“My sister attended Career Academy of Cosmetology (CAC)  and she loved it! The teachers really help you to learn everything you need to get hired in a salon and have a successful career. I love the atmosphere here, the teachers don’t tell you that you can’t do something, they let you experiment and I’m learning new things every day.”

Mashauna T.

Mashauna left high school to care for an ill mother with breast cancer and other family members. She said, “My motivation (for going to Adult School) was to just try to better myself as well as getting guardianship of my nephew so he can have a good life and future.  Having a diploma also looked better on my resume and on job applications. I would like to thank my boyfriend and our families for all the encouragement and motivation that they gave me."

Buth Family

Buth Family

"The late 1970's was a time of great upheaval in Cambodia. The Khmer Rouge was in power having been taken control after a devastating civil war. They attempted to turn Cambodia into a classless society by depopulating cities and forcing the urban population into agricultural communes. The entire population was forced to become farmers in labor camps. During their four years in power, the Khmer Rouge overworked and starved the population, at the same time executing selected groups and killing many others for even minor breaches of rules."
