Tear grew up in a remote Khmu village 3 hours away via dirt roads from Luang Prabang. He grew up as a novice monk in a buddhist temple, attended Buddhist high school, and is now studying computer science at the Teacher's Training College.
Dream: Finish school, teach and do his photography He is an avid photographer and is now Halo2Go's photographer and videographer.
Success: Tear will complete Teacher's Training College in January 2019, and move to a remote village to teach computer science as a "volunteer" for 2 years. This means he earns no income, but has a room to live and food. Doing photography for Halo2Go and other local events will help him earn money while he applies his education.
