On behalf of one of TGC ex-student feeling so impressed to what it has been sacrificed to devote everything to help those who were in poverty circumstances. TGC has provided me a lot by providing me the best educations, the best experience of life, and has a strong motivation to encourage orphans and impoverished people in Cambodia to have a better future.

Be a Hero!

I traveled to Cambodia in 2010 as a recipient of the Minerva Fellowship from Union College, and I left the US with the intention of spending 9 months volunteering at the Global Child teaching English. In reality, those 9 months were some of the most transformative of my life, and I learned just as much as I taught. The family that makes up the Global Child, including its educators, students, staff, founders, and supporters, are some of the most kind, welcoming, and generous individuals I have ever met. They granted me the creative freedom to bring my ideas to fruition and teach not only English, but also math, science, piano, and art classes to our students. My co-fellow and I developed and implemented a Student Council- the first that the school had ever had, bringing an understanding of the constructs of student government to the school. We bonded with our students outside the classroom through coaching their soccer team, craft nights, game nights, reading and cooking together. We taught each other about our cultures, families, friends, and values. We celebrated holidays, birthdays, and achievements together, and leaned on and supported each other through challenges and losses. The Global Child family holds such a special place in my heart. The experience transcended those 9 months and continues to shape the person that I am today.

I volunteered at The Global Child from 2017-2018. Unlike most Minerva Fellows sent to Cambodia, I have had the unique opportunity to teach these amazing students a second time, which has helped me realize how important a good teacher is. The fellowship taught me that a teacher not only has the power to distribute knowledge, but to inspire. I am fortunate enough to have found early on in my life an itch I just can’t scratch, which is design and storytelling. I think my fellowship has taught me that I do have the unique ability to inspire others, and this has become a main focus of mine as I navigate this strange thing we all call life.
