The Cardinal

Diem Mi Le
January 18th, the last day Diem Mi Le will ever step foot in Canfield High School.

Canfield High student Diem Mi Le is finishing her classes early to travel across the world to revisit her home country of Vietnam. Le is originally from Saigon, Vietnam; before moving to the United States at age seven.

She spoke of her adjustments to moving to a new country, “Vietnam is so different from the United States.” She touched on learning a new language as well, “I learned a little English over there, but I also learned a lot here because I got to practice through talking to people everyday,” Le recalled.

For her first time back to Vietnam, she plans on leaving in January, but is unsure on the length of her stay. “I don’t know how long I’m going to be there, it will depend on if I like it there or not,” she stated.

While there, she has big plans, “Vietnam is actually a very unique country, you can visit mountains and beaches, and there is a lot of great food and just a lot of things to do in general.” she explained.

In addition to visiting all of the exciting aspects Vietnam has to offer, Le will also be visiting her family, who still lives there. “I actually have a lot of family members over there, my grandma still lives there as well.” said Le.

This trip took planning and thought, since she will be leaving halfway through her senior year. “I will be graduating before my trip, so I will have already finished all the classes I need by the time I leave.” Le clarified. She also stated that she was unsure if she will be back for the graduation ceremony or not.

Le concluded with, “It’s been 10 years, so I’m really excited to go back to Vietnam, I think it will be a great experience.”
