Age:  14 years old

Date of Birth: September 18, 2006

I am in the 9th grade and I live in the Khdey Tako village outside of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  My favorite color is pink, and I like to read, listen to music, and help my mother do housework.  When I grow up, I want to become a teacher. My father works on the water system and my mother stays at home.  I live with my parents, and my three sisters.  My father works hard to support our family, but it is not enough to pay for our food and for use to go to school.
