Class of 2021
Guech is currently a sophomore at Beloit College, majoring in Environmental Biology. She has always been passionate and interested in learning about gardening and agriculture. She is one of the exec member in Beloit Urban Garden club, BUG and her role is to figure out what should be planted at the garden. This coming summer, Guech will be interning at Fauna in Focus, Siem Reap, an NGO that focuses on conservation of wildlife animals and biodiversity in Cambodia. She will be putting her skills to assist with the development of educational nature trail, model farm and tree nursery station. After her summer internship, Guech will be going to University of Otago, New Zealand for study abroad for a year. Before she joined SHE-CAN and came to the U.S, Guech was selected to study at Warsaw University of Life sciences, Poland for a semester. There she learned about the agriculture system in European countries and took courses relating to landscape architecture such as garden design and community garden as an event. She hopes to inspire other Cambodian women to take interest in the field of agriculture and wishes to use her experience not only by assisting Cambodian farmers to become more prosperous and advanced in their technique, but also in exploring sustainable agriculture.
