When do you study –weekdays or weekend?
I study weekdays in the morning. Because I got a scholarship from Government, and my University requireds me to study during the week. If I wanted to do change my schedule, I would have to change my major too, because there are no Information Technology classes on weekends. I have no choice.
What do you do on the weekend? Do you have English class? Where?
Sometimes I visit my parents in their hometown I help them with their work and I help my sisters with Mathematics. I don’t go to English class because I have lessons during the week in the Porvil pagoda.
Do you take extra computing lessons? If so, why?
Yes, I do, because my University requires me to have computer skills. On the other hand, my major is closely related to Computing and if I do not study hard I could fail my exams and in my future too.

In the future I want to be an expert in Information Technology. I think it is a subject that can help me to find a good job easier than other.
How did you learn about Coconut Water Foundation (CWF)? Why did you choose Coconut Water to volunteer?
