Hiens Story of Transformation

Women's Artwork in Vietnam

At 22 years old, Hien joined Hagar's first personal development training group in 2009.  In her first session, she tried to paint for the first time.  Frustrated, she threw the painting brush to show the facilitator that she could not do it.  She was very shy and had low confidence in herself.  She rarely spoke in front of the group.  After three sessions, she felt safer and started to share more.  The other women in the group always listened when she spoke because it was always with deep meaning. 

After she completed the personal development and job readiness training, she attended a room service training course for six months. Upon graduation from vocational training, Hagar established an internship for her at the Sofitel Plaza.  After her internship, Hagar helped her secure a full time position at a five star hotel.  She is one of the extraordinary examples for transformation.

In 2011, Hagar will transform the lives of 50 women like Hien.
