I started to write when I was in Paris. It was in 1998. I went to France to continue my study in an engineering school. At that time, people had a very little idea of what was happening in the country.
My first mission in my writing is to update the world what’s on in Cambodia.
I started posting my writing in forums all over the places. People were very surprised to read something new about Cambodia. I wrote in English. It was a challenge for me. My English is very limited. I didn’t attend any proper English school. I paid at that time 500 riels for an hour of English class.
After I came back to Cambodia, I kept writing various things. In 2005, I won Nou Hach Literature award for Ka Touch, a short story I wrote in Khmer.
I received another award in 2007.
I adapted and self-published 2 of my short stories in English on Amazon. You can purchase them on my author page via this link.
I keep writing with the time that I have. Writing is an art that I like to spend the most of my time with. But most of all, here are the people that are very important to me.
I like sharing and speaking occasionally at Barcamp, Teachcamp and panel discussion that related to Technology, writing and blogging.
I’m an open person. Do not hesitate to say hello via my social profile. If you need my help on something specific, contact me via the form below:
