On her work as a education program coordinator for This Life Cambodia:

I really like my job, because it is where I come from. because, I [found] it really hard to get my education.

From: Cambodia
Age: 32

BACKGROUND

“I remember when I was in Grade 9, my family was really struggling… no support to do farming during harvesting seasons. Because I am the oldest sister in the family… I have to stop from school for around a month… I feel like I had no chance to continue my study”.

WHAT MAKES HER SMILE

“What really makes me smile is when I wake up in the morning and I see what is on for my day… to work with communities who are really [passionate about] education in their community…especially when I see the old people, they’re talking and discussing about how they can help the students to study better. That really makes me smile”.
