The Gift

Synopsis: My name is Rin Veasna, I was born in Svay Rieng province, Cambodia. I grow up in a small village and it was not easy for my family, as it was very challenging because we were very poor. It was difficult to get education and food. When I was 18 years old, I found Sao Sary Foundation and they were able to support me with accommodation and education. I learnt many skills to get a job and now 10 years later I have a successful job as General Manager. I owe my life to Sao Sary Foundation and I can now support my family in my home village.

    Lesson: doesn’t matter the circumstances surrounding your birth and upbringing, what matters is how you tackle the challenges life brings your way. With hard work, persistence and dedication, you can achieve a lot.

    Life is full of challenges but we as humans have the power to get whatever result we want to see out of any situation we find ourselves in.

    Never give up, stay strong 💪🏽
