Who has compares Cambodia to another country? I have because I want my country to be a better country. Now a day, Cambodia is developing with factories, building, technology, education, economy and etc. Can you imagine how much does it grow from Khmer Rouge until nowadays? From non-educated to educated society from darkness to brightness. It is almost impossible to imagine. If you need to change something in your country you need to change yourself first. From my 2018-2019 I believed that I have the ability to impact and also to change Cambodia.
I have done so many projects this year. At the beginning of the year, one of my explorations was Traveling Theater, which is to create the Moblie Theater for the community. Mobile Theater is the same as the traveling theater that can travel around Cambodia to perform and also to impact the people in the community about the gamble, education, chemical usage, and etc. They’re still people gamble, don’t go to school and use chemicals in the food we hope that after they see our show they will change their mind. If Cambodia is covering by people with a good mindset as the blanket I can’t imagine that how great this country would be, there will be no more fighting, argument, discrimination, and people got depression. I want to see people respect each other, helping each other, love each other and protect the amazing country that we live now a day. I strongly believe that we will make that imaginary become reality by just starting from all of us, we are the change agent of Cambodia.
One April I have a project called Human Of Cambodia (HOC). Human of Cambodia means to Interview and capture pictures of Cambodian and make the document or nonfiction story about humans that live in Cambodia. HOC also impact a lot of things it can make people thinking with a different perspective change their mindsets and sharing though through looks at the picture and reading the caption of each person. Since I joined this project I feel more comfortable in writing, interviewing and talking picture. Audiences can get inspired by seeing the pictures and the quotes. This project can help us building those kinds of skills and I believe this can be a part of changing Cambodia. As a change agent for Cambodia, I always dream of my country become a role model for other countries. But, if I just dream without taking action that makes no sense. That why I am here. This is the link to Human Of Cambodia’s blog.
One of the biggest projects that I have done this year is Technovation. Technovation is a program for girls from over the world to learn and apply the skill need to solve real-world problems by making an application. We were working with our mentor to get the app and the business plan was done in three months. The problem that we are trying solve is about the lost popularity of Khmer Poem. We have found out that most of the students are having a hard time writing Khmer Poem. Khmer Poem is hard because it requires rhymes words and it has its own structure of writing. We believe that our app can help to bring back the popularity of the poem. We also get to the finalist, and we presented our pitch at silicon valley.
