Hello, I am Soknang, I am 23 years old and this is my story.
I stayed at Anjali House for 6 years, between 2009 and 2015. During these years, I discovered what I wanted to do with my life thanks to them because they offered sports classes and competitions. I immediately enjoyed sports, so after Anjali House, I went to Battambang to study for two years with the Salt Academy organization. I had sports lessons but also general studies in a Khmer school.
Now, I am finishing my third year of study in a Khmer school while studying sport in a Government Sports Club at the same time. When I graduate, I’ll apply to be a sports teacher in a government school.
I also coach sport at Anjali House since 2016, because I want to support them and participate in the life of the organization. Moreover, children love sport like me!
I like sport, especially soccer and volley ball, because it helps me to be healthy. It improves my thinking skills because it requires me to think quickly about a strategy during the game. It also allowed me to make new friends and travel for competitions.
If I can give advice for children who want to work in sport, it is necessary to train a lot and play with the heart.
Finally, I would like to thank Anjali House for guiding me to find my way through life and allowing me to succeed in what I love to do. I would also like to thank my family who accept my choice of life and let me live what I want.
Today, I am happy and grateful, I have reached my goal and my dream.
