Unsung Hero: Teacher | Photograph by Jeff Kennel (@jeffdkennel)
“The strength it takes for a woman in Cambodia to become a computer teacher is astounding,” writes Your Shot photographer Jeff Kennel. “Boys learn to see women as leaders in technology, and not just as wives or mothers or cooks. Girls see a role model, a living example that they can do anything they set their mind to. These small steps are what bring change to society.”
Inspired by the @natgeochannel series, “The Long Road Home,” that relives the ferocious ambush the American First Cavalry Division endured in Sadr City, Iraq in 2004, this @natgeoyourshot is curated by @natgeo photographer Matt Moyer (@mattmoyerphoto). #YourShotPhotographer
