Before joining SHE-CAN, Aidy Ung was a second-year college student majoring in architectural engineering at Zaman University in Cambodia. She graduated from Preah Sisowath High School in 2015 with exceptionally high marks on the Cambodian National Exam. Aidy has been very successful in scientific subjects, such as mathematics, physics and chemistry. During her time in high school, she was selected to be a participant in the Jenesys 2.0 Exchange Program after a tough essay writing and interview process. This program was an eye-opening experience to her, as she acquired a greater understanding about developed countries like Japan. Her experience with Jenesys 2.0 was also an important opportunity to exchange culture, tradition, social and environmental issues among participants from various countries. Aidy also received first place in the ASEAN youth competition and traveled to Singapore and Malaysia for city study tour. She came to appreciate how tourism and tourist attractions in these countries generated important income and served to benefit a country’s national budget. This idea inspired Aidy and reinforced her passion in becoming an engineer. Aidy is currently a freshman at Lafayette College, where she studies Civil Engineering. She is passionate about helping underprivileged families to live in better conditions and working to improve their standards of living. Aidy wants to make Cambodia a better place by contributing to improving the country’s infrastructure.
