Duong's mother currently works as a hired helper at a poultry stall in the local market, which pays very little. It is very difficult to cover even basic daily expenses. Duong was identified to us as at high risk of dropping out of her school.
Duong recently completed high school and left with excellent exam results. She passed the university entrance exam to two highly regarded Vietnamese Universities and will study Medicine and Pharmacy at her chosen University.
Duong will no doubt have to work incredibly hard for the next six years of her medical school course but if she shows the same dedication and hard work she has previously demonstrated, we all believe that Duong will achieve the success she deserves.
