55: Light Is Always Within with Amy Corey

I loved my interview with Amy, so young and so wise with such a wonderful energy!

Born and adopted from Da Nang, Vietnam at six months old. Her birth name is Dang Thi Minh Hanh; a very symbolic and meaningful name. In Vietnamese “Minh” means “bright” and “Hạnh” means “good morale, good soul”. Combining those two doesn’t just make a powerful name, but a powerful person, and that power has unintentionally made Amy Minh Hạnh Corey not only “one to watch” but “One to make a difference” and known by her fans as “The one who understands the Misunderstood”.

At only twenty-three years of age, Amy Minh Hanh Corey has started a creative empire just by being honest with her life, her mental health, and overcoming her past struggles with being adopted, bullying, depression, attempted suicide, self harm, eating disorders and so much more.  

She passionately infuses this honesty in her music, speaking, writing, brand, ambassadorships, and other entrepreneurial projects. 

Amy’s name and message has gained recognition in multiple industries, by public figures and big names such as Dolly Parton, Gary Vee, Dr. Oz, Scott Conant, Kevin Guest (CEO OF USANA), Andy Wilman (Executive producer of The Grand Tour), Madame Tôn Nữ Thị Ninh (HCMC Peace and Development President, Former Ambassador to Vietnam of the EU) along with hit songwriters and other public figures throughout the world. 

Amy is an Ambassador for Holt International’s Child Sponsorship program as well as the fourth Goodwill Ambassador for HCMC Peace and Development Foundation in Vietnam. Her compassion and understanding to those who feel misunderstood is what sets Amy in her own league and has given her the drive to expand her voice in multiple industries and around the world to better the world.

I loved my interview with Amy, so young and so wise with such a wonderful energy!


Some key points from our interview:

·        How when she was just eight years old, she faced many traumas which impacted on her mental health

·        How her unhealthy coping strategies became a normal way of life for her – eating disorders, self-harm, suicide attempts etc

·        How she had to become her own hero and music was big part of that and helped her to heal

·        How she’s now passionate on creating healthy coping strategies for herself

·        How she’s also sharing and speaking out about her struggles in order to help others too
