ISPP Model United Nation, 2019

This was genuinely the first time ever I participated in a Model UN in the English language, yet it was one of the most spectacular conferences as well. This experience was full of excitement, challenge, and indeed a success. It was my privilege to represent the Delegate of Nepal in such a formal conference. I was able to meet with other delegates from different academies around Cambodia. 

All the delegates from Liger Leadership Academy

Under the theme of Giving Youth a Voice for 2019, I was a delegate of the Junior General Assembly 2 (JGA2). I believe that this theme had truthfully empowered delegates including me to speak up and share their voice. Talking about this concept, it is significantly crucial for youth to speak their voice in order to make a positive impact on their community. The conference of JGA2 was full of power and strength in which we were all actively involved by asking other fellow delegates questions. Even though it was my first time in English, I felt it was a victorious experience that I gathered all my courage to speak up and shared my voice representing the Delegate of Nepal. 

In the conference, 3 different topics were being discussed by the delegates. All 3 resolutions (toward the topic of equal access to education, moving towards sustainable energy sources, and government censorship of social media) were able to pass in the conference. 

This Model UN conference has lighted me to a new experience in which I had learned a lot of new things. From researching my topics in preparation for the conference to making speeches, and to communicating with other delegates were the skills I learned. This conference made my Model UN journey a lot more empowering and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.

World Robotic Olympiad, Cambodia

“Every girl deserves to take part in creating the technology that will change our world and change who runs it” – Malala Yousafzai

First of all, it was an honor to be the only girl in a team of three to represent in this marvelous worldwide robotic competition. World Robotic Olympiad (WRO) is a truly global competition dedicated to science and technology to give as many young creative people all the opportunities to develop their innovation and problem-solving skills. This competition was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia before the qualification in international competition in Thailand. Despite the little experience we had in the robotics field (since this competition was our second time), the two teams from the Liger Leadership Academy did an extraordinary job in engaging in the competition as an individual who worked hard in the team and thought of taking the skills and experiences rather than winning as a whole. 

The two teams of Liger Leadership Academy

As a member of the team, I appreciated the effort and endeavor they had put in preparation for the actual competition. This competition and the process of teamwork made me came to a realization and an understanding that teamwork is genuinely the heart of great achievement for the team. 

       This is my team

During the competition, my team did our best and we managed to priority the methods that work best for our team. We had only one chance to complete our robot and those moments were filled with excitement and nervousness. Due to the vigorous teamwork we had and our extreme confidence in our robot, that nervousness seemed to fade away on the second rounds of the three rounds. 

This competition didn’t only teach me the skills of technology, science, and teamwork, it brought me to a world that is filled with young creative minds. Most specifically, I had made a lot of new friends from the different academy and shared our robotic journey as adolescents who passionate about robotic. 


On the evening of the competition day, it came for a time to announce the winners. Both of the Liger teams are in Junior Category. What a piece of incredible and phenomenal news, my team qualified for the FIRST PLACE of junior division while the other team qualifies for SECOND PLACE. It is a successful moment for my team and my friend’s team. It was also an honor to receive our achievement trophies from the Secretary of State of Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth, Deputy Director of STEM Cambodia, and more. It is an unforgettable experience of our robotic journey.

China Robotics

Robotics was an exploration where I and the other three students from the Liger Leadership Academy, preparing for the 2019 Guangxi Adolescent Robot Competition and the ASEAN National Adolescent Robot Invitational Tournament that head in Wuzhou, Guangxi, China.

It was a memorable memory for all of us, to be privileged to represent Cambodia to compete with other ASEAN and China teams. We were the first and only team from Cambodia and our team named was NORAKBOT. It was a Lego League which we designed our robot to complete the missions on the board under the theme of Into Orbit (Space). Even though the tournament had some confusion rules, our team could adapt to it quickly and perform the best we could. During the competition, our team put our best to be as flexible as we could. 


It was our honor of representing Cambodia in such an amazing competition. We had one whole day competition and the other days of exploring different places such as the Museum of science and technology and the ASEAN theme amusement park. 

One of the nights during this trip, our team participated in the Culture Exchange where all the countries shared their wonders to each other by having different performances such as dance, sing, and more.

In addition, It’s the way that introduces Cambodia and its culture to other countries in the competition. Especially, our team was honored to hold our Cambodia’s flag in this Science-Technology competition.

How I change Cambodia 2018-2019

Being a fourteen Cambodian girl, that got the scholarship in a marvelous school which is Liger Leadership academy seems as a fascinating opportunity for me. I got the privilege to out of my comfort zone and look to the outside environment of my own society. I am very honor to be born in this place, a place with amazing culture. In addition, by studying at Liger I got to make and generate many many positive impact and changes in my own country through our school based-learning projects. Through the projects, my mind has open and started to think deeply through the areas of each project. In addition, it also create change the people of the ways they look and think of their surroundings, the actions that they are doing every day in their daily life, and their reflection of their environment and country. Majority of those projects had the field trip to the provinces around Cambodia. For some of those, we either had performance or educational presentation to the community. While a few of those, we had the trip to conduct our data, or to o the research method. My projects that are a part of Cambodia are Community Documentary, Traveling Theater, Ecotourism and Robotic. 

Community Documentary was the exploration which we document information in the rural community. I was being a part of helping and keeping important information to get the next generation to know the rural community in my country. Through those documentary, We created our final products for the community such as creating blog, photo book, podcast and video. In addition, during the journey of the documentary we trained some of the community youth from the community, too. We gave such an awesome opportunity to them to hold the camera in their first time and produce stunning picture and video. Moreover, after our documents were finalized we went to the community to share our products and do the presentation of what we have done to the villagers. Especially, there were many people come to our presentation and they were very impressed of our achievements. 

Traveling Theater was a theater exploration where we travel from place to place to perform. Our goal for this exploration was to showcase performances, educational films and play to the rural communities and schools in the provinces around Cambodia by contributed opportunity to get awareness of their outside environment while they are having entertain. Before going on trip, Our team had prepared on setting up the stage depending on the situation of place we are going. We Also learned how to set up the electricity and the speaker.  I would say that This was one of my project that could change Cambodian’s mindset of their surroundings. It changed of how people look at things and treat things in positivity. Especially, our target audiences which were students and villagers were really really inspire and impress of what we were doing while they were having fun. I am really proud of myself and my team of being brave of performed such an in touch plays to all the audience. 

Ecotourism was an exploration which we are planning to create a Community-based ecotourism site in a Kuy Indigenous community in Preah Vihear Province, Cambodia. This year, I spent almost 14 weeks of working on this project. For the first 7 weeks, in order to create this site we needed to do the research on marketing of the project. In particular, our team spreaded the journey of interview the tourists of their interesting toward our site. We also went to the community to do our feasibility study to whether know if the place potential enough for Community-based ecotourism. I hope this project will actually happen one day, because it give such huge impacts on the community. It creates job for local people, by being a tour guide, giving accommodation or homestay to people, ability to show their skills or other. Therefore, it give the advantages to the natural resources, and environment as well. Before, most the villagers in the community are cutting down trees to sell or make coal, hunting for animals… But if the project happen, all of those activities will not going to happen again. 

Robotics was also a project where I and the other three students from the Liger Leadership Academy, preparing for the 2019 Guangxi Adolescent Robot Competition and the ASEAN National Adolescent Robot Invitational Tournament that head in Wuzhou, Guangxi, China. The First Lego League theme for this year is Into Orbit which is related to Space. It was such an amazing experience as a competitor in this competition. There were teams from 4 ASEAN countries including Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippine and many many teams from China. However, There was just one team from Cambodia which is NORAKBOT (my team). It was really honour of representing Cambodia in this competition. It was the way that shown “Cambodian kids also can do it”. It’s the way that introduce Cambodia and its culture to other countries in the competition. Especially, our team was honored to hold our Cambodia’s flag in this Science-Technology competition. 

The four above projects are a part of my changing Cambodia. But there are a lot of projects more that aimed me the step of changing my country. Those changes are start from myself or other peoples and it doesn’t matter much because of how old you are. I believe that those small changes might make a piece of positive change in Cambodia. And I hope those small changes are very benefits to my country and help me to prepared to create greater changes in the future.

Algebra in Math Class (R5)

Algebra is the way in which the letters or even other general symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities. It quite benefits to human daily life because it could play a role of representing other quantities that people are not sure about. First time, It might seem to be complicated for some students as the way it looks, including me. But as you explore future more, you could easily discovers the way to express those problems. In the algebra expression, there are relationship between positive and negative, too. As part of humanity, we usually don’t know the exact quantities of the things. However, as in mathematics, you can replace a letter to represent the the quantity you want to figure it out.

Find the value of y when x=10

y = 9x/5

y = 90/5

y = 8

Exploring through Adobe Photoshop (Round5)

Diversity of skills, basics of technology and multimedia have been discovered throughout the year. It incorporated as individual and teamwork tasks. This year, we discovered many technology and multimedia huge areas such as Adobe tools, photography/videography basics, and Python programming. Since this is the last round of the year, as a learner we chose a topic that we want to cover and learn more about. Through the improvement of the project, I explored my interest in Photoshop, which a fact that I chose this skill to work on. Throughout the journey of working with Adobe Photoshop, I could transfer all of my pictures into the sense of gorgeous. As working on Adobe Photoshop, I decided to work and generate on Ink Smudge Effect. It is the process of putting the ink smudge with some paint brush on the picture. As the limited of time on the previous round of working in Photoshop, I didn’t know much materials yet before I additionally worked on this project. However, after I explored this concepts, I clearly have an idea how exactly Photoshop works. I was learning this with one of my friends and we learned by watching a YouTube Video tutorial of how to create Ink Smudge in Photoshop. As things were going, there were also some challenge that I met. One of them was that, When I and my friend watch the video and practice in Photoshop, We were not really sure about how the function and materials works and why we need them for our photo. But as we tried our best of listen to the instructions and practice in our own, We could figure out and solve all of those problems easily. I think that this project gave a lot of advantages to me on the course of Adobe Photoshop. In addition, by working in this project it makes me to be passionate on Photoshop and edit beautiful photo in my own free time.


Motion & Distance

Can you give some examples of motions? But first of all, lets me give a simple definition of what motion is. Basically, Motion is the act, process of moving, or the change of position. Many many things around you are moving, which means it relates to the process of motion. For example, I ride my bike to my house, it means I am in motion.

Distance : Distance is the length of the route between two points, which are the starting and finishing line. The SI unit for distance is the meter.

(1 m = 3.28ft), ( 1 cm = 0.01 m), ( 1 km = 1000 m)

What is Percentage?

Percentage was a main topic that we focus on in my class this round. In my opinion, percent is an important part of our every life. It relates to the discount in a shop, the charge or interest in the banks, increase in value, commission, etc. For example, after I’ve learned how to calculate percentage, whenever I go to different shops with discount, I know really clearly of how to calculate which of how much the shop has discounted.

Below are some examples of percentage, Please take a guest of the right answers
