“Humility, confidence and believing in yourself are the most important values to help you gain and achieve success.”

I study Global Production Engineering and Management (GPEM) at Vietnamese German University (VGU) in the MSc program. Being a Hinrich Foundation scholar has put me on a path toward greater knowledge and understanding of global trade. Beyond academics, I began a new journey and joined the Hinrich family.

As a Cambodian studying in Vietnam it has been at times challenging; one must be self-motivated to succeed. As a student, I have become a man with high ambition, confidence, determination and passion. Of course, studying engineering is not only the factor necessary to become a successful person – management and communication are also important parts of business and society.

My favorite aspect of the GPEM program is working with international students and foreign professors. Sharing working styles, experiences and intellectual achievements with them has made me more comfortable in international environments and expanded my perspective. Cross-cultural courses developed by the Hinrich Foundation have also helped me communicate clearly and efficiently while working with Adidas suppliers such as Suntex.

This opportunity through Hinrich Foundation and Adidas is helping me fulfill my goals. In the future, I will be a professional production engineer with the right management skills to help develop Industry 4.0 in Cambodia.
