What is your most memorable NON-teaching moment at E2? PG version, please.
It’s really hard to pick one. Hmmmm may be I will never forget my last birthday party at D2. It’s the first time I decorated and prepared for my own birthday, shouted out “It’s my birthday” with my co-workers who happily contributed their time, energy and creativity to celebrate mine and other’s birthdays although Summer has been dragging almost all of our minds.
What are you most looking forward to or optimistic about when it comes to your own future at E2 or E2’s future in general?
E2 will provide more food every Fri!! (Just kidding). All the cultures and right visions are protected and E2 will definitely become bigger and bigger in size.
Bonus Question: If you had to be stuck on a desert island with 1 member of E2 staff (teaching or operations team) who would it be? Why?
Chị Nhan (mandy). She’s strong, humorous, creative and noisy enough to make me have motivation to get out of that desert as soon as possible to protect my ears =))))
