(Excerpt from the World & Vietnam Newspaper - under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
April 30th is going to come again, round 46 years of the complete liberation of the South to unify the country, in the warm weather of the season, I had an appointment with a young teacher, with a lofty, gentle and hidden beauty a great aura…a aura that is a little bit unique…a traditional woman’s graceful beauty, both the dignity of the teacher, and the transient/wide-open of a Entrepreneur, the right temperament of a business leader in the “new normal” era.
The beginning of the story is a very simple, gentle way of telling the story of a young teacher with a gentle and humble bow that I think if anyone has first contact with Ms. Truong Nguyen Dieu Anh – Director of Phuoc Tue Training and Education Development Joint Stock Company, he/she also loves and adores her.
Journalist: Dear Teacher, I have heard about Phuoc Tue English Center – a subsidiary of Phuoc Tue Training and Education Development Joint Stock Company founded by her and has been teaching in person for more than 10 years. Which led you to the Career?
Teacher Dieu Anh: Yes, dear Journalist, I am fortunate to have been born and raised from a family with a revolutionary tradition and a proud tradition of Education. Today, sitting here and interviewing with you, on the occasion of the great national holiday, I would like to give my deep gratitude to the Heroes, fallen soldiers and families with meritorious services Revolution. My Grandpa and Grandma were also people with meritorious services to the Revolution, being awarded the Medals of Resistance by the State, First and Second Class Resistance Medals and My father received the Third Class Resistance Medal. My parents are honest and virtuous Teachers who have dedicated themselves to the Education Cause of the country for nearly 40 years, and have received many certificates of merit from the Prime Minister, the Minister of Education and the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor awarded.
I majored in Foreign Trade Economics from Foreign Trade University, then study to Master of Business Administration and also worked through many positions in Communication, Media, Human Resources and Foreign Affairs… but it was really a predestination to bring, “Job choosing people” and perhaps that is also the blessing of the parents left… I have returned to Education Career – Noble Career and full of humanity.
But what I have gone through, the path I have chosen, I always appreciate all… because thanks to my years of experience in the economic environment, Human Resource Management, External Relations and Media, I have shaped the direction to go for yourself and have a very different mindset when forming and building a harmonious educational environment between the good aspects of traditional and modern education.
|The results of the Center’students over the years at the International English Certificate exams of Cambridge University have all achieved 100% of the examinations’ excellent scores, of which 85% passed absolute scores in all 4 skills, along with golden achievements from academic results in elementary, secondary, and high school programs; Excellent results at the entrance high school examination and valedictorian of English classes at secondary schools for many years are students from Phuoc Tue English Center|
Journalist:The name of the Center sounds strange and I personally find it very meaningful. Can you explain the meaning of the name Phuoc Tue?
Teacher Dieu Anh: I am a person who follows the viewpoint of both tradition and modernity, but deep down in my heart I understand very well what remains in each person’s heart most deeply is always “human love with each other”, and even if you follow any religion, the Law of Cause and Effect is always present and real.
The name Phuoc Tue is really the name that in the period when the Center was a small establishment, everyone thought it was a bit Buddhistic, that thought was also correct, but actually my family named the Company “Phuoc Tue” because the desire to bring to the young generation is not only Wisdom, a solid knowledge foundation, but the most solid luggage in life is the righteous personality which is suitable for the human heart, suitable with social standards and deeper, I also hope to change the thinking of the young generation through a humane educational environment, shaped by benevolent thinking, respectful above and below, filial piety with Grandparents, Parents, harmony with siblings in the family; know how to love and be willing to help people around, know how to expand compassion to the less fortunate life than you…..In this way, our merit and wisdom will be stable and shine.
Journalist: What such a meaningful name !
Teacher Dieu Anh: Thank you, journalist. (Teacher nods, smiles again, which is in the teacher’s standard manner 🙂 )
Journalist:Now I understand why Teacher Ms. Dieu Anh has received so much love and respect from Parents and students… J Through research, I have heard that recently you have focused on a sizable Charity and Education Project for the Community. Can you share some details about the Project so that people all over the country can get more information?
Teacher Dieu Anh: Thank you very much for your attention. Dear students’Parents and students from all over Vietnam, Korea and friends around the world. With an open and compassionate heart since I was a child…..I soon cried, felt heartbreaking when I witnessed in life there are many unhappy lives, which are much less fortunate than we are…..
I often say to my students “Never mind where you are from, who are you? No one has the right to choose where we were born in this life…nor does anyone have the right to laugh at each other for their origins… We are all better than each other by the words “luck”, “willpower” and “Courage” in this life… If life does not give you the luck of being born in silk velvet, do not be sad because of that… But consider it as the motivation to increase “will”, strongly overcome fate, towards a better horizon and a broader future….. As long as you have the will, effort, strength to rise up in life…plus talent, intelligence and improvement, good personality training…all of you will definitely succeed and find truly lasting happiness in life… ”
It is from such a clear life point of view that I maintain an educational environment with outstanding quality but low tuition fees, only receive by month… to create conditions for all families, everyone can give Children learn English for a long time …..
The Center also has a lot of benefits and scholars for poor and studious students. For mothers who just gave birth to their babies, the children who are studying at the Center will receive a 50% discount on tuition fees for 6 months; In addition, at the end of each semester or at the end of the school year, the Center also organizes Awards Ceremony to award International English Certificates to the students as well as to reward all students of the Center as an encouragement and motivating them after a hard-working year…..
Read more “Policies at the Center (applied from 2011 to present) and some new policies (applied from 2021 onwards)”
And the blessing destiny came…..when I happened to watch the Videos about the charity activities of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugee’s Goodwill Ambassador – Mr. Jung Woo Sung, I was really touched…… and sympathized with his heart…..
I always respect Jung Woo Sung hyung and admire his determination to rise up. With his talent, strong will, standard living personality and a holy heart, he succeeded…. Success in the midst of many difficulties is something we cherish and respect for him even more…..And I love and respect him even more when he reached the pinnacle of his career with a high social position, a strong position in the field of Art…..he knew how to open his compassion with so many unfortunate lives, with cruel fates….the most vulnerable people….the people that even the word “homeland” they cannot name…. That’s why I respect him so much…..
So we decided to set up JWSA Education and Charity Project with his name as a tribute to his great heart, his dedication to the refugee community over the past 7 years…..
Read more “Contributions to the community & society by UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Jung Woo Sung” , “The charity journey of Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees – Ambassador Jung Woo Sung”, “The deeply enthusiastic heart of the Founders of the JWSA Education and Charity Foundation”, “Language of the heart”, “PROUD ART CONTRIBUTIONS OF Producers – Writers – Famous Veteran Actors – Goodwill Ambassador JUNG WOO SUNG” “FOR A WORLD OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY”
And our JWSA Charity and Education Project is a Project that is truly dedicated to the community. English learning materials system is completely free for everyone from Children to Adults.
Our Mobile App system not only provides a large amount of knowledge from hundreds of textbooks for all levels from the elementary framework – the first level frame (PreA1) to the advanced level frame – the 6th level framework (Advanced), has been designed and updated continuously based on the precious curriculum from Cambridge University Teacher Association’s own teaching materials system, together with the system of Lecture Videos and self-study method instruction, according to Monitoring progress, student management, report and reminder are fully automatic, designed by myself, and designed and technically perfected by the Company’s software engineer team of MONA MEDIA Software Company.
I sincerely thank all of you for accompanying us throughout the project implementation.
Especially, the system from Website, Administration Web to Mobile App are designed in all 3 languages English-Vietnamese-Korean to support not only our Vietnamese and Korean homeland, but we also wish to support all international friends, poor children and the refugee community….. support them somewhat in accessing knowledge, continuing to pursue knowledge paths….. in the midst of COVID 19 as today.
Journalist: Thank you for your useful information. Before finishing the interview, I would like to ask Ms. Dieu Anh a question about Enterprise, when I can feel that you not only has the courtesy and standards of being a Teacher but also “open-minded temperament” of a Businesswoman. In your opinion, Businessmen in general and Businesswomen in particular, what qualities do businessmen need so as to be able to develop sucessfully in the current “new normal” period?
Teacher Dieu Anh: Thank you for very good and very practical question. Personally, I think for Entrepreneurs in general and Businesswomen in particular, to develop in any period, especially the current “new normal” period, Entrepreneurs always need to have “the Mind and Heart” and “Vision”. “The Mind and Heart” is essential to be able to treat people in the most sensible way, is to take care of the life of the Company’s employees as best as possible of the owner of the Business. “Vision” is to have a truly distant vision, not only the Foresight of the strategic direction for the Company but also the Insight of the social changes, the Insight when understanding the hearts of everyone around, especially its associates, partners in the work of the Enterprise and the heart of many miserable lives in society. Having an open Heart and such a deep and profound Vision, Entrepreneurs will not only drive their businesses to develop but also “Sustainable Development”, not only “Good” but also so “Great”, not only to “survive” but to “endure forever”, not only to develop the current generation but to always train the young generation to continue in the future.
Journalist: What a wonderful interview, Teacher. Thank you for this meaningful interview. I wish you will always be an ideal role model for not only her students but also an inspiration for future young generations. We wish you and your family good health and your Education and Charity Project will develop a great success, resonate far away with friends around the world.
Teacher Dieu Anh: Thank you very much, Journalist. On this occasion, I would like to extend my gratitude to the Heroes, the sacrificed soldiers, the veterans who lived, fought and sacrificed for the Independence of our Vietnamese people. I also extend my deep gratitude to the Vietnamese State and Party for taking care of the Vietnamese people, whether in peacetime or the COVID era; My deep gratitude goes to my Parents, who made so many sacrifices for my educational career; I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Korean Ambassador of Goodwill, Mr. Jung Woo Sung – who has always encouraged me, followed me and gave directions for me in every step of the Project implementation; I would like to thank all my associates and Ekip for joining me in implementing this Project; and best wishes to all our dear students’Parents and students, Vietnamese-Korean people and friends around the world.
