On my visit to Vietnam this April I stopped in Ho Chi Minh City to see
Trang, who together with her sister Lan were the first two children
sponsored by CEF back in 2003. (Wow - 10 years ago!) Trang is now
working as an assistant teacher and continuing with post-college courses
as she considers whether to continue a career in teaching, which she
loves doing, or pursue work in business.
Linda asked me to speak to Trang about how CEF has affected her life,
and the benefits of education for Vietnamese girls, and I was able to
record some of her responses on my phone. She was very nervous about
being filmed, especially speaking in English, but her sincerity and
desire to provide information helped her get through the ordeal. I found
her comments very moving and hope that others will too when we post the
video to the blog.
