Welcome to LIFT issue 33


This is our 33rd issue of Lift and, if you have read any of the past 32, you will notice that this one is a bit different and, we think, better. We have always tried to find stories that relate to the lives of ambitious Cambodian youth, and that won’t change, but we want to do a better job of keeping our readers up to date on current events, new developments and opportunities in our Kingdom and around the world.

More importantly, we hope that by writing about the cutting-edge and controversial topics of today we will inspire you, our readers, to participate in the discussion in our magazine and online. Our stories are written by Cambodian youth for Cambodian youth, but we don’t want the experience to end when you finish reading.

That is why Lift is launching a partnership with Angkor One to provide an exclusive discussion forum at angkorone.com/lift. Every week our writers will join our readers in thoughtful conversations about the stories and ideas in our magazine. We will also have a weekly poll to get your opinion on crucial questions to Cambodia’s future.

This week, we also have the results of the first Lift competition, which asked readers to capture globalization in a photograph. We hope this week’s winner will inspire you to put your creativity to the test in future competitions (details about our next contest on page 9).

We hope you like the new Lift. If you have any critiques, criticisms or comments, send them to [email protected] and we will keep making your magazine better.
