Kim-Samath

I am Kim Samath, year four student of Department of Media and Communication of The Royal University of Phnom Penh. I am also a freelancer of Lift Magazine of The Phnom Penh Post.

When I was young and knew how to read a little bit, I liked to read newspaper the most since I wanted to know what happened in society. Time went by I started to know that being a journalist is my future's career, so I applied for the scholarship at the Department of Media and Communication(DMC).

I won the scholarship there as I expected. I started writing news article for my homework and assignment. News Writing is my favorite subject. Even though I found it difficult at the first start, I was eager and curious to learn it more.

In my opinion, in daily life, news is very important since it can inform, educate and entertain the readers with fruitful information to beneficiate them and also gives big impact to the society in term of promoting the freedom of expression, and democracy. Because seeing its advantages, I set my own goal to be a reporter.

To achieve my goal, I put what I learned from my school in to real practice by working as a freelancer of The Lift Magazine when I was a second year student. Last year, I did two month-internship as a reporter of The Phnom Penh Post. I wrote articles for daily publication in both Khmer and English. In the summer break this year, I also did two month- internship as a reporter at the Jakarta Post Newspaper in Indonesia supported by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. I also win six month- exchange program and I will graduate my Journalism field in University of Genoa, Italy.

I am committed to absorb practical knowledge and experience in order to use my advanced knowledge and experience to share to other media students, and journalists, especially to improve journalism field in Cambodia.
