One of the SKY 2011 youth delegate, Ngo Nguyen Khanh Uyen, has this to say, "Well, I love every single thing about SKY 2011 programme in Singapore, everything is memorable. It is one of the most memorable transition in my life. It not only helped me expand my knowledge but also brings me many new lovely friends despite language and culture barrier. I have experienced and witnessed many interesting things. Thank you so much for the warm welcome from Eunos CC YEC members, especially your enthusiasm. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much :) ♥"

Says another youth delegate, Lâm Thị Thanh Trúc, "Being able to be on my own and having had to do things by myself may be the best things I've learnt from this trip. Knowing more about your country through the homestay programme helped a lot to widen my knowledge and being a Singaporean for a day was very interesting. Thank you very much for organizing a nice trip for all of us :D"

The SKY 2011 English Summer Camp was also featured in Vietnam media.
