Meet an extraordinary human being: My Huong Le
Travelling provides opportunities. Through travel, we get to experience some amazing new places, learn about different cultures, try new foods and attempt to communicate in other languages.
But one of my favourite aspects of travelling is the people you meet.
During my travels through Vietnam in 2015, thanks to an Australian friend, I met Le Thi My Huong who lives in Vung Tau – 90 minutes outside of Saigon. We spent a day together. My Huong as she is affectionately known is an adoptee – from Operation Baby Lift – who has drawn strength from her past experiences to create a future for others they could never have dreamt of without her help.
Her story is truly inspiring. It is one based on human courage, determination, kindness, returning from adversity and giving back.
