Chapter 3: A Poor Girl

Gold-like sun light welcome the morning
It was a beautiful Monday morning, and the Sun welcomed the morning with its warm gold-like light to shine the whole world. The birds were singing happy on a mango tree inside Thida’s backyard which had plenty of green fruit. Thida was made to wake up from her sweet dream which she always dreamt about her hero by her radio alarm which was set on Love FM 97.5 channel the most popular English speaking station in Cambodia. The music that welcome the beautiful morning was a romantic song of Maria Carey called Hero which was Thida’s favorite song. Thida was listening and singing along with the song:

There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away ... And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you...

Thida sang along with the song until it was over. ‘I love this song so much, and I hope one day my hero will come for me.’ said Thida with a very good mood and hope in side her heart.

Poor Thida was a kind girl, who had a good heart and true beauty in side her eyes, but there was something wrong with her outside beauty and it was something that nobody could explain. Her parents and younger sister hated her so much with no reason. However, Thida was still a very independent young lady. She always loved her family; although, they never did anything good to her. In her heart, she always believed her family would share their love to her. Thida was one of Harry Potter fans and she believed in magic. She read all Harry Potter books which she bought from Boston Book and as well as The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teen. Those books helped her to go through her hard life and directed her to understand the meaning life.

Every day, Thida had to do all of the cooking and cleaning. She never had nice clothes to wear, while her sister Malay had everything. However, she never complaint about it; in contrast, she felt happy doing her house work. And believe in her dream and hard work.

After she prepared foods and drinks for her parents and her sister, and cleaned the whole house. She prepared herself for school. She was a freshman studying English in a university in Cambodia called Norton University, and she never paid for the university fee because she was the 1st place student of English Department.

Thida's old sneakers
Her sister Malay was a very jealous girl; she and her friends always mocked at Thida. She was a pretty girl, but her inner was awful. She never told anyone that Thida is her own sister. Malay droved her brand new brand Honda Icon to school everyday; for Thida her transportation was her two feet with a pair of old Converse sneakers which her loved so much. They were her birthday gift from her best friend Chenda.
