As a child who grew up in poverty, I know how it feels to be poor. I aspire to help break the cycle of poverty by getting an education in the United States so that I can become an effective leader in my own country Cambodia.

My goal is to earn an Associate Degree at Montgomery College in Silver spring, MD. I plan to major in International Studies. To graduate in 2019, I need to raise $58,000. So far, I have reached the fundraising goals for my first three semesters at Montgomery College and I am now fundraising for the Fall 2019 semester.

Kindly note that I am also contributing %50 of my work study earning for a total of $12,897 through December 23, 2018.

Please read my story and college plan and donate to help me make my dream come true.

Thank you for your interest and support.
