Pham Thi Yen Nhi, a second-year student at Dong A University, majoring in the English Language and Culture, had received a full scholarship for the academic year 2021-2022.
Yen Nhi is the daughter of Le Thi Hong Tam, who had selflessly braved the rough seas of Quang Ngai to save children’s lives. After her heroic deeds, Tam suffered from severe trauma from head injuries and mental health issues which rendered her unable to feed her family. The 44-year-old hero now lives in Quang Ngai city with her family of five, of which two children are still in school and are entirely reliant on the meagre earnings of their father’s empty repair shop.
