I can say that SC has been a good place for me to build my heart for education to assist my community. One thing I always think about is why do other nations come and help my people.? These gifts from their hearts push me to want to do more and more for my students.

SC has transformed and inspired me to use my love for teaching and education to make Cambodia and the world a better place.
