"Come study at Emily Griffith because the teachers are amazing and you will have a great experience."

Chansoth Sen is a recent graduate of our English and Cosmetology programs. Chansoth first moved to the US in 2009 from Cambodia and came to Emily Griffith to improve her English. “My English was very bad when I started school and I was shy when I have to speak,” she explains. 

She worked her way through English classes and then began working on her certificate in Cosmetology. Chansoth worked closely with our ELA and Career Services navigation team to plan and achieve her academic and career goals. She plans to work in a salon to gain experience until she can open her own salon here and in Cambodia. 

Chansoth encourages others to come study at Emily Griffith. “You are never too late to go to school and become who you want to be. If you work hard, you can accomplish all of your goals. Come study at Emily Griffith because the teachers are amazing and you will have a great experience.”
