I’m Lee….a Colorado native, single mom to seven (four who were adopted), deep-thinking introvert who is passionate about travel, photography, giving back and storytelling for change.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work alongside Damnok Toek in Cambodia and help them to share about the incredible work they are doing with vulnerable children. Working with children has been an integral and important part of my personal and work life. For 10 years, my work was focused on orphaned children in China, creating foster care programs, leading medical trips, and creating my own non-profit which operated in China. My work allowed medically frail orphaned children to get the medical care they needed, education and a loving environment where they could thrive.
I have seen first hand the difference that can be made in a child’s life if they are given hope and opportunity. Damnok Toek’s focus on street children, children with disabilities and trafficking victims is giving these children just that. Spending a few weeks by their side, hearing their heart and seeing their work first hand will provide the perfect backdrop to share their story. When you combine powerful imagery with storytelling, and share your message with the world, it’s impactful. …something I have experienced first hand. So to play a small role in sharing their work, feels incredible and an opportunity I am so grateful for.
