“I am very honoured to share with you my story, full of happy and less happy moments. Much of my childhood was very peaceful, and I feel very grateful for that.
When I was 17, my mother fell gravely ill, that’s when life became more difficult. I didn’t have enough money to go to school, so I stopped going, to be able to fulfil the basic needs of my family. That’s when my path crossed Children of The Mekong, I was lucky and got a sponsor who sent me some money, that way I could go back to school. Mrs Danièle sent me money every month, she became my second mother.
She helped me through four years of University and thanks to her, I was able to graduate in good conditions. I have a bachelor’s degree from Hai Phong University and I majored in English. I’m now a TV journalist on the Hai Phong channel (THP). I got married 5 months ago and I am expecting my first child!
With my new job and my good living conditions, I really wanted to say how grateful I am for my sponsor and for Children of the Mekong. I am very lucky, and I wish to many other children to meet good people, as I did, who will allow them to hope for a future like mine!
Thank you so much once again,
Ninh Hoang Thi “
