Chhin So Phy

Chhin So Phy is 15 years old, a student in 9th grade at The Yoon Soon Jung School, located in Toul Sdey village, Toul Sdey commune, Chantrea district and Svay Rieng province.

Chhin Sophy has five siblings, two sisters and two brothers. She is the fourth child in family. Her family has feed three buffalos and own one hectare of farmland where they can produce rice to eat during a year, but still not enough to eat they need to buy extra more rice to support the family needs. Beside the rice season, her parents try to make a small business as the vegetable reseller in the local market that they can earn about 30,000 riels by day. The whole incomes are not enough for the need of family daily life, so it is very hard for her parents to give the full support to the cost of her school supplies.

Chhin Sophy is a good student always obeys the discipline. In the free time she is often helping to do hourly labor work as much as she can do to earn the extra money to help her family.

In the future, she wants to be a banker and she will help support her family in a better living.
