#59- Dreams come true!!!

Last night, Dr.Sopheap(pronounced so-peep) Ly emailed me, “did you get my book?”

Oh…I forgot to check my mails today… and I went to check my mails down stairs mail box at my apartment building around 11:00pm last night…

Yes! I got her book from her!!!

The book, “No Dream Beyond My Reach” (I wrote about her book on May 13th, 2009 in my blog), looks great!

Sopheap wrote me a nice note inside the book. “Thanks for being my friend****************** Love, Sopheap,MD”.

So…I started reading her book this morning and I just finished it.

Wow…Sopheap is an amazing woman!!! She is a survivor of the Cambodian Killing Fields and lost her father and uncle at the time, but she came to U.S.A. and became an American MD!

I enjoyed her book very much.

It was funny that she met her best friend, Aretha in the bathroom…. So funny! I always meet my great friends in the bathroom too…I met my best friend,Suzie in the bathroom of the dormitory. Sopheap sounds so sweet and super woman.

“Your dream is never beyond your reach”…her father’s words…great story that her dream came true like her father told her.

From Cambodia refugee to American MD. Sopheap’s journey is really amazing!!!

My Friend, Keasha edited this book and I heard that Sopheap will be on the radio show from Keasha…and I was impressed Sopheap’s radio interview and about her book...so I wrote about her and her book in my blog&Twitter last month…and Sopheap saw my blog and she wrote me a nice email. Since then, we talked on the computer (emails to each other) and became new friends!

Anyway, I really want to share her story/her book with you all, my friends and readers.

My some dreams came true and I have more dreams for my future! How about you?

Please see below more information about this book “No Dream Beyond My Reach”.

I hope you will inspired by “No Dream Beyond My Reach” by Dr. Sopheap Ly.
