitude, you might consider subscribing to Crystal's blog, today!

Subscribing to a positive mental thinking blog can be a great way to literally re-wire the way that your brain works. Developing a positive mental attitude is all about putting yourself in a position to see the silver lining. We become what we surround ourselves with and when we focus on the brighter side of life, that can tangibly change the way that we approach our day. When Crystal H. Vo was struggling with depression and homesickness, it would have been easy to let that be the end of her story. Instead, Crystal became a writer and began to pour her joy into the words that have since defined her career.

These books were introduced to the world in 2013 and 2018. They were focused on her life's journey from Vietnam to America through immigration. Crystal takes her readers on a journey that is at once inspired and motivational.

When it comes time to develop a positive mental attitude, consider picking up your favorite Crystal H. Vo's books on Amazon.
