Many students who study have different goals. For example, some of the students want to get jobs, which follow their abilities, earn a lot of money, develop the country, or work as a volunteer. They think of the different ways about their jobs and their goals.
Before we go to all of these jobs, we sacrifice a lot of time, energy, other chances, and a lot of money, when we attend in the class to get the knowledge.
Some students, they have enough money to study outside of Cambodia. But it requires the student to have both money and high knowledge. So for many students, it is not possible to complete their study over there.
I am not so different from all of these students; also I have a dream to get a good job that uses my abilities and my knowledge. But I have another goal in my life from some of these students. My goal is unlikely, though: I want to have a scholarship to study in a different country because I think that I could change, learn, and share a lot of experiences with other people in the world.
Moreover, I might be a small part of the Cambodians who can help our country to become more developed or become stronger like the other countries. However, some groups of students when they have an opportunity to study abroad, they have learned a lot and understand what can make the county stronger. Some of these students work in the country that they have studied, but some students come back and use their knowledge to help Cambodia.
It is an unusual opinion, but I am really confident on my thinking. I have thought of this idea since I have seen more countries developing quickly and have strong economic, education, and many more services. It is not easy to get this opportunity because students have to be outstanding students or creative students. Still, I hope that this goal will become true one day in my life.
