Since I left Krousar Thmey school, there is plenty of things that I have to undertake by myself. For instance, I cannot benefit from boarding anymore, thus I had to move in some friends ‘apartment in the city in order to decrease rent fee. My parents are farmers and are not able to support me financially. This is the reason why my older brother never could study at university; he had to find a job at a young age. Luckily, Krousar Thmey still supports me during my first year of college. When I enrolled at university, I received a computer – very useful for information search or assignments – and I also get a monthly allowance of $50. It does help me a lot, but of course it is not enough to meet all my needs. Therefore, I needed to find a day job. As I am low vision, I only found temporary jobs so far.
