In this episode #31 of the Who in the World Podcast, I share part two of my conversation with Kay Kay, live from Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
I was able to travel back to Cambodia last year – one of my favorite countries on earth and I place I lived for a few years – and had the chance to visit Kay Kay at his home for a few beers and a deep conversation about his life.
For those who didn’t get to listen to part one of our talk yet, you can listen here:
And in this part two, we start off when Kay Kay was being bounced around immigration jails in the U.S. until he was deported back to Cambodia, a country he wasn’t born in (Kay Kay was born in a refugee camp in Thailand like so many others), had never visited, knew very few people, and only spoke a little of the language.
Through his monumental struggles in his new homeland
Soon after, Tiny Toones was born, Kay Kay’s non-profit organization that helps poor, disenfranchised, and at-risk kids with education, life skills, and basic care through breakdancing, rapping, graffiti art, and other endeavors.

And thanks for listening and sharing some time with my friend, Kay Kay!
