The Author

Thavry Thon has received her bachelor degree from the University of Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic with a major in Information Management. She was born and raised in a very simple farming family on a remote small island on the Bassac River in Cambodia. Her family always supported her and valued education very much. They encouraged her to pursue higher education in the hope of having a better future. Her parents always told her that ‘education’ is the key to success and will reduce poverty in Cambodia.
