SmartEdu Scholar (2017 Cohort)
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Royal University of Phnom Penh

Growing up in a fishing village in Siem Reap, I could have never believed that I would be able to pursue a higher education in Phnom Penh. Obtaining a place in the SmartEdu Scholarship Program is a tremendous accomplishment for me and a source of great pride to my family.

The financial support from the scholarship program has enabled me to continue my university studies and obtain knowledge as well as invaluable experiences for my future. I also managed to do social work with Smart Axiata such as planting trees, teaching children to read and sharing experiences with other students. Being chosen to be a SmartEdu scholar has led me to aspire to obtain high grades at university, become one of the best scholars as well as develop into a role model to my community and general society.
