Outreach and Engagement Coordinator
“My “WHY” is to bring those from the margins to the center of the work.” Through the Khmer proverb: “It takes a spider to repair its own web”, Johnny Cheng practices commitment to the youth with the same love and compassion as my own children.
Johnny’s informal beginning as a Credible Messenger began through Khmer in Action, with the goal to bring equity and social justice to the Cambodian community. Recognizing the siloed effort, Johnny’s goal became to join a consortium of like-minded partners to empower all marginalized communities.
As a Credible Messenger ambassador, Johnny truly believes that community change is rooted in healing, and that journey begins within.
