Tay ethnic Doan Gia Han was the sole representative from Dak Lak at a ceremony honoring outstanding ethnic minority students and young individuals in Hanoi last October. The 12th grader at Nguyen Du High School for the Gifted was awarded first prize in an English Olympic Contest at the provincial level and a second prize at the national level. She was also a member of the National Excellent Students team in Biology.

As a key member of the provincial English Club, Han voluntarily taught English to primary and secondary school students over the summer. She also took part in the youth exchange program between Dak Lak province and the South Korean province of Jeollabuk and volunteered for the “Jaipur Foot Camp Vietnam – India” project at the Central Highlands Hospital.

 "I will continue to overcome my weaknesses to achieve better results. My goal is to become a scientist specializing in biotechnology and biomedical engineering,” said Han.

Y Un Diem, a third-year student at the English Education Faculty at Tay Nguyen University, is a remarkable example of overcoming challenges on her educational journey.

Coming from a financially disadvantaged family in Dak Ba village, Kon Tum province, Diem had to work in Ho Chi Minh City after high school to save money before pursuing her dream of higher education.

After three years of hard work, the Trieng ethnic girl has finally become a student at Tay Nguyen University. Teachers and friends describe Diem as dynamic, creative, and confident. She earned the title of “Student of 5 merits” at the provincial level and serves as a member of the Secretariat of the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Dak Lak province. Diem is currently working on a project that she plans to implement in her village soon.

“The project ‘Bring English to the Village’ aims to provide English language lessons in disadvantaged areas. After completing my studies, I intend to return to my hometown to assist my friends,” she said.

Dak Lak currently has more than 170,000 ethnic minority students studying at high school, college and university levels. The province has instituted many policies and mechanisms to support and encourage these young people to excel in their studies.

“Throughout my studies, I consistently benefited from the support of Government policies. This assistance allowed me to concentrate better on my education and practical learning. I want to expand my knowledge to contribute to society and my community,” said H Phuong Hoa , who studies at the English Education  Faculty at Tay Nguyen University.

H Giang Nie, Secretary of the Youth Union and President of the Vietnamese Students’ Association of Dak Lak province, said, "We encourage young people to actively participate in Union and Association activities, emphasizing the vital role of ethnic minority students and youth in preserving national cultural identity and engaging in digital transformation.”
