I am 20 years old this year. Tripily helps me to grow and mature mentally as well as help me to gain more knowledge about the history and culture behind Cambodia country. If people were to ask me what I would do next after Tripily, I think it would be to start my own food/travel blog but the future is still unpredictable and one thing I have learnt is that when people make plans, the gods laugh. So I am content to just enjoy what life has to offer, all the bad and the good parts equally.
