Humans of Khmer America

Guitana B. Sath

This is me, Guitana B. Sath. My name is original on it’s own–derived by the combination of three Cambodian meanings of kindness, fire and compassion. I am a second generation Cambodian American studying graphic design at the Savannah College of Art & Design​ (SCAD) and is scheduled to graduate this Spring.

Entering 2015, I discovered that I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. A week after surgery I insisted on going back to school because I felt that cancer shouldn’t stop you from living your life to the fullest and reaching your goals.

As a Cambodian American, I wear my heart and culture on my sleeve. I was born and raised in Lowell, MA where community is the key to happiness. My father Bunrith Sath is one of the most active Cambodian community members I have ever known through his involvement in managing his own TV and radio show and hosting and planning various community events. Being Khmer is a blessing and it has influenced my every day life as an artist and person.
