Tu Scholarship Report from Vietnam

May 20, 2020

"I’m a student majoring in tourism and travel management. After graduating from university, I would like to work in the tourism department in a foreign embassy or consulate. I love exploring new places and interacting with new people. If I have the chance, I would like to go abroad for studying more or for work. Learning languages is my cup of tea. I can speak English, Chinese, and a bit of French.

I am always willing to help people in difficult situations, sometimes I run into children and the elderly who sell lottery tickets on the street, I stop by and help them by buying a ticket. Or simply buying a bottle of water or a dumpling for a public sanitation worker. There are a lot of homeless and poor people where I live, I know I myself have to struggle with my life also. So I can’t help all of them, but what I can do is to help with what I can.

Finally, I sincerely appreciate LifeNets for helping me finish school."

I hope you are doing well. Things have started to improve for me here. Hopefully, things will continue to stay this way and there isn't another outbreak. I really appreciated the help that I received during this outbreak.
Last week, I was able to teach at a school in the countryside. This week, I've started working at a University. As long as I don't get sick or a fever I can continue working. To go inside the school, your tempature has to be checked each time. The temperature is in centigrade.
It looks like Tu ( Vincent ) will be finished with school soon. I sent you an email on April 28th containing his grades from the previous semester. I'll send a request for fees via PayPal.
I imagine you've been quite busy. I hope you and your husband are staying healthy and taking the necessary precautions. I.e face masks, social distancing and hand sanitizer.
There is a British pilot here who could possibly die due to 90 percent of his lungs being destroyed by covid19 they are trying to prepare for him a lung transplant. So far, there have been zero deaths attributed to covid19 in Vietnam.
The borders are still closed and presently I am still unable to go anywhere. I am able to travel with in the country and restaurants have opened back up.
Kind Regards,
Ryan Cooper
