Kanitha Hor, Kid 12 Representative, was interviewed by Khmer Time
A few weeks ago, a video of a young student speaking during a graduation ceremony at the Aii Language Center went viral on Facebook. Many were amazed by how confident Hor Kanitha was in delivering an inspiring speech using the English language. While the ability of a student to speak English doesn’t come much of a shock, Kanitha’s delivery was different. Hers was an obvious product of hard work and diligence, of a kind of confidence rooted in her passion to communicate well. As of this writing, the video of Kanitha has already garnered more than 170,000 views, 3,600 shares and 5,900 likes on Facebook.
But, of the thousands of people who viewed and praised her video, how many know the struggles she has endured to become the fluent English speaker that she was in the viral clip?
