Phodographer Gigi Ackeman in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Fall 2010

Gigi elected to take a GAP year between high school and college and included volunteering at MaDforGood in Siem Reap, home of the famous ancient temple of Angkor Wat.. After her first experience she excitedly emailed “I’m in Cambodia right now and I just used the Dog Meets World printer! I started taking photos and like everyone from the village swarmed around me. It was amazing to watch everyone see themselves in a photo for the first time. I’ll send you the pictures! Thank you for the opportunity to do this!

Way to go young woman with a big heart for the world’s kids.
