Who’s that​ girl on the motorcycle?

You have probably seen her racing around Wat Langka on her big bike, dressed like a gangster rapper in baggy clothes and bling-bling and you may have asked yourself: who is that girl? Now, LIFT found her.

Ary Gon, called “Vy”, is a choreographer and dances and trains with the Cambodian hip-hop star Ouk Sokun Kanha.

She learned her skills from professional instruction and self-study from YouTube videos. For three years she has been part of the hip-hop dancing ensemble Qu-T.

“I have liked hip-hop style since I was young and I want to present my style and the way I am to the world,” she said.

Being this way is natural to her, she said.

“I look differently from others and I want to live my life uniquely. This way everybody recognises me,” she added.

With her eccentric hat, glasses, watch, shoes and especially her crotch rocket, she is a rare sight among Cambodian teenagers.

Some people feel offended by her pompous presence but Vy doesn’t care about people who judge others by their appearance. “If you want to seek your goal, you should follow your heart to do the right things.” She said.
