Get to Know MTĐ's Youth Leaders

Welcome to "Say Who??? Youth Leaders of the VEYM Mid-Atlantic Region"! This is a bi-monthly publication highlighting one MTĐ youth leader. In our last publication, we highlighted MTĐ's Energetic Youth Leader Tr. Maria Định Trâm Anh. This week, we are highlighting a special Youth Leader who was nominated because of his dedication and love he pours out to his Chapter, as a Don Bosconian put it:

Anh Giang sacrifices a lot of time and gives a lot effort to make Đoàn Don Bosco as best and as fun possible. He's not only there to make TNTT fun, but also to connect us closer to God. With every activity he does, he finds some way to connect us to God, by either giving us a lesson about God or the Bible. He is a great Youth Leader and role model for all the TNTTers here a Don Bosco.... drum-roll please...
