SOKUN’S STORY

I’m 33 years old and I’ve been working at Banteay Srey for 3 years already. I was recently promoted to spa supervisor. I teach massage and spa skills and  supervise new trainees in cleaning and maintenance. I also still give spa treatments and I know I’m especially good with massage.

I had trouble with people management when I was first promoted but I get support with any difficulties and I feel that I have grown a lot. I’m proud of the spa and I enjoy making sure it is always clean.

I had an OK time growing up though there were all the usual difficulties such as sickness in the family and not enough money. I had to leave school at the start of grade 10 so I could help out. I got married at 19. I was lucky that I knew my husband quite well. I have an 11 year old son and a 13 year old daughter and both are in school. My husband is a truck driver at a cement factory.

I used to work at a pepper plantation. I worked with a lot of women sorting out the peppercorns one by one to pick out the bad ones. It was an ok job but tiring.

My eyesight wasn’t good enough and the work was only seasonal so I needed to find another job.

I first heard about Banteay Srey from a friend. I’ve learned a lot since I’ve been here, like how to give massage, scrubs, facials, and hair cuts.

I like that Banteay Srey is only for women, and that all of the guests that come here are women too. My husband wouldn’t let me come to work here if I had to give treatments to other men, so I’m really happy to have a good job that he approves of. I had some difficulties with childcare at first but Channy and Freya agreed to give me a long lunch break to go home and cook for my children.

I want to keep working at Banteay Srey to improve my English and Computer skills so that I can help my kids with their studies. I’m happy to be earning a good salary to help support my family.
