BUV alumnus - 52 days of being Southeast Asia citizen

BUV alumnus - 52 days of being Southeast Asia citizen

Posted on: 03/03/2017

After becoming one of Vietnam’s 27 delegates in the Ship for Southeast Asia and Japanese Youth Programme (SSEAYP), Do Tuan Huy, who graduated from BUV’s Banking and Finance programme in 2016, has returned to Hanoi and achieved significant personal development. After nearly two months on the ship, stopping at 5 countries including Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia, Huy had the opportunity to meet and interact with more than 200 delegates from many countries. Huy experienced many interesting activities such as discussing prominent social issues in the world, homestays in the countries he visited, and meeting senior leaders of those countries too. Huy said: “The journey helped me realise and understand certain issues as they truly are, not as they appeared to be.  I reflected about myself in the context of a multi-cultural, multi-religious, and multi-lingual environment. I met delegates from 10 Southeast Asian countries and Japan, and we found the common ground in our different viewpoints“.

 

 

Huy added: “My journey involved a lot of ‘firsts’. Most of the activities and duties in the journey were my first time, from selection rounds to the journey’s ending. This made me feel more inspired to give my all, helped me feel more confident and really realise that if you do not try, you will never know“. The selection for SSEAYP 2017 is about to begin. Huy recalls his time during his application preparation, selection rounds, and interviews. He says he felt very happy to receive great support from BUV as well as feeling really lucky to be selected. In 2017, Huy hopes that many young people will apply. His advice is to “Try it. If selected, you will experience many new things. If not, you lose nothing.”
