17-year-old radio presenter from Vietnam: 'I was trying to fit in'

Nguyen Phuong Anh, a 17-year-old from Hanoi, is known as 'Crystal', because of a medical condition that means her bones break easily. Since the age of eight she has been presenting a children's show on the national radio station - The Voice of Vietnam.

Chosen by UNICEF as their Youth Ambassador, she believes that, given the right opportunities, people with disabilities can do a lot to make their dreams come true.

Video produced by BBC Vietnamese's Ha Mi.
