MONTHLY REVIEW | AUGUST & SEPTEMBER
Phew! Was August and September tough for you? We have to admit that these two month were quite eventful times for us. We were sad to bid farewell to some of our most beloved students as their study tours or internship programs were coming to an end but we were also very excited to be welcoming amazing young people from all over the world coming to Vietnam. Some of them are incredibly talented, some extremely fun to be around, and others have amazingly inspiring stories to share.
