Anisha Dok
Senior, Harvard College

I believe in the Cambridge Cambodia School Project’s passion for helping provide equity in educational opportunities. As the daughter of a Cambodian refugee, I co-founded the Khmer Student Association at Harvard with my friend, Julie Ngauv, and I am so excited to join the team with her and learn more about the school, its students, and how we can best contribute our resources to the project.

Anna Catherine Grace
Junior, Suffolk University

I had the opportunity to spend 10 days in Cambodia with Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a family in need. During my time there in January 2020 I was able to spend a few days at the Cambridge Cambodia School. Getting to know the kids at the school allowed me to see the daily struggles they face and I’m excited to work with CambCamb to continue making a positive impact in Cambodia.

Natalie Marusiak
Junior, University of Toronto

Growing up in Singapore, I had several opportunities to visit Cambodia, including a trip where we spent time learning from and playing with at-risk kids. I’ve seen firsthand some of the difficulties these children must overcome, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to support the CambCamb kids by writing a grant for school supplies.

Julie Ngauv
Senior, Harvard College

As the daughter of two Cambodian refugees, advocating for and helping to improve the quality of life and education in Cambodia is something very dear to me. I co-founded the Khmer Student Association at Harvard, and through it hope to raise awareness about issues that Cambodians and Cambodian Americans face. I’m also planning to write my senior thesis on the under-documented experiences of rural and less-wealthy Cambodians during the Cambodian genocide in order to contribute to current scholarship from a perspective that is more familiar to me—that of my parents’ and the stories that they always told me while I was growing up.

Lily Schub
Senior, Cambridge Rindge & Latin High School

I was adopted from Cambodia at 11 months old and raised in Cambridge. For one of my birthdays I raised money for my orphanage in Cambodia and am happy to get more involved in helping the CambCamb school. I love music and dance and have worked as an assistant gymnastics coach.
