August Monthly Email From Heng

Hi Aviv, Michelle and Jess,

I trust you are doing well. You may know that my grandma and brother got infected with Covid-19 at the beginning of August 2021. Now we are all at home and they have recovered from it. First of all, I would love to share with you my experiences during my family's problems. This was such an experience that I was strong and scared at the same time. My family could face many challenges that affect their physical and mental health. There was nothing I could do besides I stand by my family, especially my grandma. It was ridiculous as well when the doctors allowed people to take care of Covid-19 patients, so I could be there with my grandma even though I was negative Covid-19. From the 2nd of August 2021, I was at the hospital seeing patients dying and there was always someone passing away every day at the hospital building. I was so scared and I thought I might get infected as well sooner or later. I tried my best to protect myself, every time with alcohol, and wear a mask all the time. Every little thing I touched, I sprayed alcohol and went a little outside the building to eat rice. The people in the building were not allowed to go outside the hospital. So if we needed something, we asked outsiders or friends to buy or bring those to the front building, leave things there and we took it after they went back. On 11th August 2021, my grandma took the second test, and waited until 15th, when they said my grandma recovered, and we could go home, but they needed to test me to find the Covid-19 again after 15 days at the hospital. So I tested NEGATIVE Covid-19 again. Wow- I was so happy that we could go home together. Lesson learned- I experienced the worst things and good things at the same time. However, I appreciate where life took me to and I still fought as long as I could, and all I can ever do is do my BEST. I took full responsibilities at schools and NGO work and advised the members in Project G as we stayed home. I have missed the first online workshop in Project G as I needed to be quarantined at home for another 2 weeks. So I joined an online workshop from home, while other team members were in Project G’s room at the office. My team did a great job for our first online workshop. I am so proud of them and they are a really great team. 66 rural girl students joined us and received our lesson and meaningful words to them while we all are in the pandemic. We need to keep fighting and stay patient until everything gets back to normal, moreover, we believe they received the empowering lesson for their health, body, and mind. So they confidently love themselves and take care of their health as women during this pandemic and every time. We completed our first three workshops this month. 193 students joined us this month :) I am truly proud of what I am doing and our team is doing as, during this difficult time, we still have some meaningful things to do, to share with other people, and make such an impact on other students in rural areas. Not only in the Project G team, but also all CRST's students, live our lives in the right way during this time and we work so hard individually, and as a team to help and share with other people and fulfill our education every day. I can say this 100 times, that I am proud of being a CRST student. Both physical and mental support from CRST, Aviv, Michelle, Jess, and Palti’s family as well as all volunteers who joined our CRST’s family. Back to my studying at school both PUC and ACE. I enjoy studying four subjects this term, however, there are 3 subjects with calculations. :-D It is a bit challenging for me but I do my best with those subjects. For the ACE class, I moved up to level 9B and my previous class was 9A, and I got a good score with 79 out of 100 marks. Well done me! Haha For this level 9B, there are so many interesting things to learn with Professor Kevin. I did every homework, got involved in the class. So I enjoy the class so much. Last, I am thankful for your mental and physical support. I wish you all the best and stay healthy. ❤🙏💪👏 All the best, Heng
