Lesly lotha dig­i­tal man­ager

Lesly joined South­east Asia Globe this year to over­see and re­vamp its dig­i­tal strat­egy. With her back­ground in com­mu­ni­ca­tions, she went to work with the In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists Asia-Pa­cific and the Walk­ley Foun­da­tion in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia, be­fore mov­ing back to her na­tive In­dia and work­ing as a dig­i­tal me­dia con­sul­tant.

She moved to Cam­bo­dia in 2017 to work with ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties as a com­mu­ni­ca­tions and mul­ti­me­dia man­ager for a lo­cal NGO. When her con­tract was up, she knew she wasn’t ready to part ways with the King­dom, but was ready to get back to jour­nal­ism – which brought her to the Globe team.

“I am ex­cited to be work­ing with such a dy­namic group of peo­ple who share the same en­thu­si­asm about news, in­no­va­tions in me­dia and the lat­est trend­ing hash­tags,” says Lesly, who has es­tab­lished Twit­ter as a sec­ond home.

Out­side of work, Lesly can be found read­ing books (Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea is an old favourite), go­ing on “photo walks” of Phnom Penh neigh­bour­hoods and dis­cov­er­ing fresh de­sign tricks in Pho­to­shop and Light­room.
