It is four o'clock in the afternoon. She sits in the classroom next to the temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia, just a few miles from the grandeur of Angkor Wat. She glows in the afternoon sun as it streams in through the window. The student with the "Bright Girl" backpack is the only one who is lit.
Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia
