Hi, my name is Nguyen Tran Gia Hop (call me Katherine if you want) and I am a final-year university student in Vietnam.
I have applied to the six-day program called Lead The Change 2019 in Singapore held by Lead The Change Community - a global community for the youth and startups - from 18th to 23rd November 2019.
This amazing opportunity is designed for the young generation who are passionate about making the impact to the social and seek a better understanding of the ASEAN region.
You can find the information about the program here and videos about the previous exchange in July to understand why I deeply interested in.
Unfortunately, the program is fully self-funded and I cannot afford it. The needed budget is an approximate amount of 45,000,00 VND = 2,000 USD which included flight tickets, training cost and documents, transportation, accommodation, and daily meals in Singapore.
I will publicity he total expenses after the exchange to all the funders via email.
If any money is still left, it will be donated to Sasa Team Marine Animals Rescue - an NGO in the Centre of Vietnam.
Throughout my university life, I've been trying my best both in academic and extra-curriculum activities:
- As a President of Organizing Committee at AIESEC in FTU Hanoi branch, Vietnam, I have supported nearly 100 volunteers to finish their global exchanges to foreign countries and Vietna as well
- Receive Merit scholarship for students with high marks in the high-school graduation exams from British University Vietnam
- Become Winner of Academic Merit Award for Autumn Semester 2018 at my university
- Become TOP 10 National Finalists of ASEAN Data Science Explorers Contest organized by the ASEAN Foundation and SAP Asia Pte Ltd.
I believe that this advanced study program and training will support me, as a young lady, to achieve new competencies and skills to be a better version of myself and go the extra mile.
I thank you for taking the time out of your day to look at this and I also thank all those who have encouraged me to go for this amazing opportunity.
Once again, Thank you so much for your support!
