After living 18 years of my life in Cambodia, I am now based in New York City where I attend Columbia University. My upbringing in Southeast Asia has exposed me to the harsh realities of poverty and political instability. Additionally, as a woman, I am particularly considerate of the burdens that women bear in the context of such social turmoil. At Columbia, I plan to major in Sustainable Development with a special concentration in Human Rights.
