The brighter side of life as a Cambodian student

Dear Editor,
I thoroughly enjoyed your last education supplement. As an educator, it is encouraging to see positive news about Cambodia, which is still bruised and a little confused about what direction to take and how to adequately manage priorities in meeting the country’s needs.

The interview by Jet Ordrerir was exceptional because it shed light on a young and innocent-minded Cambodian student’s first glimpse of life, education and culture in a developed country such as America, as opposed to perceptions based on Hollywood movies. I highly encourage future articles about the positive changes in Cambodia, rather than all the negative aspects of this country.
