Hi, my name is Chap Pisal, I was born in Siem Reap and I grew up in poverty. My family were poor, but they always made me feel loved. The biggest thing is they never stopped trying their best to support me to reach my goals.
After I graduated from high school in 2016, I decided to go to work in order to pay for my university and gain some experience. I worked as a receptionist for 2 years. Then in 2019, I challenged myself further by applying for a new job as an English teacher's assistant whilst also studying my degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
I also volunteered as a Teacher of English in the Community of Distance learning (CDL) in order to give scholarships to students across Cambodia and to improve their English skill through digital technologies. I like helping people in my community; it makes me feel happy.
Many of the children living around my village come from poor families and can’t afford to get an education at school at all. So, my dream is to become an educator who would provide knowledge to those children for free. I believe that there is always a solution to a problem, that is why I want to be a part of the solution which brings more educated people to my community for sustainable development.
