“My parents are rice farmers and in my country it is usual for children to follow in the footsteps of their parents...But I was determined to work and study hard and make a better opportunity for myself and my family. I have had amazing opportunities with CRST and I am looking forward to sharing stories of myself and the NGO on my trip to the US. I’m also very excited about learning so much new information to bring back to Cambodia to share with my community and other students.” Nak says.
