Aimee Giang Tien Do
"When I was a little girl, every day during class recess, I saw a boy my age selling ice cream outside our school's playground. He could not go to school because he needed to work to support himself and his family. I would never forget the look in his eyes, yearning to be a student himself while watching us kids in the school ground. The scholarships from the Vietnam Education Fund are seeds to help those who want education as the ice cream boy had wished it for himself. "
