I am a 2nd generation Cambodian-American educator and mentor who looks to provide access to social, academic, and mental wellness to my community.

Bettering my mental health and wellness has played a large role in how I mentor and support those around me.

I encourage healthy practices and value the importance of approaching balance in all aspects.

With my background growing up as a child of refugees living in a low-income city of diverse peoples, I recognize the lack of resources youth encounter and want to fill in those gaps.
