Pros and Cons of moving to America as compared to Southeast Asia
Moving to the United States is a dream for many families living abroad, especially those living in third world countries. For most, United States holds the keys to a better future, higher living standard, and of course freedom. As a twenty year old, southeast Cambodian and was fortunate enough to move here, I would like to offer the advantages of living in the United States as compare to living in Cambodia.
Education
If you are to ask my parents why we moved here? They would say “Education”. In Cambodia the educational system is fragile and very much susceptible to corruption. What do I mean by corruption? Let just say $10,000 could indeed get you a graduate degree and thus make you certified to be a doctor. In contrast the education here, however, is very rigorous which leads to my new topic, opportunity.
Opportunity
Maybe I was a little harsh on the Cambodian school system. There are plenty of hard-working people that take school very seriously, but unfortunately these people are the ones who often found themselves without a job. Careers, as scarce as they are, are reserved for those who have money and/or relatives in the field. In the United States, spoil system does exist but not to such an extent that is shown by many third world countries. If you can suffer through college and get that degree along with a good GPA, your chances of getting a job increases significantly.
Security
The United States may be a young country but one aspect that sets it apart from others, is the fact that it is one of the safest countries in the world. Crime rates are going down, and currently at its lowest level. Cambodia on the other hand is in a state of chaos. According to the statistics taken by the United States government, 70% of the Cambodian population are under the age of 35 years old. This with the combination of poor educational system and as well as a lack of opportunity, creates a threat to
