Rothnica Marin has a wealth of experiences, and she’s just now about to get her high school diploma.
The Hallsville senior immigrated with her family from Cambodia two years ago. She speaks five languages including her native Khmer.
“I’ve been learning English since the third grade until now,” she said. “My mom had me take some Chinese classes, but it was a few years ago. I can say a few basics, reading and stuff like that, and now I’m learning Korean because that’s the language I want to learn.”
