Savada Prom, an OSF Civil Society Leadership Fellow from Cambodia, shares the best part about living in Washington D.C.
Hi! My name is Savada Prom. I graduated from Royal University of Law and Economics in Cambodia. I obtained my Bachelor of Laws degree in 2010. Currently, I am Master of Laws candidate at American University Washington College of Law in DC. I am doing a LL.M in the Trial Advocacy Program.
What I like the most about DC is that it is the heart of the United States. It is the capital of the United States, thus majority of the country’s decisions about the US or about its international relations are made here. People pay attention to national and international politics.
Another point is that many national and international governmental and non-governmental organizations are based here in DC; therefore students who are studying here can seize the opportunity to intern or work with those organizations. As such, it is a very good opportunity for students who study in DC.
For me personally, I like the fact that DC has many beautiful parks and the weather is also much better than many other states. Furthermore, many places such as zoos and museums are free, so it is good for students who live on budget. Thank you.
