When he was alone in the cabin, Vutha read the English-Khmer translation of "Golden Words" sent by the church every day in order to practice English, which was one of the few English-language publications he could get for free. These inscriptions are like a brand, engraved on his values, self-expectations, and work attitude. Vutha works hard to run his own tutor network. He knows that the expansion of the network comes from word of mouth, word of mouth comes from the quality of teaching, and more importantly: the character of teachers.
The tutor network established on this basis is not so much a Image Manipulation Service livelihood as a circle of friends, which has long exceeded the scope of exchange. His fourth Khmer tutor was an Australian and Chinese married couple who lived in Cambodia for a long time. Their parents, because they admired Vutha's self-motivation, even funded him to study at university. From an English student to an English teacher, from an English teacher to a Cambodian teacher, from a worker's son to an international organization translator, language is the way Vutha builds a social network and leads to a different world. Language first brings about mutual understanding and learning of different cultures, and then on top of this common value, it expands the possibility of interpersonal networks, including life support and job introduction.
This value also influences the choice of majors and careers. Vutha said that he likes to work in helping people, and he hopes that his work will bring about greater social change. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in public administration, Vutha continued to study for a master's degree with the aid of an American scholarship. After completing the credits in the first year, he had already confirmed his research concern and selected the thesis topic and supervisor early.
