I am in the 7th grade and live in the Khdey Takoy village, a city outside of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  My favorite color is purple, and I like reading and helping my family.  I want to be a teacher when I grow up. My father works at welding.  My mother stays at home.  We live with my grandmother. My parents cannot pay for my brother and me to go to school.
