At the function, Hoai Anh was presented with a congratulatory letter of the Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, a certificate of merit from the Chairman of the People’s Committee, and an award from the provincial Department of Education and Training.

Hoai Anh, whose parents work at Apatit Vietnam Company, is the first student in Lao Cai to receive a full scholarship from one the the world’s most prestigious universities. She competed with 44,000 nominees to become one of the 2,000 scholarship-winners this year.

She was one of the five Vietnamese representatives to attend the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) in the US, in 2015, and among the four Vietnamese representatives at the Southeast Asian Education Dialogue in China. She has also won several prizes in national academic English contests.

Apart from exceling in academics, Hoai Anh has been actively participating in social activities. She was the founder of a project that encouraged use of paper bags to protect the environment, and a project on providing warm cloths to poor children in mountainous areas.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
