“Srey Khun (20 years old), a nascent artist, won the first prize in FICAC recycled art competition. Her very first artwork “Lovers” features two young people who are happily engaged with each other. She came to the center about 5 months ago and now she lives there as well. She learns English, being a proper barista, cooking, sewing, and, of course, art. Srey Khun says; “I come here because there is more food and good living here. At home, my parents have many problems and I became very depressed before I joined the center. Here I feel good and supported”. Her well-earned first place is not solely due to her painting but also because of her prominent role as a novice model for the Trash Fashion photo project.”
