  The Year 2019, A wonderful year for me to create impacts. I have been involved in a lot of activities and projects by Seniors but almost all of them only impact my surrounding people. During the same year, I was an introvert, I talked only to my friends in class except the facilitator. I also truly understood that I need to express myself in order to spread my impacts to others.

    2019, a year that I worked closely with teacher Bunthan. I and everyone in the team is involved in creating a big impact to a community at Preah Vihear. I set a goal clearly to express myself more in talking also to force myself out of my comfort zone. The Ecotourism project was successful, the impact we made was huge and the villagers truly understood that their village had the potential of being a tourist site. After a few months of contact with the villagers, more and more tourists and students come to learn new things and explore their culture. Those were not our expectations because we believed that our impact only lasted when the project ended but those villagers made it possible that they should continue to show their village potential.

     Those impacts were never our expectations but we impact them to make it possible. This year, at least I have a project that creates a big impact. I will do my best to continue making an impact and lead other people to find their impact for others.

How I Changed Cambodia – 2017/2018

    Making the change in Cambodia is hard for me. I thought of some idea to developed Cambodia. Here is some idea I got want Cambodia to have more technology, my exploration Humans of Cambodia, create a product that reduces trash in Cambodia, and create a Khmer typing tutorial software to help Khmerism keyboard team.

    The first idea is I want Cambodia to have more technology because in the future there is no more paper money or paper to write they will use a lot of technology. And also I think they will learn without going to school cause they will use virtual reality that can see another world with real time so they can study in there with their friend and their teacher.

    The second idea is to to explore about Human of Cambodia because this exploration lets me know a lot of life outside Liger Leadership Academy. I love to hear their quotes and what they say is great for the new generation like me to perform what they say. Although they are old but their quote or what they say is great for all of you.

    The third idea is to create a product that reduce trash in Cambodia. Most of the places in Cambodia there is a lot of trash and they always complain about it but they do nothing with it. So I want to create a product that can turn the trash to something else they want. I don’t have any plan yet to create the product.

    The last idea is to help Khmerism keyboard team and some of the Liger student too. I want to create a Khmer Typing tutorial software for other people to learn Khmerism quickly. Also I don’t know how to type the khmerism keyboard too. So the software can teach me the basic skill of typing the khmerism keyboard.

    Like I said in the introduction Making the change in Cambodia is hard for me but I will try my best to change Cambodia. Also I want to say to the next generation that take care of the country because that is where you born and where you grow up so take care of your country.

Final Project – Multimedia

I have created a website that teach people to code HTML, CSS & Javascript. First I translate everything from the internet that explain about those code language and make lesson from it. Second, I go through my lesson one more time and try to code a wireframe(layout of the lesson) and decided which wireframe do I want to create. Third is try to make my design simple and beautiful so people love it and enjoy learning the lesson. My Website is divided into three parts. The first part is for HTML lesson, the second part is CSS lesson and third part is Javascript lesson.

Not just divide into the three but in the header there is two buttons which is very helpful because they are Code Editor Online and Recommended Software to use. After they learned they can try to use the Code Editor Online and then after they get comfortable they can use the recommended software too.

The Hardest part of this website is to code the code to show on the website like this.

List & Dictionary – Multimedia

This round 4 we learned about list and dictionary. We use list to put a group of things in a variable. Dictionary is used to defined type of variable. To make us understand more about those we go to Trinket.io to practice those. I have choose a project in there that call RPG. You can test it here:

https://trinket.io/embed/python/313dca6ece?#.XKXBYZgzbDc

We use Python dictionary to make room and also item for player. We use a lot of if statement so that the player can interact with the game. One example from there is If the room have monster and you are there then show game over.

Math

In math we learned about measure & value, angles and data analysis. Measure is something to calculate the size amount and more. Value is the amount of things, So in the lesson we learned different units and also we did a project which talk about cooking and the ingredient. We need to measure the ingredient and what value do we need and more. Angles is two rays that come to an vector. We measure angle and also learn about how to x angle. Data analysis is good for us because people use it help them analysis data for their exploration and more. Here is the thing that we learned in the class.

Happiness – English Literacy

In English Literacy, we are learning about happiness. We learn about how we make happiness and how we achieve happiness. Not just learn about happiness I also wrote a poem.

They said “Work Smart Not Work Hard”

Start Thinking Ignore Sweat

I bet most people sweat like dead

Think More Cause It Make You Smart

Rose are Red

Violet are Blue

Think More to make your Mindset Grew

And See yourself blew

Work Smart That’s what You should know

Don’t Tell a lot of facts but folks is good though

 

Multimedia – Coding with Python

For Round 3 I have learn about python code which we can use it to create games and also applications. I have learn a lot of rules and also the way to code it. If else statement is good to learn for beginner because it is simple and we can mess around with conditions.

Not just if else statement we also have for loop which we use it to print loop things. Loop mean again and again. For loop is mostly used to print things again and again with little and easy code.

Outdoor Leadership

I have changed a lot and also not just me, it is everyone. I think that I am lazy but after this exploration I felt like I did a pretty good job of trekking and also helping other people. Before I am a very quiet student but right now my friend can’t even stop laughing because of me making jokes. On the bus I make jokes, while trekking I make jokes, while eating I make jokes and more jokes. This exploration I have learned a lot and not just the trekking stuff also learned about how to help our teammates and other like communication and collaboration.

Traditional Food

Traditional Food exploration is the most fun exploration that i have ever had. At there we learned about the Cambodian Food and Khmer Food, also we study about the khmer cuisine. Not just learn about Khmer Cuisine, we also learned about the story of each restaurant owner. On the first day of our trip we went to Siem reap and interview Mahob which is the restaurant that served Khmer food and other too. On the second day we went to Cuisine wat damnak which they served as a set of food or called as course. On the third day we went to Sugar Palm which served Khmer Cuisine food. My facilitator tell me to make a video about the Sugar Palm restaurant video. So I filmed some footage and the interview. And put together the video and here the video :

Multimedia : Story Telling and Photography

This Round 2 is kind of photography round because I got to learn photography from the exploration and multimedia class. Also not just photography, we also learn about the pixar story structure too. For the Pixar story structure we learned about the basic of making  the story more clear and good. For the photography, we learned about the triangle exposure. The triangle exposure has shutter speed, ISO, and Aperture. Shutter speed is the length of time the shutter is open to allow light in. ISO is how sensitive your camera to light is. Aperture is the size of opening in the lens through which light enters the camera.

Here is the Exposure :
