Our proudest moment of the past year:
Expanding our project to the Davao area and in Cambodia. Expanding to Davao meant a new life for many farmers among the native groups and former members of rebel communist groups who have now given up a life of violent insurgency in favor of agricultural.

Biggest challenge from the past year:
With the program expanding quickly, operations have become much more difficult for our team of students to manage. We consolidated our management team of students in Hawaii and reorganized ourselves and strengthened our local teams in the Philippines.

Team described in one word:
United

Eli is an Operations and Supply Chain Management major who anticipates graduating in June 2022. He hails from Middleton, Idaho, and has been involved in Enactus for one year. Eli first got involved with the Enactus team at BYU-H when he saw the presentation team practice during his first semester at college. “I was really impressed about what they were doing to help people around the world, and I wanted to get involved.” At Enactus World Cup, Eli is looking forward to networking and meeting people from all over the world.

More about Eli:

  • What I’m reading:  “The Lexus and the Olive Tree” by Thomas L. Friedman
  • Theme song:  “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey
  • Who inspires me: PJ Rogers
  • Enactus in one word: Empowering
  • Best Enactus moment: Standing on the Final Round stage during the Enactus United States National Exposition, presenting our project. I didn’t know if we were going to win or not, but it didn’t matter. I just wanted to do my best for my team. And I think I did. Knowing I did my best, that was an awesome feeling.
  • In five years, I will be… “…happily married to the love of my life. I will have graduated college; I will be working overseas in a developing country—probably Southeast Asia or Africa, either with a corporation or my own company.”

Pattica is a Finance and Supply Chain and Operations major who comes from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He has worked hard to overcome the challenge of attending university in the United States, since English is not his first language. Pattica has used this as an opportunity to improve his English skills tremendously. It was Pattica’s initiative to expand the BYU-H Enactus teams’ RiceUP project from the Philippines to his home of Cambodia. At Enactus World Cup, Pattica hopes to gain insight on how the team can make efforts in Cambodia even more successful for the people there.

More about Pattica:

  • What I’m reading: “The Prosperity Paradox” by Clayton M. Christensen
  • Theme song: “Wavin Flag “ by K’Naan
  • Who inspires me: Nelson Mandela
  • Enactus in one word: Change
  • Best Enactus moment: When I traveled to my country of Cambodia to implement my Enactus project with my people. It is pleasing and amazing to see the smiles, the hope and the willingness of my people hoping to change their lives through the Enactus program.
  • In five years, I will be… “…a financial officer at Amazon. And president of Cambodia Culture Treasure.”
