Age 17

My place of birth is Chroy Chang Va, Phom Penh. I have two brothers and one sister – my father died when I was young. My mother couldn’t support me so she brought me to the orphanage. I have now lived here for over 10 years. I have a better life here – I have enough to eat and the opportunity to study. I am also happy that I have good friends who give me advice. Today I am 17 and I need to find a job. I would like to work as photographer or as an electrician to support myself.
