"5 years ago I participated in Apollo Summer camp with Apollo in Singapore. I had a lot of fun and it was my first experience when I could expose myself in the global community and had a better understanding about stories and culture of the international environment, which I have not known before.
That opportunity helps me know where I want to go and what I want to be in the future. Not only will I become somebody very helpful for the society but also for the whole generation of the global communities." - Vo Tuong An, Co-founder of Viet Youth Service Organization, Student of Stanford Law School - Stanford University
