My Personal Life
General Idea about life: People throughout the world have different lifestyles. Living standard is so dramatically different from country to country. It means that the way of living is not really similar in comparison. Some people are living in a very poor situation while other people are living in a good situation or in a privileged family.
To begin with, I would like to brief my personal biography. Sophyra Sokhan, my official name, was given by my parents. My full name combines with both my father’s surname and my mother’s given name. I was born on May 11, 1994. I grew up in Phnom Penh City, which is the capital city of Cambodia. In my family, I have two younger sisters, and they are now in one of the public colleges in Cambodia.
Both of my parents are working in the Ministry of Education. My mother is currently working as a kindergarten teacher in a public school. And my father is working just like my mother’s occupation. Besides working as a teacher, my parents also own a huge agriculture field located in the suburb. There, we grow the variety of fruit trees, banana tree; mango trees; and many kinds of vegetables. Furthermore, we also have a large enough house as our accommodation with a couple of bedrooms.
