For a copy of Sokvy’s resume, please email Erika Wah in Community Building (ewah@shecan.global).

Sokvy Vin is a Junior at the University of Portland, where she majors in Finance with a minor in Economics. Sokvy is passionate about international economic development and has a strong interest in social finance. Ultimately, she wants to improve the quality of life for the disadvantaged in Cambodia through economic development and initiatives.

On campus, Sokvy is an International Student Campus Connector where she works directly with the Office of International Student and Services. In her role, she promotes existing programs on campus, creates and organizes events to foster a sense of belonging for international and exchange students. She is also involved with the International Club, where she serves as a Co-Vice President, leading various social and cultural events. Sokvy is a member of Blue Key Honor Society, a premier honor society that recognizes college students with junior status for balanced and all-around excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.

Sokvy spent summer 2023 interning at Bluehub Capital, where she expanded her understanding of finance and impact investing. She worked with the Green Portfolio Committee, where she aggregated data and conducted research on various energy metrics to quantify carbon emissions. 

Her parents, having survived the Cambodian genocide, were not able to complete their high school education. Because of this, Sokvy has always been motivated to get an education. Prior to joining SHE-CAN, together with two friends, Sokvy successfully launched a community health project to enhance sanitation in a village in her community with the assistance of Cambodia’s Future Foundation (CFF). Her team persuaded residents to invest in a toilet, with the community agreeing to pay half the cost of construction and CFF providing the remainder. Sokvy and her companions constructed ten toilets for the community over the course of two years.
