Thavry Thun has been working at PEPY for over 6 months and has been an inspiration to all. She studies IT in a class of 54 people, 53 of them are boys. She is from a small island outside of Phnom Penh where was one of very few people to go on to high school (accessible by a bike bike, boat, bike journey each way), and one of even fewer women to graduate and go on to university. She moved with us to Siem Reap and, even though she is a full-time student, she finds the time to write PEPY’s Khmer Early Literacy Books, learn computer programing, and make her own website.
Visit her site at www.thavry.com and, for extra doses of inspiration, view the “My Art” pages (Life 1 and Life 2) for her drawings and stories about life in Cambodia or visit the pages called “My Island Homeland” where she has put up photos of her home including descriptions which shed light on Cambodian culture.
Thank you for being a PEPY Person, Thavry!
