Student Success Story

It’s with great joy that we announce Phung Bui as the FSAEC’s January Student Success Story!

Upon her arrival from Vietnam in July 2014, Phung wasted no time in enrolling in our center’s ESL classes. Her diligent study habits, passion for learning, perseverance, and belief that education is the key to a better life contributed to her rapid advancement to our Pre-GED classes. From there, it was just a short matter of time before she earned her GED and enrolled at UAFS. Now a dental hygiene major in her first semester, she is staying busy adjusting to the pace and demands of college life.

Phung’s former instructors and classmates at the AEC would be hard-pressed to describe her as anything other than an exemplary individual who brought her best to school every day. When asked to offer advice to newcomers, she suggests that persistence is essential in navigating the arduous early stages of adapting to the different language, customs, and educational systems that one encounters when moving to another country.

Phung, we are extremely proud of you and wish you the best in your future endeavors!
