  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.

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.

Here is the website link :



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


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 :

Geography Book Publishing

Cambodian Geography Book is an exploration that working on finishing up designing of the book in a software called Indesign. The book spent us 1 years to do the research and the designing. Not just researching but we are going out on a trip to other province to find more information. The Design is fun for me because we get to touch new feature in Photoshop and Indesign a lot. I’m the designer of Takeo province the back cover and the spine. It is really cool for me to create spine because I don’t how to measure the spine so I need to learn hard stuff like get the measurement of the book and also estimate the pages so that it fit the spine. My dream in the future is to be a User Interface Designer and I got to design a lot of graphic for the book.

Adobe Indesign
Adobe Photoshop


Multimedia is a lot of things but the most famous one is online archive which is risky to student like us, so Cindy, our facilitator, train us a lot about how to search on the internet safely. After the learning of the Internet Safety. She bring us a new topics “Adobe Software” which some of Liger student know it like me. She doesn’t know much about some of the adobe software so she started to pick some student that know the software clearly to teach the other student in class. After studying Adobe software for one week. We have a homework that required us to us adobe Software to do it and also using our Internet Safety skills to do research about what we want to make. My project is talk about Pixar which is the animation studio. I wonder what they used to make their animation so I made a poster that talk about the software.

Here is My Poster (Click Here) : Pixar


In Liger, We have 1 hour everyday to learn literacy. In the class, We have our lovely teacher named Hannah. This year we started with a topic called “Root Words”. Every Week, She will hand us a paper that is about the root words but in different theme. It is called homework packet.

Here is one of the homework packet:


Also not just the homework packet but we also have more reading about some famous people like William Shakespeare, Mahatma Gandhi and etc. Mostly we read all of this in some website that our teacher assigned like Newsela, Readwork, Actively Learning and etc. One of the cool project that I have done is creating a video that talk about a person that we would like to put in an exhibition. After we filmed and edited. We uploaded to Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a website that we can shared our idea and also to make video for your class assignment.
