Name: Samantha Holmes

Achievement: Human Rights Lawyer, Cambodia

Year of leaving school: 2010

Since leaving Canon Lee, I have completed a Law degree at Queen Mary University of London. I currently work as a Legal Consultant at a Cambodian human rights charity, based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. In this role I use international human rights law to advocate for greater respect for human rights in Cambodia. 

It certainly is a challenging role but so very rewarding and worthwhile. I hope my achievements can inspire students to enter the charity sector and strive for a job to improve the greater good.
