Bravo, Phung!

This post is for Phung: the 14-year old Vietnamese girl who gets up at 3 a.m. so she can go to school. But why 3 a.m? Because she has to cook, clean, ready her siblings for school and cycle one and a half hours to get the education, which, she believes will get her the job her family so desperately needs. She wants to be an accountant. But I hope and believe she will be much more…

Phung is the kind of leader the world needs: sets her sights clear, and attainably near; and works determinedly at all it takes to get there.

Read about Phung at Nicholas Kristof’s column in the New York Times… click on link below.
