I want to become a public relations officer

10 Sin Siekly

Sin Siekly, a fourth year student at the National University of Management, told LIFT that she wants to be a public relations officer.

She said that ever since she was young, she always loved managing family events and doing work that requires talking to people.

At first, Siekly did not know what she wanted to do in the future, and her dad suggested becoming a teacher, considering it more appropriate for women. However, she felt that it  wasn’t really what she wanted to do.

After a friend got a job as a public relations assistant and told her about her work duties, Siekly realised that was exactly what she wanted to do. She discussed the idea with her father, and the family decided to support her.

Siekly said she believes that in order to do the work well, she has to be skillful and have talent and not just be passionate.

“I always like this job, but I believe just having passion is not enough.”

Siekly has always liked to do sociable work that relate to events.

She has done quite a few social events so far, such as for a Khmer New Year celebration at Siem Reap, a blood donation event, and a youth conference at Koh Pich.
