From shoeshine boy to TEDx speaker – what a journey it has been for Vi, the Crisis Care Coordinator in Blue Dragon! During the recent TEDx talk, Vi recalled his days on the street. He touched on what it means to be a street kid, and why he decided to give up a successful career in hospitality to help other street kids today. He talked about the challenges of getting kids away from danger, from paedophile rings, and the courage it takes to face a gang of men ready to beat him up. Vi’s own life is a demonstration that when someone cares, a child’s future can be turned around. There is hope when there is the will and courage to make a difference.
Blue Dragon will post a recording of his talk when it becomes available. So please like and follow Blue Dragon’s Facebook page!
