Hello, world! My name is Sokea, an 11th-grade student. I am a 16-year-old girl from the riverside of Cambodia. I was raised in Kampong Cham province almost my entire life, where I lived with my grandparents, uncles, aunts and my older sister. Presently, I live in the city of Phnom Penh with the other 109 children in the immense school.

I am just an ordinary girl. A girl that used to go to a government school and learned Khmer curriculum for 6 years. In 2012, an opportunity that changed my life completely and brought me to who I am today had come. It was the acceptance to the Liger Leadership Academy. From that on, I had lived and learned as a boarding student with a full scholarship.

On the other hand, throughout many years, I discovered my true passion, which is art. Ever since I was young, I love to draw especially pencil drawings. Every time I saw people’s incredible artworks, I always wish that I can do like they could. So, whenever I have free time I always tried to practice and until now, I had improved a lot.

After I took a risk and learned something that I have never explored during my 2018 summer break, I had discovered my new passions. Those passions are filmmaking and photography. Since then, I would spend my time filming and taking photos of random subjects that I found interesting.
