Phuoc comes from a very poor family.  His dad passed away when he was still a young child, leaving his mom to raise 3 kids on her own.  With only a small parcel of land, enough to grow only 5 bags of rice each year, his mom has to work as a labourer to supplement their income.  The many years of physical labour has left his mom with severe arthritis, and no longer able to work.  He feels fortunate to be able to stay in school to pursue a better life for his family, while his siblings are working as labourers to support the family.  Even with a part time job  he struggles to pay for his school and living expenses.

Phuoc describes the people from his village as very kind, always help those in need, and have a strong sense of community.

Phuoc says he loves to help his friends, learns from people, and works hard in school.  He also enjoys playing volleyball, reading, and participating in student clubs.  He’d like to come back to his village to help improve their situation, and to help young kids who are in similar situations.  To the younger generation, Phuoc advises them to work hard and never give up for a brighter future.
