Meet Somphos

Meet Somphos 7

What have you been doing for part-time work?

I’ve been working as a Teacher Assistant at Asian Hope International School for two years.

What is your plan for when you finish university this year?

I am now thinking about what kind of job I want to do. My qualification is broad, so I can work in many different areas. All I know right now is that I want to work in an organisation that helps people and has the same values as Awareness Cambodia.

What do you like to do for fun?

I don’t have much time for fun, as I am busy with study and work. When I do have time I enjoy spending time with friends, watching movies and reading.

What music do you like?

Romantic songs (English and Khmer), rock ‘n’ roll, Chris Brown, Hillsong and Selina Gomez.

What is the best thing about living at Graduation House?

Sharing a room with my sister (Sophi), watching TV and our very comfortable sofa!

 What is it like sharing a room with Sophi?

I love it! She cleans a lot – more than me! We have a bit of fighting – normal sister stuff, but not very much – we mostly get along well.

What are some favourite memories of growing up at Sunshine House with Awareness Cambodia?

The first time we walked to school was special, climbing trees, always with my friends, growing flowers in the garden, walking to the village and being taught how to cook and clean [she admits she didn’t appreciate learning to cook and clean until later].
