Project for overseas Vietnamese students aims to fight discrimination

A project themed “My podcast – My story” is underway to spread positive energy and inspiration to society through the stories of overseas Vietnamese students who have suffered discrimination and bullying.

Each student will make a podcast of a maximum of 15 minutes long and send it to the organizer and a board of advisors for review and evaluation. If broadcasted, the student will receive a small bonus, and his/her podcast will be qualified for the next rounds. The admission of the podcasts lasts until May 22, 2023. Further information on the project is published on kenhviethappy.com.
