My name is Chhai, Yep! like the tea. I was born and raised in Cambodia. I moved to Montezuma (NM) in 2012 to attend an international high school. Upon completion of the International Baccalaureate diploma, I received a scholarship to study at Lewis & Clark College in 2014. My experience growing up in Cambodia motivated me to pursue a B.A. in Economics, with areas of interest in development and health economics.

I am also interested in photography, cooking, motorcycle road trip and writings. I have traveled to a few countries-including Thailand by motorcycle- and captured some nice pictures. (Check ’em out. They’re in my Portfolio up there). I became interested in food and learned to make a lot of food when I went to college. I usually make food out of my imaginary, but hey! they taste good. (pictures in my portfolio). Last but not least, I love to read novels during free time. Matter of fact, it inspired me to write my first novel “The faded star” (more in my blog).
