I would like to introduce myself I am Le Van Vu, I am a student of the Faculty of Information Technology, majoring in computer science, University of Sciences (HCMUS-VNU). Entering a major in mathematics with information technology, I had a lot of interesting experiences. I am pursuing research on Intelligent Data and Machine Learning, it is really hard but worth to learn.
As mentioned at the beginning of the essay, the reason I applied for VEF applications was that I really needed that help. Because I was born into an unlucky and family which has bad financial condition, life was with: "tears are more than smiles!" When I received the scholarship, I was very happy and happy, as evidenced by the radiant smile in the pictures taken during the first scholarship ceremony which has the participation of Mrs. Giang Tien and her friend, Mr. Nam, Ms. Dung, the teachers in the IT department and all the students who received, is the main characters of the ceremony.
VEF not only gives me financial support but also really helpful words from my predecessors. The scholarship award ceremony which was held at the end of August, was really like a talk with the natural and relaxed atmosphere that make the main atmosphere of the meeting. The students listened to the sharing from sponsors, teachers. Especially, it is the exchange in both English and Vietnamese, which is also an opportunity for them to practice your foreign language skills.
In addition, Mrs.Giang Tien also gave them white shirts with the precise bamboo symbol of VEF, although their size are quite wide but everyone weared beautifully because it contains the affection of Miss Tien. After the scholarship meeting, everyone had dinner at a restaurant on Nguyen Trong Tuyen street with a cozy atmosphere. Here, she and her friends sat down to exchange issues in life and study. Especially with the participation of many important people, the previous students who have received VEF scholarships. Honestly, VEF gives me great motivation! The money I received is used for real-life purpose: covering my daily life, studying English, buying online courses.
Talking about my outreach in life, it's like a movie that hasn't ended. Since I received the matriculation notice from the University of Science, I entered Saigon with all my confidence and independence. I myself buy train tickets, look for accommodation, look for financial support to take care of my life. Besides, I also embark on part-time jobs to earn money, it is very strenuous and time-consuming. Now, I work as a tutor to teach natural science subjects to junior high school students. It is the most suitable part-time job for Vietnamese students. For me, life is not something that repeats as a habit or a programming software but rather as experiences which has frustrations and joys. In the future, when I have a stable job with good financial ability, I want to set up a small charity fund to help the lonely older people who has difficult circumstances or disadvantaged students.
I am now a technical student, I have also spent a long time in high school. I personally believe that a good education is one that listens, innovates and creates. The main focus is on people,
not anything else. Education must create people who have strong knowledge, become capable people who can change the country and the world.
Finally, I would like to express my deep gratitude and sincere thanks to Mrs. Giang Tien and the sponsors for giving students such a meaningful scholarship. I personally have a small suggestion that VEF should expand the scholarship form, in addition to financial support, it is necessary to have scholarships for English or programs for study abroad, employment. I hope VEF fund is growing and developing to bring motivation, happiness for more students!
