Tin is Challenging Gender Roles.

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

She has been pushing the skate scene for girls, young people and Cambodians more generally since she first stepped on a board in 2012. Straight away, skating opened the door to the challenge of changing people’s minds on what it means to be a girl, ..

"When I first started skateboarding and working with Skateistan, my mum didn’t have any objections to me skating. But my parents are a bit different from other parents in Cambodia. My mum wanted to motivate me and let me in, she knew I was confident to make my own decisions."

"People in my community didn’t really respect me or value me as a girl skateboarder. They didn’t see any value in people participating in skateboarding at all. They thought I was wasting my time doing it and that I couldn’t get anything from skating. They thought I was stupid!"

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
