Speaker: Ms. Nara Sokhema: Founder of the Young Leaders Programme & Director of Recruitment and Marketing at Teach For Cambodia.
Sokhema has a master in International Development from the University of Manchester, UK, with the prestigious support of Chevening Scholarship. Prior to this, she had worked for Transparency International Cambodia, UNCAC Coalition, UNDP, YESWECAN, etc. Sokhema is passionate about youth leadership empowerment, social volunteerism, development, education, environmental protection, as well as travelling and learning from the world. She’s been to 46 countries. She has started volunteering since she was a 15. The project changed her life forever and has inspired her to contribute most of her time towards initiating/leading community projects and building more young capable and ethical leaders, while doing 2 BA program in Economics and International Studies at the same time (and still maintained high score and distinction). For 8 years, she has been passionately leading over a dozen projects and supporting more than 50 initiatives (workshop, training, project, radio show, campaign,…etc), helped the team raise 50,000 USD to fund social projects and reached out to 10,000+ youths across Cambodia and South East Asia.
Meaningful volunteerism is one of the keys to expand the understanding of development issues, leadership capacity, willingness to serve the humanity and the commitment to make a difference, all of which have helped her to win more than 16 local and international scholarships, awards, social enterprise challenges, essay contests, project competitions and the honor to meet president Obama at the Young South East Asian Leaders Initiative Town Hall meeting in 2014.
