When Channy Laux was 13, the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia. From 1975 to 1979, Channy endured starvation, horrendous working conditions, sickness and repeated separations from her family. Not knowing a word of English, she arrived to Lincoln Nebraska as a refugee and began attending high school, then earned her undergraduate degree and then a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics. Now, Channy works with schools and organizations to inspire refugees in adapting to their new country. Her passion for introducing Cambodian cuisine to her community led her to found Angkor Cambodian Food. She is also the award-winning author of Short Hair Detention, her memoir of surviving the Cambodian genocide. If you have any questions for Channy, let us know in the comments and we will ask her live! ⁣
