Legacy of Angkor Coming Up Tomorrow

Bopha Lokei Girls   Legacy of Angkor will be the first event where Khmer adults and youths have joined together. The process in organizing this event have sparked interest in youths in learning about their Khmer heritage. They are very proud and excited to be showing everyone what they have learned and what is a part of who they are.

Thanks to PVI & James Irvine Foundation for promoting the importance of cultural art. It is truly something that can bring people together in a very special way.

Hope to see everyone tomorrow to come enjoy an authentic Khmer experience!

Pov’s Interview on Central Valley Today

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share with you all that on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 I was invited to be a guest on KSEE 24 show Central Valley Today to talk about my tamejavi culture and arts series. Here is the link to the interview: Pov Promoting The Hmong Journey in Fresno on Central Valley Today

I was a bit nervous when the interview began but as the show went on I became more confident in myself. This was a great experience for me since I was able to share my story with the viewers at home and the fellowship program that I’m currently a part of.

I can’t wait for everyone’s event as well as mines. If you have facebook, please join my facebook event page here: Facebook Event: The Hmong Journey In Fresno
