Welcome to LIFT issue 40

Welcome to LIFT issue 40

We’re feeling ambitious at Lift after a much-needed holiday, and we are passing on the professional energy with an issue all about work. Admittedly, its not the most exciting-sounding theme. But we think we’ve put together some pretty good information for students who are now realising they might need to get a job if they want to make it through the year without going broke (page 4).

While we don’t encourage our readers to follow the trend, we also sent a reporter out to investigate prostitution among Cambodian students and why it is happening (page 6).

You will find Kounila Keo’s column about how we can eliminate poverty, some of the best comics from the 24-hour draw event held in Phnom Penh last weekend and a mini-bio on the young man on his way to becoming the first Cambodian-born F1 champion. You also get a post-Pchum Ben double dose of advice, some tips from an organisation at home and an inspiring email from a student abroad.
