Faculty of Economics, majoring in Marketing expressed that “It would be wonderful if my life has no challenge or obstacle, however I deny that wish for the reason that I can learn nothing meaninful or interesting in that circumstance”.

Like Thanh Van, another second-year student of the Markeing discipline who comes from the less-privilledged central land of Vietnam used to be inconfident due to her voice. It is said to be much sincere and a bit “countryside”, not appealling or standardized as the Northern Hanoi style or Saigonese. However, she would not let her passion and optimistic feelings be destroyed, Van has tried her best to practice, participate in many contests and has chosen the right mentor with her thinking “As you withdraw, you absolutely deny your hope, your dream, because your efforts will always bring great achievements”
“Don’t let your passion go, because your confidence is the great motivation to forge you ahead”, Ngan said.
With Phung Nguyen Ai My - freshman of the Marketing discipline, forgetting her barrier of age was the motivation that helped her back to school. “I was really anxious and confused when coming back to the university after having decided to quit job and make this reverse choice. But I talked to myself that this unsual decision would be my long-term prospect in the next 20 years. Then I would be booming and shining bright much more than my current status”, Ai My insisted.
Not being affected by the prejudure of the age gap, Ai My tries to be friendly in the crowd, promotes her potentials and the leadership ability. For Ai My, she suggests that “If you want to have the things you have not got yet, you need to try doing things which you have never done before” and “make sure that you are doing these things for your own life”.
