Featured Student: Le Thi Mery

Growing up in the Quang Tri region of Vietnam, 14-year-old Le Thi Mery has been met with hardship with the loss of her mother and father.
Left with her two older brothers, Mery is a diligent student in school although she is visually impaired. Mery is excellent in English and music, maintaining a bright smile and positive outlook as she enters the 8th grade. She has participated in music competitions and won a number of awards. Mery's persistence in finding passion and hope in her life in spite of the many obstacles put before her, physically and emotionally. Her future aspirations include attending college and studying English.
