Pham Van Cuong
Cuong is a 22 years old boy who came from Muong, an ethnic group in Vietnam. His family is living in Ngoc Lac – one of the poor mountainous districts in Thanh Hoa province. His family is under preferential treatment.

Cuong’s father passed away when he started senior high school. He lives with mother and his elder brother, who have to work very hard with limited earnings. When he finished senior high school, he did not go on studying but go to Binh Duong (a very far province in south of Vietnam) to work for nearly 3 years due to family circumstance. 

Cuong always dreams of becoming a good famous chef, and he can open his own restaurant in the future. But He cannot find a chance to chase his dream in such a case. Then he heard about the YCI program accidentally through an article on facebook. Immediately, he left Binh Duond, went to Hanoi to apply for Cooking class in YCI program. And he got the chance to work as a trainee at Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel.

“I’m always hard working and eager to learn through advises from my hotel trainers and REACH teachers. I always remind myself to try to make my dream come true.” He said “Through six months studying, I changed myself so much. From a person, who don’t have any experience in cooking, now I know how to hold a knife, prepare some food and I’m more confident in communication. And I shall have a job to make my way to the world”

He said that this program helped him to develop himself, and then gave him opportunity to take care and support his family better.

Now Cuong is continuing to chase his dream by applying for stable and high standard working environment to study and develop his skills.
