My name is Sun Sreytouch. I was born in Kampong Speu province, I got disability on my right leg caused by polio disease when I was one and a half years old. I have 6 siblings (3 female) and am the fifth child in the family.

As a girl with disability, Srey Touch experienced discrimination from neighbors and classmates as they always used inappropriate words to her which were hurtful. Every time she walked out of the house, everyone looked at her like a stranger and said, “how pity is she as she is a girl with disability”. When she was young, because of this she didn’t want anyone see her legs, she always wore long skirts.
