Seanghouy is dedicated to identifying academic and non-academic challenges, initiating fun activities and informative workshops in order to help students balance their life-college-work responsibilities. With that kind of support, she believes that it does not only make their academic journey a lot more at ease, but it also enables them to unleash their full potential and make the best use of it.
