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 immediate goal is to earn an Associate Degree in General Studies at Montgomery College in Silver Spring, MD. I plan to graduate in December 2019 and have raise $51,300. which it will cover all my education costs for attending Montgomery College. Kindly note that I have been contributing 50% of my work study earnings for a total of $17,567.

After graduating from Montgomery College, I am hoping to be admitted to a 4-years college in the U.S. to earn a Bachelor Degree. Since I will only be applying to colleges in the Fall and have not yet been admitted, I am suspending request for donations for my college education until my future plans are firmed up. I will not fail to inform you as soon as a decision is reached and if I still need additional financial support to complete to Bachelor program, I will reactivate my donation page and hope to be able to count on your renewed support as I strive to reach my education dream.

Please read my story and college plan.

Thank you for your interest and support.

Journal #4 in Political Ideologies Course.

Feminism is my favorite topic in this class. The history of feminism fascinates me because I am one of the many Cambodian women who grew up following the strict cultural rules that expected women to be proper and submissive in our male-lead society.
