Ngọc Ngân is 18 years old and attends 12th grade at her school in Vietnam.

She loves to enter drawing competitions, and her mom’s sacrifice and support have made it possible for her to pursue her dreams of becoming an artist. “I love the creative process when I draw,” she says. “I can bring my imagination to life through pictures.”
