Coming from a simple family in Kampot province of Cambodia, I’ve spent most part of my teenage years in learning and working. Through those experiences, I’ve built myself up from the ground and finally, become an entrepreneur running a media production company with my co-founder.
I believe that no matter situation or position we are in, we can be great at what we are doing and get what we want when we put our heart and soul into that.
