In 2016 I was awarded a National Geographic Grant, becoming an Explorer.

This project was supported by the National Geographic Society and the National Geographic Young Explorer Program. This is a program to help support young professionals in a project that could help launch them early in their careers. Untold Cambodia was made possible due to this program, being entirely funded and supported by the NGS.
