I want to be a supermodel

I want to be a supermodel

9 So Channary

So Channary,  a 22-year-old student at Phnom Penh International University, told LIFT that her dream is to become a supermodel. This is the only job that Channary has dreamed of doing since she was young.

Channary said that fame and fortune were her two most important reasons for wanting to become a supermodel.

“If I become a supermodel, I can earn money by myself and people will recognise me wherever I go,” she said.

However, her family does not always support her plans.

“Actually, my family doesn’t agree with it, but my friends and my other relatives always support me, and that makes me feel more confident to join this field.”

Besides studying at university, Channary joined the university’s traditional dancing group, and she has performed many times onstage.

Channary said that she is very happy when she’s onstage. Many people look at her, which makes Channary proud of herself. She acknowledged that becoming a supermodel is not easy, but she will try her best to fulfil her dream, although she cannot say how things will turn out.
