Meet Wanna. Wanna Kahn is a Cambodian college student studying engineering in Vietnam.
Wanna was one of the first Cambodian bloggers to leave a comment on my
blog and we have gotten to know each other through flickr and our blogs. I've know Wanna virtually for over three years. Here's our first voice conversation back in 2005. Wanna also helped me with my first tooth fairy assignment -- he made a voice recording of the word "tooth" in Khmer.
We've never met face-to-face (yet). At one point, I helped Wanna purchase a domain (can't quite remember the circumstance) but he didn't have a credit card and needed a domain, so I got if for him.
He's working on his thesis and a little stressed ... any advice to offer him?
Meanwhile, I am so proud that he put the Sharing Foundation's America's Giving Challenge widget on his blog. I didn't even ask him .. I didn't want to distract him from his thesis. I know that if he had credit card he would donate, but putting the widget on his blog is worth millions to me. Thank you Wanna.

I got an email from Wanna that said "Hi Beth, I've successfully delivered by thesis to the school. Let's party now :)"
