Peipei Soeung is studying computer science as a Sophomore at Dartmouth College. After her first year, during the summer, she was awarded over $2K in funding through SHE-CAN’s Make A Change Program and returned home to Cambodia. There, she organized and developed a 2-hour presentation with a follow-up virtual Q&A session on how to apply for college scholarships both in Cambodia and the US, for almost 80 high school students from her old high school in the city. 

Peipei was born in a small town in Battambang province where her mother’s mango farm is located. When Peipei was four years old, her mother decided to move to the city so that Peipei could pursue an education. At 15, Peipei volunteered to teach English to students in rural areas who couldn’t afford to learn otherwise. Six months later, she was given a paid internship offer to teach English at USA International School. Throughout high school, Peipei participated in various competitions and programs, and the Learning Across Borders (LAB) program led her to discover her passion for the environment. Following this, in October of 2020, she started an environmental advocacy campaign called SAFE (Social Advocacy For Environment) that works on promoting awareness of global environmental and animal issues.

​With her newfound interest in Computer Science and Digital Art, Peipei wants to start a career in Cambodia that will open doors for other people, especially Cambodian women who share her interest in this field that is still new to the country.
