Feeding the World’s Growing Billion, Air Quality and Pollution Control are hot topics that are being discussed for solutions everywhere in the world. Liger have also taken the topic and present in a slightly distinctive way by debating the topics in all Khmer format following the Model United Nations (MUN) process. Everyone would be a representation of a country which is known as “delegate”. I was the delegate of France. It was a new experience doing MUN and was stressful due to the time limit we got, but we did it so well. I found the experience could benefit me in a variety of ways: I can use more advanced Khmer words, but at the same time, I could also learn about the country I represented and be able to improve my public speaking skill. I like the experience and I am really looking forward to more of this next year. Below is a link to our first Khmer MUN preview that was created by my friend, Samady Sek. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91mvZkWdTi0&feature=youtu.be

It was a great time spent down at Kampong Speu on a Sunday morning. Me and a few of my other friends did a three-hour long frisbee coaching for kids at a community school, Camkids. We can see the excitement and smiles on their little faces; they were having lots of fun. We taught them throwing techniques, game techniques as well as rules for the game. We can share loves through a variety of ways and I am proud that I am one of a distributor of this training. We also donated 4 frisbees for the school so those kids can continue on practicing in their free time.
My happiness comes from people’s smile. If I can do any skills that I am capable of doing to fulfill people’s needs, I would do so. I am proud to be one of the Surveying exploration’s member. Our main goal was to create our own, precise survey to collect data about three villages down at Kampong Speu, one of the provinces in Cambodia. We will analyze the data by ourselves and write them out or display them in a graph or a table so we could express villages’ condition so we could prove the villages’ situation to potential donors. In doing this project, we were working with Camkids, an organization down there, that started to help to improve the villagers’ livelihood down at the three villages since Camkids was created. We were focusing on people’s income and expenses, health and nutrition and education. We created questions for each category. We tried our best to get rid of response bias questions as much as we can due to the wordings of our questions. We then tested them out with our school’s staffs to see if the questions make sense to them. We went down to Kampong Speu with some volunteers to help us surveying families those three villages. Each survey took us about 30 to 45 minutes and we surveyed 103 families in a day. We tried to keep our surveying technique as not bias as possible, but still, the survey was a convenient sample and there were two or three questions that were misunderstood by our volunteers. We got back to school and started to organize all the data and try many sorts of way to display our data in a precise way as possible. It took us somewhere around two weeks looking at all the questions and see which one we can eliminate and which one we can analyze. I am impressed with the works I’ve achieved in this project and I am looking forward to seeing those analyses on Camkids’ website and I am hoping to know that my data can actually attract potential donors into helping to improve villagers’ livelihood in these three villages.
