Lim Sreyleang: Graphic Design
“If you have something you want to do, fight for it, don’t listen to the people who tell you no. Follow your heart and you will be a success.”
Meet Lim Sreyleang, a young woman from Battambang with a determination and creative energy that quickly become evident when she speaks. She was part of the first class to graduate from Phare Ponleu Selpak’s 3-year professional program in the Visual and Applied Arts School. Now, 23 year old Sreyleang, or Leang, is teaching at the school and working as a designer for the boutique on campus.
The Visual and Applied Arts School, or VAAS for short, began its ambitious professional program in late 2013, and Leang was one of the first students to sign up. In July 2016, Leang received a diploma from VAAS and began her professional career. But getting to that point was not so easy.
