Introducing David Chau of Orange County
A proud member of Cal State Fullerton’s Cambodian Student Association, David Chau is a graduating senior majoring in business marketing. He acknowledges involvement with his student organization as being the catalyst for his cultural immersion and appreciation.
Growing up, Chau felt like the only Cambodian person among his peers, although he did attend weekly Khmer lessons and the annual New Year celebration in Long Beach. “Other than my parents, I didn’t really have role models, but I know with the people I meet in college now, there are so many potential leaders that are going to advance our growing community,” says Chau.
“The Khmerican helps showcase everything from culture and arts to community work, and I want everyone to know about it!” he says. “I want Cambodian-Americans to be informed of the news happening in all parts of Khmer America and what’s going on in Cambodia as well.”
Khmerican will eventually serve as an archive for future generations to read about their history, according to Chau, but he also believes that just like others living in America, Cambodian Americans want to learn about themselves and their own heritage.
Joining us as a community liaison based in Orange County, California, David Chau brings his business experience, networking skills, and energy/passion to the team.
