During my winter break in 2013, I spent my time working with VOA in Phnom Penh’s office. I did several pieces of news including video news, multimedia, and text articles. Here are some of them:
January 22, 2014–video profile of a garment factory’s worker near Phnom Penh

The protest organized by opposition party in Cambodia to call out for Prime Minister Hun Sen’s resignation.
December 28, 2013–the multimedia piece on poverty in Cambodia
PHNOM PENH — An increasing number of Cambodians see themselves faring worse, a Gallup polls suggests.
In a global survey released earlier this month, the US-based firm ranked Cambodia near the very bottom in terms of life satisfaction, and it found that 34 percent of surveyed Cambodians consider themselves “suffering.”
In December 25, 2013
The multimedia piece was about a violence in Phnom Penh when government’s armed forces attacked groups of protesters in front of city hall. Here is a brief translation from Khmer version.
PHNOM PENH — At least four monks and five other people were injured in repeated clashes between demonstrators and police in Phnom Penh Tuesday.
Housing activists were demonstrating against forced evictions in the Boeung Kak neighborhood of the capital, when the clashes began.
Rights workers say about 30 former residents of the neighborhood joined with about 100 monks in demonstrations near Monivong Boulevard, a major thoroughfare in the city.
Witnesses said the clashes ensued after “impolite” remarks from authorities.
