Dara's thoughts, feelings, experiences of and expression to the world aroud him
Who the hell is Dara?
I am the sum of my experiences.
I am a troubled but fun kind of human.
I am passionate about life with dignity.
My thinking and feelings are expressed here in my own personal space.
Currenlty I work, play and dream big together with 47 artists and 70 team members in Phare Performing Social Enterprise (PPSE) http://www.pharecircus.org in her
mission of supporting Phare Ponleu Selpak school, providing professional
opportunities for Cambodian youth and revitalizing arts in Cambodia.
I was a student at Phare Ponleu Selpak Association in 2001 in my High School Year in Battambang.
I was later an interpreter at Phare and joined the first group of performing artists on
awareness theater/circus performance tours to educate rural Cambodian
populations on landmines, malaria, dengue fever and other public health and
I spent 13 years of my professional careers in travel, tourism, hospitality and events management in Cambodia before I embarked on the journey on artists career and social programs sustainability in 2013. I have a keen interest in business and personal development and entrepreneurship. My dream is to develop and enhance a strongly reputable and internationally recognized Cambodian brand which Phare already is.

This photo reminds me of my childhood and adolescent. I helped mom grow, arrange flowers. Mom goes for the prayer in the pagoda when it’s time to go in. I stayed outside and continue to sell in front of Damrei Sor, White Elephant pagoda in Battambang.
I don’t put rubbish in my brain. I keep myself motivated to do the best that I can. Besides my family, mentors and friends that keeps me going further, here are the things that I read, watch, listen to.
Please watch this episode of “The Practice” until the end to appreciate the dilemma of a person faced with the rules, ethics and a being human being. Mr. Jimmy Berluti addressed the judges that: “I will not be judged by you!”
