CCF student Sophy’s TED Talk: The moralities of Cambodian teens

We write so often about how amazing our CCF students are, and you might think “well, of course they would say that”. Well, if you want unmistakeable evidence, here it is – one of our students giving a brilliant TED talk in English on the topic of teenage morality, in front of a packed room.

Impressed? What if we told you Sophy’s chosen topic may have emerged from her own life. She spent the early years of her life forced to steal to survive. Deep in debt, her family fled their village in the middle of the night and settled in Steung Meanchey as scavengers on the old dump.

Now finishing high school, Sophy has become an exceptional young leader with a passion for improving her country. Don’t take our word for it though, see for yourself!
