“Through teaching, I brought them hope to leave the mountain and explore the world outside.”
“I’m Jessica Wong, and I am 16 years old. Although this is my second year going to VTC, I still find it exciting and interesting. This year, I was no longer a follower who needed other’s help, but a leader who could advise others. I still remember the moment when I stepped into the class. Forty pairs of eyes looked at me. Standing in front of the class, I shared my stories with the students, and they led me into the world of the mountains. Through teaching, I brought them hope to leave the mountain and explore the world outside. Seven days passed by quickly. Even though we only met for a week, it was hard to say goodbye. Our friendship has gone a step further within this one week.
Through VTC, I realized how lucky I am to receive so much love. The enthusiasm and smiles of the children in the mountains made me understand how I should work hard and never give up. Although it is the second year going up the mountain, I still saw a different world and a different environment. Once again, thank you so much to the children in Mingxing School. Every one of you changed me and inspired me. I believe one day, we will meet again, and I look forward to that day.” – Jessica, VTC2018
