Trang Lam First Permanent Forum Experience at the UN in 2011

Trang Lam from New Zealand attended her very first Permanent Forum at the United Nations in 2011. She did a fantastic job delivering a speech on behalf of the Khmer-Krom Federation Youth Committee.

“This was my first time doing something major like this; I've never been to an event to talk about your Human right or the rights of our people before. All I've done back in Nelson (New Zealand) is volunteers to help out in the Committee, One thing that People need to know about me is that I am painfully shy around a lot of people I don’t know that worse when I have a give a speech in front of anyone. Therefore, the one thing that I learned while I was over there was how to get over my shyness and just go for it.” Trang was asked to list some things she learned while attending the UNPFII and said “What I was doing at the UNPFII was very important, I was there to stand up for people that was afraid to do so themselves, or just cannot be there.
