Let me introduce myself

My name is Khem Vansinin and my nick name is Sydney. I am a 24 years old female. I was born in Kg Speu Province. I am currently living in Phnom Penh with my aunt. My mom is a teacher and my dad is a farmer. I have two siblings; an older brother, Vanda and a younger sister, Thavy.

I work for
Community Information Web Portal Project, Open Forum of Cambodia. My position there is a Web Information Collector. My job consist of many tasks, some are as follows; collecting information and document from government institutions, NGO’s and international organizations, libraries and research institutes, websites, and print media. I definitely enjoy my job because I am able to promote use of information and communication technology by Cambodians nation wide users for research, networking and last but not least the exchange of information.

I am pursuing a Diploma Course in Journalism, Cambodia Communication Institute, Phnom Penh. It's an evening class. I successfully graduated in a Bachelors Degree program in Business Management in June of 2003. I’ve also graduated in Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in 2002.

I am an out going person and have many hobbies and interests. A couple of my favorite sports are basketball and badminton. I also like to listen to music on my spare time. One of my favorite foods is fried meats and Coca would be my favorite drink. Often on my spare time I watch TV, surf the Web, and read novels. My most favorite hobby would be shopping. I would classify myself as a person who loves to shop. I would never be bored of shopping. I just love to spend money on clothes, cosmetic, and as well vacations. Often times I spend my spare time with my friends and we usually play badminton and basketball.
