Empowering Futures: Miss Universe Cambodia's Voice for Change
Join John Sotima, the 72nd Miss Universe Cambodia delegate, on her inspiring journey as the Voice for Change in the 72nd Miss Universe Voice for Change contest presented by Mouawad and CI Talks!
Quality Education for All
In a heartfelt exploration of her own challenging upbringing, John shares the struggles of being born into a broken family and growing up in an underprivileged household. Education wasn't a given, but her father's unwavering determination made the impossible, possible.
UN Sustainable Development Goals at the Heart
This powerful video aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, addressing the critical issues of Quality Education (Goal 4), Gender Equality (Goal 5), Reduced Inequalities (Goal 10), and Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions (Goal 16). John delves into the UNESCO report highlighting the harsh reality that over 70% of Cambodian women drop out of school before reaching secondary education. Poverty, gender roles, early marriage, and human trafficking create formidable barriers to education for girls.

By actively participating in various charities and projects, she aims to reach out to women and underprivileged children, offering them the support they need. Through her experiences, she sets a real-life example, encouraging others to believe in themselves and prioritize education.
