Socheata Huot ’25

Languages speaking: Cambodian & English

Bio: My name is Socheata Huot. I am an International student From Cambodia. I belong to the class of 2025, majoring in Civil Engineering. I grew up speaking and learning Khmer as the official language in Cambodia. I first started to learn English when I was 7 years old. It was challenging for a child to start learning an entirely different language. However, there were fun and educational experiences in studying a new language. For instance, when I was able to read storybooks in English before bedtime. It was one of my proud moments when I was excited to show my parents that I could understand what they were saying in the Cartoon show.

In Middle school, I started to learn more about grammar and writing. That was when I started to get interested in western entertainment such as movies, songs, and cultures. Learning languages brought me a fascination with culture, books, and travel. It also boosted my confidence in communication to be able to understand people from different cultures and continents.
