April is a special month for the Cambodian community. It is Genocide Awareness and Prevention month. As many of you know, from 1975-1979, over 2 million Cambodians were killed under the Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot. Most of the elders, intellects, and visionaries were executed during this time. Nearly a quarter of the country’s population was wiped out.
It has been a painful few decades for the Cambodian community since that tragic event. Many suffered from PTSD, had no money, and knew little/no English. Progress hasn’t been easy but we are trying to strengthen the community one day at a time. This year, I’m so delighted to connect and highlight 43 Cambodian business owners/influencers to kick off our Cambodian New Year celebration.
Please show these Khmer business owners/influencers some love by:
1. Following their social media pages
2. Sharing their posts or stories
3. Giving them a shoutout
4. Writing them a review
We are so delighted to see so many Cambodian leaders come together to celebrate and acknowledge our beautiful culture. Big shoutout to these Cambodian trailblazers for making an impact in our community. Please check them out! See below their instagram pages:
Next week, I’ll share each of their individual statements on why they are proud to be Cambodian in a video montage. Stay tuned.
