Phoan, 21, blind student at Phnom Penh Thmey School
Before joining the special school, I did not know anything about computers. When I started learning about ICT , I quickly realized that the main challenge I would have to face would be the level of English required. I remember that I felt lost: I did not know how to touch the keyboard and I had never heard of the software that allows us to read the screen.

Today, I know how to use some keys on the keyboard (I do not remember all of them yet) and I can use Youtube! What I appreciate the most now is to use Internet, Facebook and Youtube, which are very useful to follow the news, search information and find relevant lessons to go further in my studies, especially writing scripts and composing poems / songs. During my free time, I use my mobile phone to train, mainly with Facebook and Messenger applications.
