“If you believe in yourself that you did the right thing today, you don’t need to worry about tomorrow.”
Knowledge cannot be the universal key to all problems in the world. However, knowledge brings its worth to the ones who can seize it. For me, educating people, especially educating children – future generations – is the most practicable und realistic way to bring a better present as well as future, not only for the children themselves but also for the community, and more widely for the world itself.
Furthermore I really believe in equity, that everyone, regardless of the social background and living conditions, should be benefited with equal basic education and living conditions. However my worldview is certainly not the actual reality, as education for children in some parts of the world is still a desired luxury, especially in difficult areas such as the northern, mountainous regions in Vietnam.
Working with the LO-ANH Foundation (LOAN Stiftung) will open a new door to my life’s longing goals, helping me to see the world from different perspectives, seeing life from much deeper aspects. Personally, I truly believe home is where we feel happy. I volunteered since early stages of my life and developed since then my way of life. Therefore I will be very happy when I contribute something for other people and the world.
