IAMA Survivor of the Cambodian Genocide, born to one of the educated families, witness to 3 regime changes, I was a smuggler in the later years to survive. AMA!
I was a survivor of the Cambodian Genocide that killed more than 2 million people from 1975-1979. The Khmer Rouge attempted to purge the country of the free market, intellectuals, teachers, religion, and closed our borders in order to create a communist society. I managed to survive and escape to refugee camps. After I moved to the US I studied History and Political Science to help understand the bigger picture in Southeast Asia at the time. That's where most of my specialization is in. Ask me about daily life at the time, how to raise a family, how to save money by building your own house, my business experiences.
Michelle Obama went to Cambodia to talk about education last week with a focus on letting the girls learn initiative. A large part of my book deals with education during the peacetime. My father was a teacher and sent to educate the poor in the countryside. Education was dictated by the French in colonial years.
