‘If you can already change and inspire the ministry of Education Youth and Sports, I am positive you will be the next generation of positive change agents for Cambodian future through your works and efforts as I have seen‘ — His excellency, Hong Choun Naron, the minister of MoEys Cambodia.
On the 15th of July, 2019, My technovation group (The Credos) went to the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport (MoEYS) to present our project of developing Amara, an application that helps artists and empower Cambodian Culture.
After gotten an invite from the ministry, we were so excited to share our project with the minister and the people there. It is a perfect opportunity to expand and find more supports as well as critical comments for our application from experienced economists and government workers.
His excellency, Hong Choun Naron, the minister of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports, was also delighted to meet with the four teams. He shows immense support and encouragement for our applications while giving us a lot of thoughtful and wise feedbacks. His remarks were extremely inspiring to me, as well as everyone there.
The discussion opened with delighted pleasure, with teams sharing their highlights, lessons, and perspectives towards technology and entrepreneurship education in Cambodia, and how Technovation helps to empower girl, especially how it debunks the stereotype of Cambodian girls.
The four teams, including my team, the Credos, then got a chance to present our pitch presentations to the floor. Everyone in the hall was pleased to see how the dreams and potentials of us as Cambodian girls would give back great impacts on our still impoverished society.
All of the applications from the four teams responded to the real needs of the current Cambodian Society and will positively make huge impacts on the lives of millions of people out there. Although our project is still in a prototype form, We have high expectations of its future development and launching for the great impacts it will bring to our country, and hopefully the world.
In the meeting, I notice how all of us seems to be immensely supportive of how Information Technology and Education for girls can create a better future for Cambodia Economics. How the ministry acceded the touchstone of future education with Techentrepreneurship gives me a real optimism of Cambodian future human resources.
It was a privilege to be a part of this marvelous meeting. The lessons and inspiration from the ministry will always be a powerful message that shapes my dreams and who I want to be in the future.
