    We think that Tan Le is extremely generous because she not like others that want money so they help the poor, because she work for the poor and help the poor of by heart! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Tan Le is a great example of a compassionate person because she gave back to people. Tan Le wanted peace and she wanted to help the people who lived like her, the people who were refugees. She won the young Australian of the year award because she acted like Christ wants us to. It was a very big risk for Tan Le because she came to Australia and she didn’t have the same intelligence of language like the others.

    We think that Tan Le is very inspirational to the young kids in Australia. She tried to fit into a new situation and she succeeded by helping others like her in her community. She became the Australian of the year in 1998 by showing compassion and empathy.
