Tram is also a bird photography enthusiast, hoping that her photographs can help raise awareness surrounding environmental issues through showing the beauty of our natural world.
She has photographed endangered birds at various national parks and biosphere reserves around Asia. She has also captured photographs of your everyday birds, many of which could be found right outside Fulbright’s Crescent Campus.
