Introducing myself and my journal: Bunong Woman's education on Media

About Me:
My name's Loek Sreyneang, i'm 23 and I am belong to Bunong indigenous people in Cambodia and I a year 4 law student. I I came from a remote area in northern of Cambodia, my parent is illiteracy and they have no job beside farmer, hunting and collect the natural resources in the forest. I was born in the farm who have no hospital far away from the town 70 kilometers that my mum have never receive the health hotline or care center for Bunong indigenous women since 15 years ago.

I am wonder myself on what myself did with social media as other Bunong indigenous women did not know how to use social media or ICT and we Bunong women don't have any women who graduated on media training or bachelor on media. Most of the women in my village don't know how to use social media and we have only one radio post who control information by ruling party. Most of our Bunong indigenous women in my village haven't graduate from grade 9, we have only 2 women from my district who graduated university in Phnom Penh. So, most of them have never enter to the social media or web.

My Passions:
Women's education

My Challenges:
social media educat is limited for myself

My Vision for the Future:
50% of my village generation shall be enter to social media

My Areas of Expertise:
Cambodia

Women Weave the Web Campaign

Sreyneang,

I'm excited to read about your thoughts on social media and ICT use among Bunong women! I wonder if you would be willing to compose a piece about these digital issues for our Women Weave the Web Campaign? I'd love to hear your thoughts about how technology affects your life and the lives of women around you. And this seems like a perfect subject! You can find out more information about the campaign here, http://worldpulse.com/about/blog/announcing-the-digital-literacy-phase-o.... It would be fabulous to have your voice join others as we think through issues around digital literacy in all its complexity.

By participating, you will be joining a global community of women speaking out on the importance of digital inclusion and empowerment for women. Your voice will be delivered to powerful decision makers such as government officials, leaders in the technology industry, and policy makers at international organizations. In addition to influencing global agendas, your submission to the campaign will open the door to incredible opportunities such as:

· Being selected to represent World Pulse at influential international forums. This is your chance to meet key players and make your voice count!

· Connecting and building relationships with grassroots women leaders around the world. Be part of a community of thousands of women speaking out on this issue!

· Exploring and sharing resources for your work on our Campaign Resources page. Find support for your initiatives from funding to volunteers and supporters!

· Getting your voice heard on a global scale! World Pulse will analyze and collate your stories to deliver recommendations to influencers and decision makers on a global scale.

· Getting visibility and support for your work. Your story could be featured on our site, included in an e-magazine, or even published by well-known media outlets!

And the 2014 Lynn Syms Prize will be awarded to an outstanding grassroots woman and visionary voice using digital tools to effect change and advance her community work. The prize will include a $20,000 monetary prize to be paid out over two years to support her community based work, a feature profile on WorldPulse.com, and an all-expense paid trip to speak her message in New York City. You can find more on the website, http://worldpulse.com/campaigns/www/www-women-weave-the-web-campaign-prizes
