Singer Wannabe

Posted: May 16, 2007 in Children, SVA

If you ask Cambodia countryside kids “what do you want to do when you grow up?” I am certain that about 90 percent of their answers would be “a teacher” or “a doctor”. It seems that these are the only occupations that come up to their minds, when you hit them the question. It is what I have learnt after visiting score of primary schools in remote areas. Yet, surprisingly one day a girl bravely raised her hand when the students in the class were asked this very same question and answered clearly with her loud pitched voice that “I want to be a signer.” I was moved just to hear that answer. She even sang us a beautiful pop song as our request. I was really impressed with her braveness and talents. I hope this little girl, who does not only get the most enchanted face but the best grade in the class, will live up to her dream and one day can make it come true.
