My name is BORIN, and I’m 21 years old. I was born in Sotr Nikom district, Siem Reap province. My parents are Farmers; they spend most of their time working on the farm. There are six members of my family my grandma, parents, brother, sister, and I. I am the second child of three siblings; due to living in poor conditions, my brother and my sister decided to drop out of their education. My first brother stopped in grade 8, and my sister stopped in grade 7, only me that stand a chance to study at the University. My family is struggling financially, they want to see me in better education and get a well-paid job. Thus, I promised myself I never make them hopeless.
In 2018, Is the years that I failed my national examination for the first time. However; my parents are still by my side, and encourage me to keep going no matter what. The following year is the year that I have to retake my examination, I tried my best and passed in 2019.
From 2020 to the present, I started studying for my undergraduate in majoring of Teaching English as Foreign Language (TEFL) at the University of South-East Asia, I am in year III. There are so many challenges during my study at the University, but it does not matter make me backward and give up. I always encourage myself to stay strong, either long or soon, I will gain what I want.
The reason why I decided to work at REACH is that REACH is not only an NGO school, REACH is where helps impoverished kids to stand a chance to study and their families to stay in a better situation. I am so thrilled to be working with the REACH team. Besides that, when I work at REACH, I have filled one of my goals is to help the young generation escape from illiteracy, although I have known I would face a lot of extreme challenges. In the future, I want to be a good professional English teacher, to help everyone leaving from illiteracy and poverty as much as I can.
