Can you tell us about yourself?
Hello, my name is Ritha, I’m from Banteay Meanchey province.
I work in the IT department at Thalias Hospitality’s headquarters in Phnom Penh. My duties include providing tech support for all staff and maintaining Thalias Hospitality Group’s internal network as well as devices like printers, scanners, and computers.
What does International Women’s Day represent to you?
International women’s day is very important for me and all women in the world. It is a day to remember that women have the same rights as men do.
Do you have any advice for a young woman who wants to start a similar career?
I would like to encourage all women who study Information Technology and want to work in that field to stay focused and don’t be afraid to do what you like and what you want.
Men sometimes think women do not have the capacity to work in IT. So you must believe in yourself and ignore those negative thoughts that women are not suitable to study in this field. Women can do the job just as well as men. We can do it!
Happy international women’s day. Thank you.
