Tay Thi – Graduate of the Year

This world is full of inspiring stories; about people born in absolute poverty and reached high levels in life with hard work and determination. Tay Thi from Vietnam is one such girl, who fought everyday of her life to get education.

“Three times Tay Thi has fainted while here at college, training to become an English teacher, because she starved herself to afford tuition. But she had the strength to persist and soon will become the first person in her village to graduate from college, and she embodies such grit and selflessness that, to me, she’s the world’s college graduate of the year”

You can read her story in Kristof’s NYT column – Graduate of the Year
