My new Cambodian maid is a smart girl. She has gone to high school for several years but was forced to stop schooling due to financial constraints. According to our maid agent, the level of English that she speaks is considered very good for a poor farmer’s daughter like her. Most Cambodians from the rural areas are hard core poor and don’t speak a word of English but she speaks smattering English that’s mostly comprehensible. I told her yesterday that since she’s only 20 years old, she should work hard and save enough money to pursue a degree. If she can’t afford to go overseas, she can pursue a degree from online universities like Capella University, an accredited online university that offers 104 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 15 certificate programs. She can choose a subject that interests her, realize her dreams of being the first graduate in her family and set a brighter future for her and her family.
