Khmer MUN

This is my first time to attend in Khmer MUN. I think this is the first Khmer MUN ever in Cambodia. I’ve been doing a lot of research to find the solution to the topic. I was the delicate of myanmar and the topic was about “ woman could be a leader”.

Being the delicate of representing Myanmar was awesome because Myanmar is a country that strongly believe that woman could be a leader. We all tried hard to find solution to the topic and help to solve real problem by discussion. In order to find great solutions to the topic, I needed to work with other delicates and working on each other resolution. On the other hand, this event could helped me to improve my speaking skill, as well as researching skill and working with other delegates. I also could know some informations about other countries, too.

Publishing Geography Book

I and my friends were working on publish a book about geography in Cambodia. It is challeng to create an book and it is a enormous task to do. As a good author, there are many important duties to do. We need to work hard, doing research, trip or interview. We need to ensure that the sources are reliable and write in a good process in order to make the readers easy to understand. We divided into four regions. I am in a group in region four which working on northeast of Cambodia. In our trip, we went to four provinces to collect information.

  • At Ka Chanh waterfall, Ratanakiri province

We went to Ratanakiri, kratie, stung treng, mondulkiri province. These province are very far away and I was my first time.  In each province, we went to many places such as temples, waterfalls, mountains, forest, or departments of culture and fine art. The purpose was to create a book called Cambodian Geography book to share to the students in government schools or people who interesting in geography. It took us one year to publish this book. In this book, we included the information about the five theme of geography, provincial name and historical statues in each province and more.

I’ve learned many many concepts from this such as teamwork, writing and interview skills, and a lot more. Through this big mission, I am very proud of myself because I’ve created a big changes in my country by publishing a book which could provide advantages to the government students and people all over the world to know more about Cambodia which a part of creating impacts, especially in education system.

Robotics Exploration & Robotics Competition in Singapore

This is my first time to be a part of robotics exploration. Our goals were to learn how to create a wonderful robot and come up with a great idea of problems and solutions of water to join FLL robotics competition. FLL stands for the words First Lego League which is a robotics competition that challenges kids to think like scientist and engineers.

During  this competition, teams will choose and solve a real-world problems and program robot using Lego Mindstorm technology to solve a set of missions in the robots game. There were two teams from Liger. My team’s name is Nerd 2 and there are five people including me in my group. We worked hard as a team and tried our best in this competition. We worked hard on researching, coding and design robot. We tried our best to do it but our goal was to get experience. Win or lose was not important for us.

It was our first time so our robot was just simple but it needed to be creative of making it’s head because we did different missions. This year the topic of the first Lego League competitions is hydrodynamic which is about water. We did the research about the problem and solution about water to do  a presentation. Our teams came up of problem and solution about arsenic that is a real problem that Cambodia is facing.

On 27, 02, 2018, it had a opportunity to go to other country and get a great opportunity to compete with other teams from different countries. I went to Singapore. It is a developed country and I got to explore new different things. I hope that in the future Cambodia will be the same as Singapore. On the first day, when I arrived at the airport, I looked around and saw many great things such as tall buildings, sky train, designing of road, garden, houses , transportation and those things are very unusual things that I see everyday.

I and one of my other friend got to stay with a host family in Singapore. I stayed with Asa’s family for five days. They were very friendly and I played with their children,too. In addition, I spent a very wonderful time with them. Staying with hosting family helped me to know t about people’s life in other country​​ and to flexible in situation. In the second day, we prepared our robot and let the robot friend different missions.

  • During the Competition

The third day was the competition day. There were many people and teams came from other countries join this competition. There were over an hundred teams. That means I was so proud of Cambodia that join this competition and I was also excited to represent Cambodia. When we were competing, our robot worked well and we communicated very well in each other in the group. Something could not compare to my feeling at that time, I was very very nervous but I could do it. The other part of the competition was presenting. We presented our idea really well to the judges and the judges were happy to see our idea. The idea was about the arsenic water problem which is a problem that is facing in Cambodia.  Later on, my team went to the final round. My feeling was mixed feeling condition like nervous and happy. But in the third round, I felt normal and simple. Trip to Singapore, I visited many places. I went to botanic garden with my hosting family and there were beautiful flowers, birds and trees. I also went to the museum and learned many interesting history.

In conclusion, this robotics exploration helped me to learn many many things and make changes in our country too. I could represented my country in the competition and make other country to know more about Cambodia and also present Liger. In addition, I and my team could solve the water problem the face in the country.

Technovation,First place of National Pitch

I don’t have much  experiences about coding, creating an app, business, marketing or even lack of ideas about all these before  I participated in Technovation. Technovation is a program for girls to learn to create an app in order to solve the problems appearance in the community. It is my first time to join Technovation. In the same way, I highly obtain benefits of participating in this program.

It is not easy at all to work on 12 weeks to learn to code, business model or marketing plan. Technovation allows teams of girls to create an app with an great idea to help the community or society. It took me about one night to decide to join Technovation because the first time I thought that it is very very difficult to create an app. I thought in myself and later on I decided to participate in Technovation because I want to try new things.

In my team, there were five people including me. Our team’s name is Five Infinities and our app is MEP Center. Mep Center is an app to let users who are suppliers ( fixer) and customers (service receiver) in mechanical, electricity and plumbing field communicate with each other. We help the suppliers who do not have enough works can find works to do and customers can find and get to know more suppliers easily.

We have created a lot of function to ensure the quality and to make sure our app is convenient to use. When I decided to try new things, there are many good results to me. If we just do or try the thing you already know, so you don’t get or learn anything. My team passed the semi final and have the opportunity to join National pitch. In the national pitch, we went on the stage and pitched our app to the judges and audience. My team felt a little nervous but later we felt confident. As a consequent, My team won the First place of National Pitch Technovation Cambodia, going along with prices.



I am very very happy about Technovation because my team and I could create an app to help our community and we are a part of Changing Cambodia. In this program, I am very thankful to the mentors, supporters and all the people who were helping us. In addition, I felt very proud of my team and hard teamwork for receive this achievement. The other thing is that I could learn about creating app, doing business, or marketing.

As a participant in Technovation and created an app, I positively believe that girls could code and create app just like boys. Finally, I encourage all the girls to believe in themself, try new things and do anything they like without thinking about gender.

These are the news that talked about our team.

English Literacy

Every day, at the beginning of the class, we always have daily affirmation. It is the positive statement declaring specific goals. All the students repeated the affirmation from the teacher. I think doing affirmation guidances me to clean my mind from the negative thoughts and replace them with the positive and encouraging ones.

Every week, we have a homework packet assignment which contains a list of ten words. Those words are the root words from either Latin and greek. this assignment consists of exercises and worm up that certainly related to the words. After we hang our homework back to our teacher, she will gives a test from those ten words.  

This round the theme in literacy class is the history of english language and etymology which is also related to the history of english. The questions that we are focusing on are how has English evolved over time, how does language connect or disconnect us as a human race and related to socioeconomic status and more. After I know some of the information of English history, I feel that I know how it has evolved over time until now and I feel more comfortable in myself which I could share them to the people around the world.


This year, in STEM class we focus on Physical science, it seems interesting, isn’t it? Absolutely, that is true about Physical science. It is related to matter and energy which included chemistry and physic.

We’ve learned about matter, mass, physical and chemical property. Matter is defined as anything that has mass and volume. Mass is amount of matter in a substance or object which is commonly measure with the balance. Physical property is something that we can see, absorb, measure without change. Chemical property is the property of the matter that can be measure or absorb only when changing from and become something else.

We also learned about atom. In a small group, we did a research about neutron, electron and proton. The goal was to understand the content in order to make a teaching lesson to all the classmates.  In my group, we had many activities about the lesson. I could know more about neutron, electron and proton. Proton is something that carry positive charge in an atom, electron is something that carry negative charge in an atom and neutron is something that carry no charge.


As the first term of the year, in the first week our teacher told us to create a poster about encouragement words to hang in the classroom. The statement was about “Make the most of your learning”. It was a really great statement in my opinion. Whenever I looked at the wall and see that poster, it is always motivate and inspire me to work hard, listen to my teacher and make the most of all of my learning and do my best with my learning.

This term in math class, we’ve finished half the workbook already. I’ve learned about more calculations with whole numbers, fractions including addition, subtraction, multiply and division. Throughout these lessons, we did many many activities, also the exercise including word problems in the textbook and workbook. On of my favorite unit was about more calculation with whole numbers because in order to calculate the expression with different operation signs, we need to do it by rules which means not to plus, time,subtract, or divide one by one from the left. The rules says that do the multiplication or division from left to right, then addition or subtraction from left to right. You can see one of an example here!!

88 – 8 × 6 ÷ 3 – 80 ÷ 8 × 7

88 – 48 ÷ 3 – 10 × 7

88 – 16 -70


One of a website that we use during our class is Khan Academy. I think it is very useful and convenient to use of our learning. Our teacher often add assignments to us in Khan. In my free time, I often do the exercise and assignments on Khan because if we don’t know of the answer, there are videos for us to watch.


This term is my first term to study multimedia. We’ve learned about how to research that using technology and digital tools effectively and efficiently, InDesign, Photoshop, Lightroom, and introduction to programming. I have improved a lot about the multimedia skills that I just mentioned above.

On the first week, we learned about researching skill. Researching skill helps us to find the answer we want easily and sometimes it may guide to the answer you may or may not expect. I could more some useful tips to do research such as using specific words that are unique to your topic, using quotation marks to search for specific phrases and using And, Or, Not.

Later after we learned about InDesign, Photoshop and Lightroom, I created a one page poster in InDesign. In that poster, it included an image I edited in Photoshop and an image on Lightroom. My topic in the poster was about Eiffel tower. I have been researching about that. By the way, I could learn about the Adobe skills and researching skills.

Edited in Lightroom (Eiffel Tower in France)
Edited in Photoshop (Eiffel Tower in France)

On the last week, We learned about algorithm which one of the most interesting concepts about this class. We did different activities throughout this course. Algorithm is the instructions that help to calculate the answer to a problem with a limited of time by using efficient formula. An example of an algorithm we worked on in class this week, is about n(n+1)/2. It is the algorithm of solving the problem that was about finding the sum of 1 to 200 which means find the sum of adding 1+2+3……+200.n stand for the biggest number of the problem had given which is 200. We take 200 plus 1, time with 200 and then divide by 2. Then, we will the find the answer.

Another algorithm that we’ve learned is about divide and conquer which help to calculate the answer to an problem. For example, when the whole number we want to solve might be too big, so we need to break it up into equal two parts and then divide it into half and half again. So that we can find an algorithm to our problem.

Khmer Literacy

In Khmer class, we learn many things which related to Khmer language such as about writing in Khmer, description, poetry, listening, reading and more. I have plenty of improvements on this class including spelling and structure of writing. Learning Khmer is very very important for me because I am Cambodian so I need to know and learn about my own culture.

In Khmer class, one of the project we did is about writing poetry. There are many types of poetry in Khmer and in which poem we have different positions of rhyming words. I’ve accomplished a poem which is the style called “ Puchung Lilea”. I’ve written over 40 lines on this poem. Throughout this work, I’ve learned many concepts from it such as how to write, putting emotion to the real situation and more. The main idea of my poem is about education, how it influence to your future, yourself and your country and some of the encouragement words to work hard in life. I hope that this poem is a part that could guidance people act in affirmative ways.

Community Documentary Exploration

  • With the view of the rice field

Community Documentary was a exploration which documents information in rural communities. The goal was to documents the necessary informations because we want next generation to see what have been changed and developed in their community. We have four products to the communities such as creating blog, photo book, video and podcast. We collaborated with the World Renew’s youth which is the organization that helps to develop the communities that we are working on. We interviewed many villagers and we focus on different categories such as development, economic, human life, history and more. We went to four villages in Kampong Speu province.

During our exploration, we went to the villages three times. The first time, we went to absorb and think of what we want to do as our products which was pre trip.  I feel that the community that I went is very strange from mine because it is a rural area. We interviewed many people and I figured out that their life is different and more difficult that the people in my community.  At night time, we spend our time in Camkids with is a school. We did networking, communicate, sharing experience and play some games with the Camkids students.The second, we went to interviewed people again about each different themes which we have planned. And the third, we went to share our products and do the presentation about what we have done for the villages. There were many people come to watch our presentation and they impressed about what we did.

As a part of this explorations, I’ve learn about how how people live in rural village, creating blog skill, the experience working with world Renew’s students, presentation skill and collaboration in the group. I feel very comfortable in this exploration and learned many many things including skills and experiences during the exploration. During the trip, I could know more about the people life and the way they live in rural communities. I am proud of myself of being a part of helping and keeping the important information to get the next generation to know in the communities in my country.
