On Sunday, Jun 28th, more than 130 university and college students from saigonchildren’s scholarship programme join our Graduation Ceremony. Everyone has come to celebrate the 65 senior students graduating in 2019. Some has already graduated a few months back, some has a few weeks left in their curriculum, but all of them have gathered to celebrate the end of their journey with saigonchildren. Among them, 49% graduated with distinction, and 85% has found stable jobs with a growing career path.
Precious gifts from the students that we at saigonchildren will treasure for a long time
The highlight of the ceremony came when 4 alumni and graduating students stepped on the stage to share their stories and journey, as well as advice for the younger students:
Hearing such inspiring personal stories, a lot of students began raised questions and turned the ceremony into an intimate and honest conversation about their struggle and triumph. After learning how some of their own overcame hardship and challenges, it is safe to say that every student attending the ceremony was inspired and motivated to do make the best of their time in school to get an education, reach their full potential, and take a step closer to achieve their dreams.
