2023 Student Ambassadors

K2K: Kid to kid 

Many thanks to all Boston area students fundraising to help our Cambodian students.

All the middle school students at our Sister School in Lowell, Mass:

The Katherine P. Stoklosa School


Eliza Tse
Senior, St. Paul’s School, NH 

Education empowers individuals to break the cycle of poverty, allowing for bright futures to be forged. This is a cause I truly believe in and am thrilled to be a part of. My plan is to study epidemiology in college. I love to travel and hope to visit the school in 2024!

Katherine Diamond 
Junior, St. Paul’s School, NH

We live in a world that affords so much to some and so little to others. My goal is to help bridge that gap by engaging in communities of all different backgrounds. My pursuits in service have transformed by understanding of the world outside of my bubble of privilege. I have had several opportunities to expand my interest in service. A project I took part in this summer working with families in Fiji to construct a new community center and refurbish their school. I am excited to be a part of this project and assist in offering education to the children of Cambodia. 

Mona Elabdeia 
Junior, St. Paul’s School, NH

I believe that the opportunity to be educated is a right, not a privilege. For this reason, I feel genuinely passionate about making education accessible for youth. I am thrilled to support the CambCamb kids as I know that education has lasting generational and individual impacts. 

Kira Hartness
Sophomore, The New School/Parsons Paris, NYC/Paris

One of the first things that attracted me to join the Cambridge Cambodia school project, was their goal to bring free education to the youth of Cambodia, and to discover the many ways I can help make an impact. It is so important to support the education of all children around the world, I believe that everyone should have access to an education, no matter your socio-economical status, gender or where you live.

Charlotte Machiels
Junior, St. Paul’s School, NH

Since 7th grade, I have been working to address educational inequality and to support students in low-income schools through working at various early childhood Head Start programs. I worked for two years at a Head Start program in NYC and have continued to work with children in rural and underserved communities in a variety of capacities since that time. Last summer, I worked at International Peace Initiatives in Kenya, Africa, and learned about peacebuilding, community empowerment, and the power that education plays in disrupting systemic inequalities. I am eager to continue my commitment to addressing educational inequality by not only supporting The Cambridge Cambodia School Project’s fundraising efforts, but also working to educate the St. Paul’s community about the critical role that education plays in breaking cycles of poverty and disrupting systemic disparities.

Rhys Rountree
Junior, St. Paul’s School, NH

It can be easy to lose sight of the privilege at our disposal in America. For one, it’s important to remember that access to education is not guaranteed for those in less fortunate situations. I am passionate about both raising awareness on this topic and contributing in any way that I can to CambCamb’s mission. I am thrilled to be able to create lasting opportunities through free high tech education for students in Cambodia.
