“I was often late as it took me more than an hour to walk to school. I had to wake up very early to be on time.” Quynh explains.
Her father adds: “In the winter, she left for school when the sky was still dark and only came back at dusk.” Despite these challenges, Quynh wasn’t easily discouraged from attending.
Quynh says being in the classroom means that every day she gains a little bit more knowledge; knowledge that she can share with her parents, who want her to be educated.
And she has another motivation. Quynh is working hard to achieve her ultimate goal – to become a teacher.
