My real name is Do Thi Minh Thu. Do is my surname, what you call "last name". Thi is my middle name. My given name, what you call "first name" is Minh Thu. My family calls me Thu. It is hard to explain with words how to pronounce my name. You have to hear it if you don't speak Vietnamese. When you write my name, some of the letters are written a little different than they look in English. You can call me Cindy!
What advice do you
have for children around the world?
