Welcome to LIFT issue 62

Welcome to LIFT issue 62

We think of Lift as a work in progress. Like the lives of our readers, and the development of the Kingdom that we love and live in, we are always looking for ways that we can improve. In this issue, we are launching a number of new features that we think will make our magazine a more engaging experience, and useful resource, for our readers.

Lift is written by Cambodian youth, so we have a pretty good idea of what our peers find interesting and; however, we also know that you know what you want more than we do, and that is why many of our changes are meant to give you, our readers, more say in our decisions on what issues we cover and how we cover them.

Beginning this week, each issue will include Reader Generated News (page 3), a review of the week’s top stories, as voted on by readers; Lift line (page 7), a platform for discussion and cooperation over Facebook, mobile phones and email; and Lift life, a page devoted to professional opportunities and preparation.

We can’t wait to see your response to the new Lift. Send us your ideas, critiques and compliments and we will keep trying to make your magazine better.
