About Dr. Mykim Tran

Dr. Mykim Tran is a humanistic psychologist, keynote speaker, educator, life coach, and author. She started her career as a speaker in 2010 by motivating and inspiring individuals to feel good about themselves by educating them about body image, health and wellness, and self-confidence. However, she discovered that her strengths align more with mental health during her master's program in Health Psychology, which she attained at Walden University in 2013. She believes that when individuals have mental health, they will have the self-esteem to overcome and achieve anything. In 2014, she published her first book, Self-Esteem Building: How to Live Your Life as You. As she continued her education journey into her PhD program in Humanistic Psychology, she realized her passion for personal development and human potential. She achieved her PhD at Saybrook University in 2022. Dr. Tran uncovered that as individuals learn and develop, they will unleash their passion and life purpose, which they can use to create a powerful legacy.
