Som Randa, a Cambodian-American student, recently visited AUPP to share his success story with the University’s students. Som won first place in a 2013 math competition among 2 million competitors in the United States. That same year, Mr. Som was awarded a full life-long scholarship by the Bill Gates Foundation. Currently, Som is pursuing his Bachelors of Biology and Business at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School—the world number one business school.
Mr. Som shared with AUPP students his own experience of successfully applying for a very competitive U.S. scholarship. Som expressed how honored he felt to be one of the few students across the United States awarded a scholarship for long-life studies. Som also shared ideas with AUPP outstanding students about how they could obtain scholarships to study in the U.S. Som was particularly pleased to be able to visit with Loem Mengsay (the number one Cambodian mathematics student in 2015).
AUPP is proud to have Som Randa come and share his successful experience with the University’s students.
