Thank You Letter to Let’s Vietnam 2016 Participants
To our dearest participants,
It is said that every person passes through our lives leaves certain impact upon ourselves, and helps complete our vision of the world as well as who we are. This is certainly the case with every group of students and faculty members that we have welcomed to Vietnam over the past years. In 2016, SE Vietnam was more than happy to become the companions of University of Findlay’s students and professor as they joined us in Let’s Vietnam – a 3 week study and explore program across 4 cities in Northern Vietnam. Three weeks may not be enough time to fully explore and absorb a new culture of a country you have never been to, especially one half a globe away from yours. Nevertheless, it is more than enough to make us friends, to share meals and laughters, to stay side by side through all the ups and downs this trip has brought us and keep each other company. In such a short amount of time, we – your Vietnamese friends, were honored to meet with all of you and helped you integrate into the local life. We truly hope you have gained the most out of this journey to Vietnam, and have enjoyed your time being in Hanoi, Hoabinh, Halong and Sapa to the fullest. We cannot say it is a perfect trip, there are certainly things we wish we could have done better. But if there is one thing perfect about this program, it is the active participation of every amazing individual who helped make this journey a successful one.
Everyone at SE Vietnam office during their farewell ceremony
Thank you to all the lovely participants for being open to us, the local buddies and SE Vietnam staff for their hard work and the photographer for having captured the greatest moments Words cannot describe how appreciative we are for having everyone this year, to join us in this intensive-yet-full of experience study tour in Vietnam. Helping you immerse into our culture is also a way for us to embrace it more fully and we are wholeheartedly grateful for that.
“Doing a big trip like this will make you learn about yourself whether you realize it or not. Being in the culture that is so different from what you are used to will really make you think about the world as a whole. My favorite part was meeting new people and getting to know their background and future exciting plans. THANK YOU SO MUCH!” – Victoria Dusseau
Hope everyone have a safe trip back to the U.S. Bring with you the memories of the timeless capital Hanoi, the tranquil mountainous sight of Hoabinh, the dreamy city of Sapa and the wonderful natural heritage of Halong Bay.
Looking forward to seeing all of you again in Vietnam, soon!
