I'm Saren, from Cambodia. I graduated from Asian University for Women, Bangladesh, major in Asian Studies. I was born and raised in a society where girls/women are discriminated in so many different ways. My community is one where girls are not encouraged to go to school; women are supposed to accept domestic violence as it is considered to be "normal"; and that girls won't go far beyond being in the kitchen.
I want to change those perceptions. I believe that girls are just as capable as boys and that they could achieve anything they want.
Gender equality is what I am fighting for, in my country and beyond.
