Among the best graduates were many underprivileged students who overcame hardship and difficulties to excel in their study and win prizes at international academic competitions. They were offered a chance to write their names in the Temple of Literature’s traditional golden book.
Speaking at the ceremony held at the Temple of Literature, the first university in Vietnam, Secretary of the Hanoi Youth Union Nguyen Thi Nga said the event, the 11th of its kind in the capital city, aimed to encourage local students to enrich their knowledge and make further contributions to national development.
Over the past decade, more than 1,200 outstanding graduates have been presented with certificates of merits by the Hanoi People’s Committee. Many of them have been employed by State organizations and companies in Hanoi, recording excellent achievements in their work.
Pham Thị Thu Hien, one of the honoured students from the Hanoi-based National University, said this is her initial success and she aims to achieve better outcomes for the future.
Hien revealed a plan to pursue further study in Seoul, the Republic of Korea, following a scholarship programme. “I want to study at the new energy faculty of the RoK University of Science and Technology. After three years studying in the RoK, I wish to come back to Vietnam to work and make a practical contribution to my homeland,” she confided.
