[Ambassador to Cambodia William E. Todd] When our democracy was young, a nation ruled
by the people was a revolutionary idea.
As our democracy grew, we became more and
more inclusive, so that
today there are opportunities for everyone,
no matter how they are born.
When I was born, it was hard for anyone to
believe that someday an
African American would be president or a female
would be the Secretary of State.
I’ve been learning as much as I can about Cambodia,
and in your country I see a democracy that is also young.
I really want to hear from Cambodians in all provinces
and to talk to you about the things that our countries can
I will also invite young Cambodians to the Ambassador’s
Youth Council, where I hope you will help me learn more about
your country and what you see for its future.
Keep checking our Embassy Phnom Penh Facebook page,
where I’ll be posting all of the details.
I’ve been working hard to learn Khmer,
and I’m looking forward to meeting you in Cambodia!
