Be SMART and make good choices about doing your best and about how you behave and use the wonderful opportunities that you have at VAS Hanoi. Be STRONG and stick to what is right in every situation, treat everyone you meet with kindness, be a good friend, stand up against bullies and mean people. Be stronger than them.
