Hi guys! My name is Duffy and I’m 10 years old. I’m from Can Tho city, in the southwest of Vietnam. Today, I will tell you a little bit about Ao Dai.

Ao Dai is a type of clothing, usually worn on special occasions, such as the first day of the week in Tet, or a meaningful national ceremony. Most of the wearers of Ao Dai are women. It was uncommon for men to wear Ao Dai but that doesn’t stop many men from wearing Ao Dai on traditional holidays for our tradition of wearing Ao Dai. One of the males is me, so that’s why I have a lot of sweet memories with my beautiful Ao Dai. I am going to tell you about it.

My first time wearing Ao Dai doesn’t mean a lot to me, since I was super small back then. But when I was in first grade, I wore Ao Dai again, and that time, it was very meaningful to me, because that was the time that I remember I wore Ao Dai. Also, at that time, I had to present my grade’s Tet camp to everyone. It was a success and my Ao Dai helped to that success. I was very proud and happy in my Ao Dai But at that time, I didn’t love Ao Dai because I never understood it. I just think it is normal cloth. But since joining the project 2life Ao Dai, I understand its values and have come to love Ao Dai.
