Here is my latest story about me and what I am all about.
No SPAM please.
Cambodian American model, nurse, and activist iKandy was born on March 28th 1982 near Washington DC to refugee parents. iKandy’s mother and father attempted to build a better life in the Washington DC area after fleeing Cambodia and barely escaping the genocide of the brutal Khmer Rouge Regime. The stress and unfamiliarity of American ways, customs, and their past took a toll on the migrant family, and throughout her childhood iKandy found herself bearing the brunt of her parents’ rage and suffering.
During adolescence iKandy struggled to find a cultural niche, until 2000 when she graduated high school and declared emancipation from her parents. She quickly learned the hard way that success would only come if she grabbed life by the horns and steered in the direction of her dreams.
After gaining understanding of her nurturing and compassionate side iKandy graduated college with a degree in nursing. In 2006, having a solid education under her belt, iKandy decided to dabble in her dreams and began participating in the modeling industry. By 2008 she had established a solid career, and she moved to New Orleans, after facing many hardships of raising a family on her own, she decided to search for a missing passion and deeper meaning to her life. She soon encountered photographer, C.E Wiley, who taught her how to immerse herself in the entertainment industry and to reach within herself to acknowledge what beauty means. This process of self-exploration and reflection led iKandy to long for an improvement in the lives of future generations of Cambodians and their families. She put her drive and compassion to good use and became a Cambodian Rights Activist.
iKandy strives to use modeling for a greater good, spreading awareness and fostering activism regarding the people and culture of Cambodia. She envisions an optimistic future for her parents’ country, a future where equality is protected, where cultural development is valued, and where freedom of expression is prized.
Within the past year iKandy’s good karma has finally caught up with her. She has been featured on over thirty plus websites, appeared in over seven magazines and Ne-Yo’s music video, and acted in various films alongside Hollywood A-listers Jason Statham, Ben Foster, and Brittany Murphy. Most recently iKandy was selected as a Seagram’s Model, and she is featured in their 2011 calendar. Also her most proudest achievement is to be feature model for Cambodian American singer Jay Chan's "The Final Answer", featured world wide. She is involved with her own project, The Strengthening Cambodian Communities Project (TSCCP) and recently directed and coordinated an events with another non-profit called Nomi Network, to help combat human trafficking on a global and local scale. With her incredible drive, overwhelming compassion, and astonishing beauty there is no doubt that the door to opportunity is only beginning to open. Still iKandy remains humbly excited about what lies to come.
My DREAM - I just want to be successful.
10 things my friends say about me.
TO BE THE MOST FAMOUS ASIAN MODEL IN THE WORLD
WHAT I BRING TO A SHOOT
Myself - Hard working and punctual, great with directions, fun to work with, energetic, professional and I take modeling extremely serious. I've never cancelled a scheduled shoot last minute, but understand special circumstances will arise i.e. weather etc.
WHAT I LOOK FOR
Creative, inspiring and motivated people to collaborate with may it be a photographer or a fellow model. I am EXTREMELY
picky with photographer's quality
of photos. I would like to meet and work with photographers who take their work as seriously as I do. Meaning, their photos, should be edited, clean and crisp quality, and professional.

"I âm not in the business of modeling, just because I think Iâm pretty. I have future aspirations of becoming more than just a model, but a role model, a leader and an entrepreneur. Iâm here to inspire those with hardships to conquer all that life throws at them, and to fulfill their dreams. You have to push yourself to the limits, and for me, there are no limits to success!" -iKandy
