Your profile as an entrepreneur
About myself, the founder? I am Huong, a 16-year-old girl. I live in a city in Vietnam where everything I need is just around me. In the other word, my life is comfortable and convenient. Therefore, this is a reason that I established the project. I feel lucky to be born in a family that my parents can almost afford everything I want. However, other children, they are not that lucky. They lead a hard life with no education, not enough food or clothes. Their life is almost stuck. They are a huge motivation for me to run the project. When I am tired, bored and just want to give up, thinking about them encourages me to keep working. After 2 years, with determination and help from family and friends, the project is still assisting children in need. Although our project have never been awarded or recognised, the smiles on their faces are just enough for me and our team.
