Story by Foeung Pheth
In Cambodia I was a farmer. I have a animal. The animal is a cow and a buffalo. My job was
planting rice. The animals help me pull the plow. I lived in a field and jungle with many
trees. My family lived with me. My family helped me take care of planting rice, taking
care of the animals, chickens, pigs, dog, ducks, cat, horse.

Yesterday I go to find a job. A man talked to me. He tell me about planting flower in
the box. One week I have a job five days. One day I work eight hour. One hour I get
the money $3.50. It is a full time job. I’ll start on Monday.
