Connecting Across the World

We are very proud of the manager of our craft shop today.  She conducted a skype interview to an audience of around 700 Hunterhouse College students.  Srey Rohm only completed one year of school.  She suffered from polio at the age of five and her parents were unable to afford to take her to hospital.  Her legs were severely damaged by the illness and she was unable to walk from that time onwards.

Despite her lack of education, she conducted a 6 minute interview in English with the Belfast girls.  She was very nervous but spoke eloquently and, I think, won them over with her beautiful smile.  Thank you Srey Rohm.
