A friend told me: "If you live in the world without passionate about then it is pointless." I also ask myself: "What is my passion, right?". Do not know your passion is, but he is a man of passion and connections grows. As a child, I have a special passion for math. The spare time, or bored whenever I pulled out school math, because that's where my math is always highest class, I'm glad of that. Growing up, you decide choose a career to nurture and make passionate about, then I chose the electricity sector because it is my passion. Every time I have a passion, if someone asked me my current passion is, then I will not attend, but said "my passion is volunteering."

A lot of people wonder why I have such passion, to answer this question I would like to share with you the story that made a passionate me.I was a student in the University of Electric Power, has participate in volunteer work for 2 years. Take all regions of Vietnam beloved country, every place I have memories of their own. Most land Thao - Sa Pa gave me the impression of hard-ethnic people, ethnic unity of ethnic people and ethnic Hmong Ray ... But leave me more impressive than that is the life of the ethnic Hmong in Ta Number, Chieng Hac, Moc Chau, Son La.

Road to Ta number of extremely difficult and dangerous than 2km beyond glide path climbing the hill, I was overwhelmed by the lives of the people here. Stay away from Moc Chau town center, where the letters to the people is much more difficult to improve the quality of the service life. Take the first round, I felt incredibly sad because I was standing in one of the poorest in Vietnam. Electricity, schools, stations, but no phone reception, there is not much water. Through researching, I learned that they have to go every hour water can get to the source of living water. I still remember the words of her teacher elementary school principal Ta Number: "Water in pools of water that is just eating, just drinking water, water for both personal activities of the students in the school." I was shocked. Really it is extremely dirty water. Water is stored in one tank and placed outdoors, about 1 meter high where everyone can be reached at. I was silent for a moment. But that is not all that I saw.

Heaven much rain that day, people look to test different scenes rainwater poured into the tank, the container is something that can have mobilized all. And I just hope that the rain as long as possible, so that people in the restaurant did not have to go miles to get water on the next day. Rain stopped and after that, I secretly wish: "Every day in the rain and Number 1 Ta's time to give them interested enough water then stopped also." The story I wrote up above my passion, and it was here gave me an idea to implement a volunteer project to bring water to poor people in mountainous areas.

To do that, I have participated in the contest "Water Summer 2014" with project "Building a system recovery, processing and storage of rain water for drinking water Number of people Ta", and my project has won the first prize then we will be investing to perform their volunteer projects. Passionate volunteer gave me the confidence, the power to convince investors that the organizers to bring clean water to people in mountainous areas. Passionate volunteers will never die in me, hopefully one day I will have plenty of volunteer projects to help needy children around the country Vietnam.
