Girl Rising – Sokha’s Story. Written by Loung Ung and voiced by Alicia Keys, Sokha’s chapter is one of nine remarkable stories from the Girl Rising film. Sokha was a Cambodian child of the dump; orphaned and forced to pick through garbage to survive. But, through a series of miracles, Sokha finds her way to school and, like a phoenix, rises to become a star student on the brink of a brilliant and once unimaginable future.

Girl Rising Trailer: from Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, award-winning Documentary Group, Vulcan Productions and Intel Corporation comes Girl Rising – an innovative feature film about the power of education to change a girl — and the world.


Loung Ung was only 7 years old when the soldiers came and took her father. Later, separated from her mother and siblings, she was forced from child labour camp to child soldier camp, living under unbearable conditions and far too young to make sense of the horrors of war. Although she survived, the war raged on in her mind… until she made a very difficult choice.
