On the 9th of January 2018, me and others Liger students when to Metro Clinic to help Khmer Sight Foundation. This is my third mission with this foundation, this mission is a bit different from other mission. For this term, we work at the clinic and not work in communities like before. Working in the clinic, make me gain more knowledge of the building. I get to know the eye screening room, the surgery room, and more. We work for one whole day with doctors and patients. Patients start to come to the clinic in morning but doctors start to work at 8 am, so they have to wait to two to three hours. After every patient checks, we got back to school around 4 pm.
On the 3rd, March 2018 I when to Maker Faire event that located in Olympic Stadium. When I arrived at Olympic Stadium I saw many booths, every booth also spacial and interested. I like going with my friends to booths that have game and fun category. I went to booths that have games to play because they have prizes. Through those games, I learn so many things from companies and organization. For me, I think games are fun to learn and earn prizes. The biggest companies that involve with Maker Faire this year are Coca-Cola and Smart. Coca-Cola, as you know it’s a soda drink company, Smart is a phone service Company.
On 18th, January 2018 I when to Vagabond Temple that located in Kab for a relaxing trip to release stress, to meditate, and to disconnect my self from any technology divides. When I arrive Vagabond, I already feel relax and peaceful. Vagabond environment was green, plus it’s built on a mountain. There were six Liger students when on this trip, two boys and four girls. The meditation was wonderful I learn so many things throughout each section. Something that challenges me the most was the food, at Vagabond everyone is vegan. At Liger we have one day a week to be vegetarian which mean we don’t eat meat but we can eat eggs, vegan is different because anything that related to animals they eat like eggs. So this means there no egg or meat at all, for me that it a lesson about vegan. After all, it was a great experience and I would like to thank all facilitators that make this happen.
On December 9th, 2017, I continued to keep up with Khmer Sight Foundation and a goal of fixing Cambodian eye issue. Khmer Sight Foundation is a non-profit organization who help people who have eye problems, Khmer Sight Foundation also have a huge clinic in Phnom Phen City for that patient who needs surgery. My last mission with this organization was at Kampong Province, and the location that we work with is near my hometown call Khrong Chek. This is my second mission to go an island name Dach and helping translating for patients who need eye screening, it was a wonderful time to work with people and feeling happy to see patient getting excited waiting for their eye to be fixed. After all the hard work, I get more and more experient to meeting people new people and a taste of being an eye doctor.
On the 18th, November 2017 I volunteer to go to Kompong Spue province which is my hometown, to help to translate for doctors in Khmer Sight Found. Khmer Sigh Foundation is a non-profit organization who help people that have eye issue, Khmer Sight Foundation decided to go a rural village name Chba Chrus to help people who can’t afford eye surgery and medicine. There were 10 Liger students volunteer to translate including me. At Chbar Chrus the doctors screening all the passions to find 15 passions who need to eye surgery. After screening and found all 15 passions who need eye surgery, we come back to Phnom Phen with the passions who need the surgery also.
On Wednesday the 3th, October 2017 in the evening, all senior students and staff when to watch a movie name “First They Kill MY Father”. “First They Kill MY Father” was a special movie because one of our Liger students got to act in that movie as the main character family member, also this story was filmed about Cambodian genocide that calls Khmer Rouge it happens in the 70s moreover, this movie director was Angelina Jolie who’s a famous US actor. This movie was gorgeous, this movie demonstrates a lot of interesting fact and daily life during Khmer Rouge. The movie is emotional because it’s talking about a family lose their parent during Khmer Rouge regime. After full two hours, I learned a lot from the movies and it’s was a fantastic experiment.
On 2016 April, Ministry of education and sport came and visit our schools. I was the one who needs to give a speech about Liger curriculum, my challenge was to remember all speech and talk slow with a clear voice. The ministry asks a lot of good question, also the ministry seem to interested in our school curriculum. So after presenting to the ministry, I felt relieved and excited.
