From Hell to Heaven
Sophal Pettit, was a young child when the Polpot revolution came to Cambodia. She, along with her parents and siblings, is a survivor of the Killing Fields of Cambodia. They came to this country with nothing, but their lives. At age fourteen she enrolled in school for the first time, not understanding or speaking a word of English. Sophal shares her stories, beginning with normal everyday life typical to lives as most of us know it, to the isolation, unspeakable death tolls, and devastation of the Killing Fields, then, her family’s escape to U.N. camps and subsequent sponsorship to the U.S.
Sophal’s touching story will grip you, as she talks about the struggles of adapting to life in the U.S. and her journey to discovering herself. She shares her story to inspire others to understand that they do not need to live a life of victimhood and that they can indeed overcome the trials life brings to them.
Sophal’s deep spiritual connection to God has been her saving grace. She describes herself as a child of the King of Kings, a wife, mom of 3 kids, a grandma (aka) Glamma, and a partner business owner. She lives a busy, productive life. While her journey has not been an easy one, she knows that the road that she took has made her a champion for life.

Sophal was born in Takeo, Cambodia, a small town near the Vietnamese border on July 16th 1970. At the tender age of five, the Khmer Rouge, a communist guerrilla group led by Pol Pot, took power in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia forcing all city dwellers into the countryside and labor camps. During their rule, it is estimated that nearly 2 million Cambodians died by starvation, torture or execution. At the very young age of fourteen, she and her family of seven arrived in the United States as refugees. Sophal’s powerful personal story will touch, inspire, and demonstrate why she has always been destined for success.
