Meet Mr. Bora Ream
My name is Bora Ream. I am a Cambodian person. I was born in Battambang in 1995. I have moved to live in Siem Reap since 2006 while studying in grade 6 and I started to study English since then.
My first English school was Australia Centre for Education (ACE), and I studied there for around 4 years. But it was not my parents who paid for the school fee, but my uncle, my father’s younger brother who owns a book shop. After 4 years, he told my family that he couldn’t support me anymore, so I had to stop studying from ACE and find another place to studied English. Then I could find one Organization which is called JWOC which was recommended by my eldest brother.
So I continued studying English there another 3 years for free and at the same time I also studied one-year-course at one university which is in Siem Reap. When I completed the course from JWOC, it was also the time that I graduated from my high school. At that time I didn’t have any goals in my mind, and when my parents asked me about that I would choose, I just told them that I didn’t know or have any plans yet.
Then my eldest brother asked me if I was interested in English language or not, and I said I did a little. Finally I chose English language to be my major. But still I didn’t know what I was going to do with my English language in the future.
When I was in year 2, I started to work a personal shopper and I worked for around 4 months and my organization stopped the personal shopper program. So I became a jobless person. I dreamed to be a teacher and now have the job at Feeding Dreams, teaching many poor children. I am the person who loves freedom and likes to spend time with people around me like my family or friends.
