Phnom Penh – Born on an islet in southern Cambodia, Rithy Thul went to Phnom Penh for the first time when he was 17 years old to get an education.
He managed to gain entry to the Cambodian University for Specialties, where he studied computer skills, while working as a part-time teacher at an orphans organization and living at a pagoda in Phnom Penh’s downtown district.
After two years at university, Thul decided to quit, opting to teach himself English and explore the country by bicycle to gain inspiration.
