"I Am, Because You Are", Hoang My Nguyen

The Rock Hill High School Valedictorian, Hoang My Nguyen, gave a message to all parents during his graduation day speech, I am, because you are. What a powerful comment in just a few words. Hoang came to this country in 4th grade, unable to understand English. It is a remarkable story of how he worked hard to become the best in his class. How could he accomplish this when so many, with a better understanding of the
English language could not even finish?
Certainly, Hoang must take most of the credit, but as he says, parents also play a huge part....and lets not forget the teachers who helped along the way. The video song below pretty well sums it up for teachers and parents.
