Porthira Chimm::14 Ok, I am Porthira Chimm and I was a New Voices fellow at Cambdian Community Development where I ran a project called the Cambodian American Project for Empowerment. And I actually met Andrew through my work there. He had come in to :30 do volunteer with our agency to do some community service and I was his immediate supervisor.
And when he came to us, we had him come in a couple hours a week to do administrative stuff, but we quickly realized that he was very articulate and talented. :47 And we had him start working with youth and ironically enough, got him involved with our citizenship program and naturalization services. And he actually worked with a number of our seniors as well. 1:00
