Khanh Au: Student of the Month

Khanh Au is the Adult Literacy Program’s Student of the Month for February. Khanh is in Class 2A, and he brings a lot of enthusiasm and humor to the class. Congratulations, Khanh!

Here’s a short video of Khanh talking about his life:

Here’s Khanh’s autobiography:

My name is Khanh. When I was young, I worked hard at a textile factory in Vietnam and then, Vietnam went to war. I joined the army, so I was a soldier until the war ended in 1975.

In 1999, I emigrated to the U.S. I have been in New York for over 12 years. I had to work hard for my family for 10 years. In 2009, I retired and now I have a chance to study English in this center. I feel I’m very happy. Now, I enjoy my life in New York. I watch TV every morning and enjoy my music and go swimming. So I feel my retired life is very very good!
