“The day my grandson graduated from university, he asked a question that hurt my heart as a grandmother, I didn’t know how to answer it. I loved my grandson but I was helpless, Swallowing tears,” said Tien Giang, 73, of Mrs. Nguyen Thi Kim Hoa.
The grandson that Mrs. Hoa mentioned is Nguyen Phuong V (18 years old, new student of the Department of Industrial Management at Polytechnic University – Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City). Even though V has been away from home in Ho Chi Minh City for more than a month, Mrs. Hoa’s heart is still ached by his words on the day she received her university entrance exam results: “When they pass the university entrance exam People celebrate, why in our family?” Is everyone sad?”…
Mrs. Hoa said, “She saw the results of her university entrance examination and then informed the whole family. At that time, her grandmother, aunt and uncle were present, but everyone was sad. She also lost interest and cried.”
Phuong Vi had to live without a father or mother since childhood. To be more precise, both of her parents are there, but they are divorced, each of them has their own life, so V and her two sisters go to live with their grandmother.
Due to their grandmother’s concern about food, clothing and money, the childhood of both the sisters was spent in difficulties and hardships. Ms. Hoa said, “When our grandfather was still young, life was already difficult, but we still had food to survive. When our grandfather passed away, life was difficult all around.”
Then, like many other hard-to-reach families in the poor rural areas of Cho Gao District (Tien Giang Province), when Vi reached high school, Mrs. Hoa intended to let her work as a worker. But Vi insisted on going to school.
Knowing that she was deprived, he poured all his love into her. But the only thing she can do is send her grandson to college. Even to have a few million dong to pay the bus fare to Ho Chi Minh City to enroll her grandson in school, she had to run around and borrow from everywhere.
Even though no one supported her, new student Nguyen Phuong Vi found ways to convince her grandmother to enroll her.
Wei said, “Some time after finishing the exam and getting the passing result, no one in my family cared about me and advised me not to go to school, but I tried my best to persuade him.”
Although she had never left the village but wished to continue her studies, V searched online and learned about loans from the alumni association of the school where V planned to attend.
When her siblings agreed to lend her the entire tuition fees for the first semester, V borrowed some money from her grandmother to cover the cost of taking a bus to Ho Chi Minh City to pursue her dream. Asked to borrow.
When asked about her plans for the future, Wei smiled hesitantly and said: “I just hope to be healthy enough to work part-time and earn money to pay tuition to spend the next four years I can.”
The day they graduated from university, they were angry at each other for the first time
Similar to the situation of Nguyen Phuong Vi, the situation of Le Ngoc Hai Yen – a freshman majoring in history education at Ho Chi Minh City University of Education – also lost both of her parents at a young age.
Hai Yen, who grew up under the loving care of her grandparents in Go Kang Tai district of Tien Giang province, was well cared for as she did not get the support of her parents since childhood and was often ill.
“My family is poor, I have to work as a hired laborer every day, but whatever I like to eat, my grandfather tries to buy it for me. When I go to bring rice for hire or When I go to plow land for hire, if someone gives me a bottle of soft drink or candy, he always brings it to his granddaughter,” said Ms Do Thi Kim Tuyen, 70 – Hai Yen’s grandmother.
Not disappointing her grandparents, Hai Yen has been an excellent student for 11 consecutive years. Got good grades in 10th grade only one year. “That was the year my grandfather passed away. I felt as if I had lost a part of my body. I still remember the day I came home from school and saw people gathering in front of my house . I felt like something bad was going to happen. I felt like I was dying. I fainted on the spot,” Hai Yen recalled.
Hai Yen could not afford to go to school away from home, leaving her grandmother as her only close relative. But in a poor village, I don’t know what to do to support my grandmother when she grows old. Thinking so, Hai Yen decided to attend a university in Saigon.
“The day I passed the university entrance exam was the day my grandmother and I were angry at each other. It was the only time we were angry during the 18 years we lived with my grandfather. Because I had missed so much from school, I was determined to go away from home, and my grandmother couldn’t afford to let me go because of my health. I’m not sure,” Hai Yen said.
How can you rest assured when Hai Yen has many diseases and has to take medicine every day? Partly she’s worried about his health, and partly she doesn’t have the money to send him to school, so Mrs. Tuyen wants him to finish high school and then find an easier job closer to home. Take.
“But I don’t want my grandfather to always have to worry about me. I have to study to find a job, and then work to earn money to take care of my grandfather and my life. Besides, the young Since then, I was also interested in becoming a teacher,” Hai Yen said.
The two new students live dozens of kilometers apart but have one thing in common: they both grew up under the tutelage of their grandparents. And those two little girls do not let the difficulties and obstacles in life easily overwhelm them.
