When people think of Vietnam, a lot of them think about the sad history. Yet, while I am a firm believer in never forgetting the past, we really should celebrate Vietnam for its true beauty!
Vietnam has always intrigued me because of its history, it’s one of the reasons why I wanted to visit it. When I arrived I got distracted by how hectic Ho Chi Minh City was at first but that is not my point. I saw just how friendly and happy people were so that kind of hit me, how such a beautiful country could have such a dark past.
But enough about history, I want to share with all of you my time in Vietnam. So I did a 4 month internship at a Non-profit company and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. The internship challenged me but it also made me grow so much both professionally and personally. It made me understand the bigger picture and how not everyone is as privileged and lucky.
The internship was extremely rewarding because I felt like I was able to make a difference somehow. The whole 4 months, I truly believe that I have grown a lot and I am so happy that I did it. Thank you, AIP for making this possible and a special thank you to my colleagues who have inspired me to be better!
