About Me: 

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.
