Student Story: Rozana* from Cambodia
November 3, 2023
Rozana is 24 years old and lives in a community center for children, called Kampuchea Sëla Handicap (KSH) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. At the center, she lives with 17 other children as her family lives far away in Kampong Som province, where her parents run a family business.
While living in the center, children help each other and are responsible for their own daily tasks. When Rozana first joined the group she had a hard time managing her emotions. She would often shout with those she disagreed with or would be extremely shy.
By joining the Create sessions at Skateistan, Rozana pushed herself out of her comfort zone to play and be brave while learning new things. She has also learned to stay calm with her peers in times of disagreement.
“What I like the most at Skateistan is the Create class because I love painting, drawing and learning through watching the videos. I never learned those things before attending the Skate School program.”
