Hey what's up!
My name is Ngoc, also known as Pearl within the ETA4 community. I have been volunteering with ETA4 for about 5 years now and let me tell you something, it's the most awesome experience that one could ever have (and by "awesome", I don't mean "cool", it's literally awe inspiring). We are so lucky to be able to attract thousands of students and hundreds of volunteers over the last 8 years. After 5-week summer camps, you can really see the impact that the program has on the students. They all break out of their shells and become very confident individuals who are not only interested in learning a new language but more than that, they want to connect with the whole (wild) world. Seeing that happening truly motivates me to work harder and contribute more. I love what we do, I love the connections that we make, I love the communities that we share, and mostly importantly, I love that I can learn lessons that are even more precious than the ones we teach. Because of that, I will continue to walk with ETA4 for thousands of miles to come.
