Last year we had Outdoor leadership exploration which we learn about outdoor skills and here is the link to what I wrote at that time  http://chetra.ligeracademyblog.org/2019/02/13/outdoor-leadership-exploration/. I was very lucky to be able to experience this. As a change agent, we created Outdoor program exploration which we create the program for Cambodia youth to share our knowlnge to all of them.  

In this program we have out impact statement which state “To empower Cambodian youth to be outdoor leaders and environmental stewards by introducing them to natural spaces, raising awareness of conservation threats, and nurturing the passion and skills needed to positively impact their communities.” 


Our Goals:

  1. Participants will be exposed to natural spaces in their provinces they may not have known about before and experience them in a way that encourages environmental stewardship
  2. Participants will learn backcountry survival, leadership, and teamwork skills including trip planning and preparation; leave-no-trace policies; travel; camping; risk management; wilderness medicine and emergency first-aid training; group leadership and facilitation; and self-awareness through challenge by choice and calculated risk-taking


  1. Participants will learn how to observe the natural world around them and develop an appreciation and wonder for natural spaces in their own province


  1. Participants will feel empowered to become environmental leaders in their school communities by sharing their knowledge with peers and creating sustainable solutions to environmental problems (planting trees, picking up trash, reducing waste, etc.)


  1. Participants will be challenged to step outside of their comfort zones and build self-awareness by interacting with new people and adapting to new environments and situations



  1. Participants will be encouraged to break down gender stereotypes and barriers by actively supporting female participation in sports and outdoor activities 
  2. In working with the Ministry, we hope to make outdoor leadership a more formal part of the government curriculum so similar programs may be implemented in schools around Cambodia

There are many challenges for us to plan out what are we going to teaches and how will our workshop plan look like. We had created, make changes, try it out and do our best to make the workshop work as possible. 

In the end, I believe that this project will last long and I also be able to share my experience being an outdoor leader to others youth. Hopefully, they get all of these things and make the positively impact to their communities.

Multimedia Round 5

In this term, we didn’t learn new things in class but we took back the old experience to explore or learn more about it independently. We only have one week to work on this task so we need to find work independently by using any app or coding to do any project that we want to study. I worked on Photoshop because there are many more things to explore on. Adobe Photoshop (PS as a short name)  is a  graphics editor developed and published by Adobe for Windows and macOS. It was originally created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll. PS is a really cool app to edit any pictures because it got all the functions that we need, as there a lot of functions so no one will know all of it. To create or edit pictures in photoshop I meet a lot of struggle finding the tools and functions to edit any pictures.  I always research, asking my friend and follow the instructions on Youtube when I have this struggle. 

The project that I work on in this class is the neon style which is a famous style to edit any portrait picture that includes the frame, glow and drawing to make the picture look fancy. I used Youtube as instruction. I look at some sample of the neon style picture to created but I don’t copy them. It was really difficult for me because it uses lots of steps and I also need to draw,  which I’m not really good at drawing. It the first time for me to do this style so it new and hard but after I know how to edit this I start to edit this style faster in other photos. The picture that I edit is just a normal one so I want to create other neon styles that look more advanced.

And here are the pictures that I created

Math Round 5

This year we have been learning a lot of math that use in our daily life like Fractions, decimals and percentages, coordinate plane and rate problem… It really important to our daily life because we use these problems to figure out somethings that we see in our life. Fraction, decimals and percentage are likely similar to each other because in our daily life we see it when a store is lowing the price of its product like 15% off. The coordinate plane is which show us the map of places where something are located like my house is at -9, 3 in the map. Rate problem is difficult to define what we use in real life and basically, it goes like this (It takes 46 minutes for 10 people to paint 3 walls. How many minutes does it take 4 people to paint 6 walls?)

In this class, we use Khan Academy to practice and it like our homework to do the task because Khan Academy has programs that state every lesson of Math and other subjects. It really to be in this class because we gotta be working in teams, do the activity to review on quizzes and Kahoot that all of us can participate. And one of the biggest quotes is “Make the most of your learning”. It means a lot of things to me like to gain my knowledge, try hard in learning, try my best in learning, try to do your homework on time and make sure I really focus in class. That is not all yet “Make the most of your learning” also mean to collaborate and help classmate to because everyone always finds struggle and they always needs support so collaboration state in “Make the most of your learning”. To make the most of my learning continue I will do the things that I list on the top and I will research more about things that I learned and try my best in learning.

How To Be Happy When You are Sad

Everyone feels sad sometimes, just like everyone else, feel joyful, angry, proud and plenty of other emotions. Everyone has feelings, and those feelings are always changing. Sadness is a natural human emotion. How sad you feel can depend on the situation that’s causing you to have the sadness and how you’re coping with it, like a quote said “Tears come from the heart and not from the brain” Some sad feelings last only a moment, some last longer, it depends, but when sad feelings go away, the happiness will take back their place in you. Sad feelings can’t take over your mood or ruin your day. You can do things to help yourself feel better by take action or think about what you want to do to make yourself happy. Here are some positive ways make yourself better when you having sadness put yourself in a good mode, get support and be positive.                                           



  • Put yourself in a good mood


Do everything that you like to do, for example, playing video games or sport, riding a bike, dancing, running, taking a walk, drawing, listening to music, reading, spending your precious time with the people who can make you feel happy, or even laugh out loud by yourself! Even when you’re sad, think of the good things about yourself, think about what you want to do on your holidays…etc. In the article called “YOU CAN BUY HAPPINESS, IF IT’S AN EXPERIENCE”, stated that “people gain more joy from the experiences they purchase than the products or go to a ski trip with friend or family will make you achieve happiness, according to a study published Tuesday in Psychological Science.” So if you just think about things that you want to do, happiness will replace your sadness. Remember that you have your own choice to do things that you like in order to get away from your sadness.


  • Get support


Everyone needs support when they feel down, no matter you’re kid or adults, you always need support. The people in your life who believe in you and who care about you (like parents, best friends, and teachers) can comfort you when you feel sad. They can help you work out a problem or help you think of happier things to get your mind off the sadness. The sadness is in your mind, and if you tell this to someone you close with it might help you release your stress from your brain. Share your story to someone you close with so they can share their care and love about you because Love has powerful healing properties to make people feel better.


  • Be positive


Even if you’re sad, think of good things about yourself or your situation. Believe in yourself, keep thinking that everyone always makes mistakes and it can lead us to have the sadness. Think about what you can do and how things can get better. If you didn’t get something you wanted, think of something else that can make you happy. There’s always something interesting for you to look for it! Like a quote from Brainyquote, it stated “Belief in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You gotta keep going” Just think, positive and believe in yourself so no one will bring you down.

Maybe being really sad helps us fully appreciate the real things in life. Don’t judge yourself for crying or feeling down. Just getaways of being sad, and then get back to the sweetness. Take out the sadness of your mind by doing things that you want independently and confidently. Learning to deal with sad feelings if you don’t want your day to be worst, be positive and believe in yourself to make you happy.

Technology/Multimedia round 4

This round we focus on Python programming and the lesson that we learned this round is Function, List and Dictionary. In this class, we have been focusing on python a lot but It really hard for me to learn because python use it owns language to write code, but I don’t give up I try to ask the question and even though research so I can understand about more python language. In this class, we using trinket.io to write python code and we use Codeclub to work on python challenge and learn by following the steps of the instruction that Code club had written for us. Nowadays, I got stuck a lot but I am doing great because as a programmer, always get the error so we just need to figure out other ways to get it right. We do have a lot of things.

Humans of Cambodia

Humans of Cambodia is the exploration that getting people life story and to do that we interview a lot of people. Their story isn’t simple we ask them the question about the sadness or happiness other question about their life that can express their feeling to other people to feel like them. We also take pictures of them and write a description about their story and post it in our blog. I have been interview a lot of people but not all of them will share their story because of it their personal. I did learn a lot about writing people story into a short description that can describe everythings, edit pictures for the blog and the skill of approach people to feel comfortable to share their story.

This exploration has to go out a lot because we need to go and interview people in different places because we want to get different lifestyle and different story that we can get. I can see that different places that we go we can get a lot of differents story. I feel like people who live in the place that doesn’t develop they love to share their story to us to remembers how hard is their life but for those who live in the develop place their doesn’t seem open and they always igneous and say “I’m busy now”. Only a few people who live in the develop places wanted to share because they also have a hard time for the past until they get rich nowadays.


I really love this exploration because I love to listen to people story and I assume that people will understand each other well, of their past and their story. And at the end, our team had made a blog that contain all the people story that we got.

And here is our website: http://humansofcambodia.ligeracademyblog.org/


This picture we took it with the social workers of CCF and they lead us to interview with people who got their house burn

Math round 4

In math class this round we focus a lot on the percentage which is an important lesson for our daily life. In real life, you can find the percentage when there a discount in some store like the price is $56 and the discount is 40% $22.4.  In mathematics, a percentage is a number or ratio that represents a fraction of 100. It is symbol  by “%” and we can simply as “percent” or fraction. 50% is equivalent to the decimal 0.5, and the fraction is 1/2. We do have a lot of fun is this class because we always do activities, working in the team, playing Kahoot or Quizzes which is students favorite website to review what we have learned.

STEM round 4

This term we are excited to spend time in STEM class. We got a new schedule for stem which Monday is reading day, Tuesday is the experiment, question or research more, Thursday is my favorite because we got to do the experiment or play quizzes or kahoot which is everyone favorite things to do, and Friday is the quiz day. The lessons we have learned is Acid and Bas. A special property of acids and bases is their ability to neutralize the other’s properties. So their both are nearly in everything that we use everyday life such as, toothpaste, lemons tea, vinegar, soup, and other many more things. We also did an experiment with acid and bases and the reaction was really cool because the reaction was changing the color, temperature, and its shapes. My team was facing a problem because we were read the instruction but we did it differently because we were confusing so it gives us the wrong result. It was the small experiment so it doesn’t explode but if we did the bigger one we may get hurt, so it my experience that I should follow the step carefully. The coldest reaction is when we take lemon juice mix with bleach cup and it starts to have a lot of bubbles and its flows to the top and when I try to feel the temperature it was very cold.
