Unsurprisingly, the appreciative post for the girl’s energy was praised by the online community. Many people also share articles on their personal page considering it as inspiration. The author of the article is Ho Thi Kim Trang (20 years old), a 12th grade student at Hai Ba Trung High School (Thua Thien Hue).
Blind girls learn what to do!
While meeting Trang at a coffee shop in Hue City on the first day of August, her friend appeared with a tall stature and a thick voice with a Hue accent. In contrast to the picture from the previous flex post on the social network, in real life Trang looks more alert and alive.
Trang was born in Phu Vang District to a farming family. Trang was diagnosed with eye cancer at the age of 2. That surgery cost the family almost all of their hard-earned money and was said to be a success when the malignant tumor was removed in time, without any metastases, but Trang completely lost sight in both eyes.
At the age of 8, Trang started first grade and always won the hearts of her teachers because of her bright, agile and smart face. During her elementary school years, she always did well and studied well, but at the same time, her family forced Trang to drop out of school for the reason: “Daughter, blind eyes learn a lot, it will help someone in the future.” Will not help”. It was sad, but Trang was too young at the time to fight that decision.
Trang followed in her mother’s footsteps by selling lottery tickets in Hue city to earn a living. Then one day Trang had the privilege of meeting a distant relative. It was her aunt who convinced her family to let Trang go to school. When her parents agreed, Trang was overjoyed and did not forget to promise to be good. So she was sent to a public school in Hue City, returning to the 5th grade when she was about 13 years old.
Time to get back on life’s “race track”
Trang compares being able to get into sixth grade in a public school, in which only I am a blind student, is the moment to help me “get back in the race for life”. Although she had to study entirely in Braille for the blind, in 2018 Trang won first prize at the provincial level and was the only student in Thua Thien Hue province to win the 47th International Lettering Competition for Children.
Then in 2020 and 2021 also Trang has retained the prize in this competition. The special thing is that students with disabilities won prizes in a nationwide competition, which attracts lakhs of students from across the country to participate every year. And Trang is one of those rare students.
In the 10th grade, Trang was directly admitted to Hai Ba Trung High School in Hue City, he was also the only blind student in the entire 10th grade to enter the school at that time. “Coming back to school, then being commended for winning the UPU letter-writing competition helped me clearly feel the meaning of life, it was also a source of inspiration and light that made me strive and study more Helped me to be determined. Up,” Trang said with a smile.
Learning with healthy people is sometimes difficult, Trang always has to mull over every step and read every word, so getting those results won’t be easy.
The girl has grown up enough to feel the difference between herself and her peers. Needless to mention, Trang’s high school is quite far from where Trang is staying while he is away from home, and also going to the Vocational Education Center for Blind Children (under the Thua Thien Hue Province Blind Association) It is quite far away, and commuting is a problem. Many people were heard asking “Where is the money to drive motorcycle taxis every day?”.
In the center, Trang is probably the one most eyed towards the observer’s room. There are many reasons for this, partly because the girl wants to talk to and get support from teachers when she needs it. Also, by visiting the supervisor’s office, Trang found out a lot of information about scholarship funds available for the blind and then made an application.
“There was one year when I got a scholarship, and then a classmate often stopped by to take me to school, so the scholarship money was not used. So I still had two children to take care of with my mother. had the balance to send, I felt happy and proud”, said Trang.
