Teach Your Children Well by Danielle Frederick, SFTL Contributing Writer and Advisor

Although she began teaching English, many more topics filtered into her teaching. Miriam and her teaching partner Sam began a program that brought in female, Khmer professionals working as accountants or in ad agencies among other businesses. After her months in Cambodia, Mimi’s students expanded their future goals from becoming tour guides and hotel consigners to aiming to be businesswomen. Mimi brought her students local sources of inspiration that will guide her students as they grow. Before leaving, Mimi painted a mural at a restaurant in Siem Reap, leaving a lasting mark that will remind the girls of Mimi’s leadership and enable them to find and project their own strength.
