I am just an ordinary young woman from Cambodia. I was born in middle-class family. During the last five years, my life was like a roller coaster. I and my family was in a very great depression because my precious mother was diagnosed cancer. I found out that my mother got cancer when I was sixteen, and she passed away last year when I was twenty one. Those five years, however, have taught me a lot about life. At first, I hated my life so much because I couldn't deal with the reality. I kept asking question: "Why cancer chose my mother?" "Why my family?" Of course, I couldn't get the answers. I finally stopped asking and fighting with these challenges. I tried to view my family problem from different perspective and opened up my mind. I found out that my family situation is tough, but there are many lives out there encountering tougher situations than mine.
I am currently a Cambodia promotion volunteer of Erasmus Mundus Association-Southeast Asia Chapter. I work to promote the scholarship program provided by the association because the program in my region is still lack of application. I volunteer to do this because I know there are many Cambodia youths out there eager to get this kind of scholarship. Not everyone can afford to pursue their education abroad, including me. I hope what I can contribute in the program can help spread the new and expand the opportunity for Cambodian youths to follow their dreams. Let my voice be heard. International Relations
My Vision for the Future
Better world with abundant and powerful women's voices
