Look Inside

No One Born Poor: Prisoner, Politician, Pioneer

In one of the most extraordinary stories ever told, No One Born Poor poignantly captures the inconceivable life of Veng Sereyvuth. >From a village boy in Prey Veng in Cambodia, a cyclo driver, a prisoner and a refugee, to becoming a politician, a Cabinet Minister in the Cambodian Government and a pioneer in education today – all in the span of 30 years – this striking autobiography of Veng Sereyvuth is an epitome of the indefatigable human spirit. By baring his deepest emotions and boundless aspirations, Veng desires every reader to grasp the enduring truth that within each of us lies our greatest riches – the courage and conviction to imagine and create our future, regardless of what we may confront. The Cambodians call this axiom the Angkor Spirit. In Veng’s words, “The world within you, and the world beyond you, are exceedingly more glorious than you can ever imagine. Let no one tell you that you’re born poor.”
