Our journey to Preah Vihear in Cambodia started with a bumpy road, which made me even more nervous, but everything changed once we got there.
A small, wounded leg is now able to run again after a long rehabilitation.
A small piece of paper is now drawn with a home and an imagined future.
A small body bearing physical inconvenience is now an outstanding student in the class.

When a lot of people share the same goal to make something work, although it’s never easy, the fruits of their hard work will always be sweet.
