The top student from the Dao Tuyen ethnic group has been awarded a full scholarship at CMC University

Dang Thi Nga, a student from the Dao Tuyen ethnic group, has become the top student in the C00 group, securing a full scholarship for the Digital Marketing program at CMC University with a total score of 29.25.

Dang Thi Nga was born and raised in Na Phat village, Phuc Khanh commune, Bao Yen district, Lao Cai province. Growing up in a farming family in a northern mountainous district, the Dao Tuyen ethnic girl always carries the determination to learn and overcome difficult circumstances.

The motivation to strive in my studies comes from my parents.

– Congratulations on becoming the top student in the C00 group at CMC University and receiving a full scholarship. Could you please share your secrets to success during your high school years?

– I am fortunate compared to other peers in the village as I had the opportunity to study at the provincial Boarding Ethnic High School in Lao Cai. This is a high-quality educational institution with excellent, dedicated, and enthusiastic teachers.

Due to the nature of the boarding school environment that requires self-reliance, in addition to the scheduled classes taught by teachers, self-study plays a crucial role. During self-study hours, I allocate time for each subject reasonably, exchange ideas with friends in the same and different classes about unclear issues. Moreover, I also study with online lectures provided by teachers on various websites.

And, of course, one essential aspect is to pay attention during class, complete assignments before class, and fulfill all assigned tasks. These are some study strategies I have applied throughout my high school years.

– As a small girl growing up amidst mountains and forests, facing challenging learning conditions, what motivation drove you to persist continuously to achieve the accomplishments you have today?

– The greatest motivation comes from my parents. Seeing the smiles on my parents’ faces when I achieve many accomplishments brings happiness. From childhood until now and in the future, my parents will always be the motivation for me to strive not only in my academic path but also in my career.

Another motivation that drives me to strive in my studies is myself. I always want to become a better version of myself.

Joy of receiving a full scholarship

– How did you feel when you received the 100% tuition Liberal scholarship from CMC University?

– When I received the 100% scholarship from CMC, I was truly surprised. I shared my joy and happiness with my parents, sister, friends, and everyone around me. But alongside the joy, I also had a bit of concern about whether I had the ability to maintain the scholarship throughout my studies. That concern has become the motivation for me to strive and sustain the scholarship I have earned.

– Coming from a remote mountainous district to enroll in Hanoi, can you share the difficulties you have faced after becoming a freshman?

– Transitioning from Lao Cai to Hanoi for my studies, I faced certain challenges such as the distant location, unfamiliar streets, being away from friends, coupled with the fact that my family’s financial situation is not well-off. My parents had to support two older siblings in university and a younger one, which added some pressure. However, I believe that within challenges lie opportunities.

The pressure from my parents has opened up better opportunities for me—to step out of my comfort zone and strive on the chosen path, achieving even greater success. All my efforts are not just for personal development but also to alleviate the burdens on my parents.

– Nga, could you share some of your impressions about the university you chose to accompany you throughout your college years?

– Before enrolling, I received advice from the admissions office and gathered information about the university, but I still couldn’t help but be surprised on the first day stepping into the lecture halls of CMC University. The university boasts modern facilities, a friendly and professional team of faculty, lecturers, and staff. I believe I made the right choice, and this is an excellent environment to fully immerse myself in the college experience.
