Meet Minh, a 12th grade student at UNIS Hanoi who is proudly neurodivergent. He displays his talents as a guest writer for the school newspaper. One of Minh’s internship pathways this year is co-teaching 10th-grade PE. Minh showed incredible leadership and work ethic leading him to be offered the new assistant basketball coach this season. Minh’s coaching responsibilities included organizing the game stats, prepping for practices, assisting the coaches at the games, and cheering on the team for the whole season. Not only has the basketball team won games, but they have also shown what being an inclusive school really looks like. When the crowd was cheering on the UNIS basketball team, they were also cheering for inclusion! Minh and his team have learned a lot of valuable skills in leadership and communication. Minh shared “Inclusion for me is to include everyone to be a part of the team even when we are on and off the court.”
Congratulations to Hoang Minh Duong as May’s SENIA World Changer Award Winner!
