Often I sing on tuk tuk tops, or when marching, and almost always at Freedom Park.
Not real for a politician and in particular a female politician and in a society that demands “good behavior” from women to sing in public.
For over 10 years in politics, i have found my moral, emotional and physical strength in the stories of the people I serve. And always, music is in my head and my heart cries from hearing the stories.
Since I was a child, i learned about the rich and the poor, the haves and the have nots. It was through the lullabies sung by my nannies, the Khmer opera and the music of the 60’s that I learned the power of songs and music.
Singing again as I am searching for strength to continue this long journey.
