Chan Rendaly

dalyHello, my name is Chan Randaly. I am 17 years old, and I am a first-year student studying Law at the Royal University of Law and Economics. I was born in Svay Reing province, I have 2 siblings and I am the oldest. My mother is a housewife, but she used to work in a factory but had to stop because of Covid-19 and her condition of health. My father is a farmer and also a Vietnamese translator. My brother is a student too, as he is younger than me by only 2 years.

In life, you learn from bad things that you cannot forget. I am very afraid of that. My father and my mother had a big conflict and my mother said she wanted to get divorced from my father. My little, bity brother and I were so worried. At that time, we felt a lot of pressure because my mom wanted us to choose one of them to live with. Many days later, by seeing the effect on my siblings and myself, my father and my mother became closer. After that, my family is living with happiness, the sound of laughing again. Furthermore, I would like to tell you about the good thing that my mom said that is very important to my life. She said, “Dear my darling, please always be kind, helpful, patient, friendly, and honest to people around you kid, so you won’t be alone.”

Currently, I am a volunteer for Advanced Centre for Empowerment (ACE). It’s great for me because I Picture1had never done it before, but after working with ACE I have learned a lot. I volunteer as an English teacher and I hear my students call me teacher everyday. Furthermore, I have the opportunity to work with the community and I have joined many activities. We have done community clean-ups, health checks, porridge for hope, teaching, food drives and more. All of these activities are my new challenges in my life. Moreover, I also have the opportunity to help the struggling children in the community by giving them an education which will play an important role in their future. We can imagine that maybe they will be a CEO, doctor, teacher, lawyer… in the future. Their education can be the light and protect them from the dark world. “It’s the key to open the beautiful world”.

DALYYYLast but not least, I feel so very comfy by what ACE has given me. ACE is my second home and second family as the people who are living here always take care of me and teach me a lot. They teach me how to cook, how to solve and face problems, and many life-skills as well. I sincerely thank the Advanced Centre for Empowerment for giving me this valuable scholarship and everything. Thanks for giving me a chance to be a part of society.
