The icebreakers

If you don’t recognise any of the three youth in the image above, it probably means you aren’t spending much time with Cambodian youth. Chhay Chansopheaktra (dressed in purple dress and navy suit), Anna Nov (in red dress and navy pant suit) and Tharo Sen (the lone man) are not only known among the hundreds of people who they interact with on a daily basis at school, work, and various clubs, organisations or gatherings outside of school. Chhay Chansopheaktra and Tharo Sen are still studying at university, where they have both taken on leadership roles in AEISEC, an international youth leadership organisation, and devoted significant time to groups (such as 4K), who are working on projects in the arts, development, or education. Their relationships do not end there, however. They are all avid online social networkers as well. Anna Nov estimates that she has more than 9,000 friends on Facebook, and they are just getting started!
