Saifuddin works as a freelance video editor. He is also undertaking many personal projects one of which is very personal to him: documenting the stories of the horrific genocide of his people (Cham Cambodians). At the moment he is in the works of pursuing his dream of helping launch a studio production and distribution house. In his free time he runs outdoors rain or shine!
What about life inspires you?
We all journey through life trying to find what motivates and inspires us to lead a good life. I found my inspiration through the dreams of aspiring children whose living conditions hinder such dreams.
Why did you choose to volunteer with GiveLight Foundation?
I was hired to produce GiveLight’s Dream of Africa video, while knowing very little of GiveLight. But the passion, joy, and conviction of the GiveLight volunteers who I had the pleasure to interact with left an indelible mark on me. I subsequently visited the GiveLight Cambodia home, and the moment I asked each GiveLight child about their future goals I knew GiveLight was the organization I could devote my life to.
How do you help make a difference by doing what you do here?
I am helping GiveLight with editing its digital media content. I hope to narrate GiveLight’s inspiring stories through strong visuals and memorable voices and sounds.
