Outdoor Leadership | Reflection

OutDooR LeaDerSHiP


            To me, outdoor means being outside of a crowded place, released stressed and being with nature. Or another meaning is being outside the door. Since the first week until the last week of exploration there too many things going on that sometime can change your emotion. Throughout the whole exploration, I have learned to be a leader, to be outdoor, and other outdoor skill. Apart from that I also improve my drawing skill and concentration skill. I’ve drawn a lot of pictures about nature and my surrounding by doing sit and spot.


In the first week, we are focusing on learning and understanding outdoor leadership and other outdoor skill. I also really enjoy studying and practicing the scenario in class. I learn how to do CPR and more. After all of the hard work going on the trip is the most rewarding part of the whole exploration.


Kirirom Trip


At the third week, we went on a two-day trip to Kirirom. During the trip on the bus we all watch movie together, sing together and I have so much fun. When we arrive at our destination the view was indescribable it the most wonderful and fabulous experiences, We set up our campsite near the Heaven cliff and we also set a campfire to keep us warm too. They call that cliff The Heaven Cliff for reason, it really magical and fabulous we can see the view of the forest from above. Hornbill and other bird and animal are flying and jumping around the green and brown forest. In the evening we set up the campfire and cook our dinner. It was really hard to set the campfire because the leaf, wood, and grass are wet. After we finish our delicious meal we go around our campfire to roast a marshmallow and make smores. Unfortunately, I don’t eat marshmallows so I roast cracker instead. At night it very chilly so like to stay around the campfire to warm myself up. In the morning we wake up really early to see the sunrise it was very cold so I wrap myself up with the thin blanket. I really want to see the sunrise but it hard because of the cloud is blocking it when the sky is clear the sun is already rising. In the morning we got sliced bread and PB&J for breakfast, I roast my PB&J sandwich with the fire that we made for the morning.  I really enjoy everything about this trip but the best part about the trip is I got to learn about new species of plants and also birds. When we trek back down it was a bit easier than when we trek up. During the ride back to school I was sleeping soundly so I can’t really it.


Picture of me and my friends during the trip to Kirirom. We are having so much fun together.


Mondulkiri Trip


On the sixth week, we went on the trip to Mondulkiri. I take the whole day to get there. We leave our school at 8:00 and we arrive there at dinner. We set our campsite on a very beautiful green hill with the view of other hill and mountain it was really relaxing. At night we did not get to roast marshmallows but we get to make a roasted sweet potato. It was really fun but I burn myself because of touching the metal wire. The rewarding part of that is getting the delicious and delightful sweet potatoes. The morning we start trekking to the mountain nearby, we trek until arriving at that waterfall. During the trekking, we stop a lot and we also saw a lot of leeches. Our group member starts getting leech bit on their body and that when I start to scare. I cry a lot because I can’t help see those leech. It looks really scary and it sucks blood from humans body. After a long walk, we arrive at the first, we all do a pack off and eat our lunch. I jump on the slippery rock to get to the big log in the waterfall. I have a lot of scratch on my leg because I slip a lot but it was a fabulous experience. The water is really clear and it makes me happy to see my friends enjoy the waterfall and dance and sing and splash water at each other.  After we setal down we continue our trekking to another waterfall. It is bigger and more beautiful than the first one. We do sit and spot for 40 min. I spot a lot of things such as water spider, leaf and beautiful rock and vine too. After sit and spot we continue our trekking, we walk until we arrive at the peck of the mountain. Unfortunately, it raining so the bus has to come to pick us up. We all pull out our rain poncho and cover our body with it. When the car our shoes are soaking wet, when we step on the car it makes that car really messy and dirty. We rode back into the city and I was freezing cold. We have an avocado shake then we head back to our campsite. Today is pretty the same as other days we roast our leftover sweet potatoes and go to bed. In the morning, we went trekking to see the elephant. We saw a new waterfall I got to enjoy the cold and beautiful water. The best part is I got to feed the elephant. We have a very good cultural meal from our host family. When we trek back we got to eat the shave ice and delicious meal at a restaurant. In the morning, we come back to our school and I sleep again, not the whole time but most of the time.

This was a very fun trip. I learn new thing and I really enjoy spending time with my friend.



I always wanted to see the waterfall and the species of plant and animal. Throughout this trip, I get to feed the elephant, Enjoy the waterfall and saw a lot of insect and animal.  


In this whole experience, I learn to be a self leader and an active listener. I respect and accept my friend quest. I listen to the designated leader and I also lead myself to not scared and do what am supposed to do. When am in Mondulkiri I lead myself to do the thing that I never on before such as roasted sweet potatoes for other people. I also lead my self to fight over my fear of leeches and worms.

When we go on the trip there this one person that always makes me admired. She always on task and she respects everyone idea. She always encourages others to stay strong, she always with me when I need her.


In this whole experience their hardship, difficulty, and conflict. I learn to understand people well and sometimes I solve the problem and self. The new thing that I learn about myself is I can manage to keep my feeling to my self. I usually shared everything with my peer but this trip and this exploration teach me to stay strong and determine and force my self to stay calm and focus.  I really appreciate this opportunity and I’ll never forget the best moment that I have with all of my peers.


Round 3 | Multimedia



Round three of multimedia we do a lot of coding and programing. The coding language that we are really focusing on is python. The program that we are use to practice and do our assignment on are Codeboad.io and Codecademy.  In our lesson we learn about:

for loop

break statement


range function

nested loop

while loop



if statement


elif statement

else statement

and, or, not



infinite while loop in while loop

break statement in while loop

continue in while loop

Below is my coding assignment.

while attempts < 3:

   guess = input(“Guess a random number between 1 and 10 :”)

   if guess == random_number:

       print “Hooray! You win”



       print “Sorry! Please Try Again!”

   attempts += 1

print “Ohh No! Game Over!”

Round 3 / STEM


The round we start a new schedule. Monday is call The Boring Day which  is a day that we do alot of reading and taking note . Tuesday is The Question Day the teacher start answer the question that we have and explain about the topic that we read on Monday. We don’t have STEM class on Wednesday. Thursday is The Experiment Day which is my favorite day i have a lot of have experimenting. After we do all the experiment and see all the out come the teacher give us assignment to do. Every Thursday after experiment day we have to do a lab report. Friday is the Quiz Day.


This round we learn about chemical reaction, chemistry of carbon and chemical solution.


Chemistry of carbon is a lesson about carbon. The experiment is to make black snake. Below is my Lab report.

Black Snake Experiment

Black snake is form when a mixture of baking soda and sugar burn. In this experiment we need 20g of sugar, 5g of sodium bicarbonate, a bowl that fill with sand, alcohol and a match. Using all this ingredient and mix together and burn them make black snake. How this happen i am not sure but what i think is when baking soda burn it for sure release carbon dioxide gas and when sugar brun is become harden that help trap the gas and form in to this long black snake.


The outcome of this experiment is a long ash. While the fire is burning the mixture it start to disappear and the snack grow longer and longer until the mixture are all gone.I can describe it in a food way imagine the outside of a pizza crust is crunchy and the inside is soft like silk. That description of how i feel when i touch the black snake.  


EXTRA : I am curious about why it form the black snake so I decided to do a little research and this is what i find out about the experiment. The chemical formula of sugar is  (C12H22O11) and the chemical element that sugar contains are Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen. The chemical element of sodium 

bicarbonate is (NaHCO3). When the mixture burns, the baking soda gets hot, and it decomposes to release carbon dioxide gas. A lack of oxygen in the

 sugar from the combustion creates carbonate and water vapor. The pressure from the CO2 gas pushes this carbonate out to form the snake, which should continue growing for 20 minutes, give or take.

Chemical solution we learn about solvent and solute. On the experiment day we are experiment by making a sugar solution and turn it into a rock candy. Below is my lab report.

Rock Candy Lab Report

Rock candy is a one of the coolest looking candy in the world. Today this lab 

report is about the best candy in the world.  I didn’t get to make it but let say i 

know about it. (By researching)


How does a sugar solution become rock candy?

According to my understanding rock candy form when sugar melt and turn in to candy. If you think in a science way there are more step and let talk about it.

When we melt sugar in to hot water their will be no sugar left but the sugar partial that we can’t see are still in there. When we let the solution set the water start to evaporate and the sugar start to form and when it connects to each other they form a big batch of sugar that we can see like a crystal.

Math | Round 2



We still in the process of finishing the Primary Mathematics 5A. This round we learn about area and perimeter, base and height, geometry, and ratio.


Area/Base and height

In area lesson, we learn about how to find the area of the object. There some different sharp that we learn about such as square, rectangle, triangle, 3d abject and also mix shape. A four size shape is really easy to fiImage result for areand the area but the triangle is a little bit hard.  Base and height is also one of the elements that help to find the area of the triangle to so we do a little practice about base and height. We also learn about the formula or an algorithm to find the area of the triangle. = base*height/2



If you find the area of the object why don’t we find the perimeter too? We learn how to find the perimeter of four size sharp.


For ratio, we usually do our exercise on our laptop. We find the ratio of a different thing. Our teacher gives us exercise on Google Classroom. We practice by finding the ratio of staff and student in our school, the school supplies and also find the ratio of food ingredient.

Multimedia | Round 2


Technology is the focus of Multimedia class.

Story Structure:

This round I learn about the digital storytelling, camera setting, and illustrator. I also learn about the structure of storytelling. It really important that We can write a story in the right structure and the right way. We also do some example of Pixar story structure and also go through some video and article to learn about the different type of storytelling. In class, I also write an example of a Pixar storytelling structure. This is my the story that I write in class when I learn about the storytelling structure.

The Girl Who Hates

On a really sunny day, a mysterious girl walks into the house that people said it hunted. She sits a seesaw and sing. No want to know what she is doing there. The first day she walked in she sings, the second day she walked in she read, the third day she walked in she laughs, the fourth day she walked in she cries and know want to know why? Everyone gather together and talk about her, and a woman live near that house said that she comes from Canada and she lives with her scary aunt name Kim and she here to visit her house. Everyone starts to wonder why she is really strange. The last thing that she did in the house which day five is saying go bye and disappear.No one know why she is here or where she went or even her name. The next day is October 31 she appears to be in that house having fun. In just a blink everything changes the beautiful white house turn black cover with blood. On the roof people see bat and rat flying and running around. The gate turns black with some bloody red stain on and there a statute of a black cat on the side of the entrance. Everyone runs back home and on the table of every house have an invitation to go to Halloween. Everyone just realizes that it the 31st of October the Halloween day. In the invitation is said that everyone has to be there. After the party end, people ask her who is she. Everything had revile. She not a ghost but a vampire, she doesn’t drink blood, she comes here because she hate everything accept this house and this place. She hate herself that she born as a vampire. She hate herself that she don’t have any friend. She hate herself that her parent is not with her they die when she born. She hate herself that she live with her scarey aunt. She hates herself that she hate herself. She come to live here alone she wants to explore herself. The girl still did not reveal her name but everyone love her because she is nice and kind. Then the girl lives happily ever after.


Photography and Videography Skill

In my whole school year, almost everything is included technology. So this round we also learn about photography skill. We learn about the camera setting, How to attach the mic to the camera, the type of shot and how to make your photo look good. We’re doing a lot of fun activity such as picture scavenger hunt, play around with the mic and the camera and other fun activity.

Round 2 | STEM


This round Stem we are learning about the chemical bonding. We learn about the three type of chemical bonding. This lesson is a really fun. We watch fun video to help us understand the lesson. Once a week we also have a fun activity that includes a website call Quizizz. Quizizz is a website where we can do fun practice on our computer that we can compete our classmate and also they show us the process of the game on the leaderboard. This round we do a lot of reading and research to understand the lesson and the statement that we learn in class.

Exploration | World Renew Community Documentary

This year my exploration is World Renew Community Documentary. My overall view for this exploration is that this exploration is really interesting and fun but a little tired. I’ve been to four villages in Kampong Speu province. I have interviewed a lot of villagers and get more knowledge going on every day and I also have some highlight from the trip. The first one is when I and my team is trying to interview some kid and we meet a girl. After the interview, I have taught her some English and that is also a new experience for me. In the process of making this exploration come to the finish line all of us have to put a lot of effort into it. I am helping the video team to edit and writing script and taking video. The hardest part is to use the program to edit the video. It really hard for me to participate in the thing that I never know before and it a really big experience.


This year we start anew essential about Technology and multimedia. I have a hard time understanding about the algorithm that we use to solve code or any problem that have the same kind of question. In multimedia class we learn about the type of programming, the keyword to that useful for our researching and we also use some new application such as Indesign, Photoshop and Lightroom. What new to me is learning how to use InDesign, and photoshop. 

The most difficult one is photoshop. We also learn to create some algorithm for a few problems so brainstorm and get deeper into programming and coding.

English Literacy

       2018-2019 is the new school year. I class we also have around theme and this round we are focused on getting to the root, history of English language/ Etymology. The first 7 weeks of the year I have learn about root word and we also study about some history around the world too. We also use some application to help us learning and keep track of our progress. I class we also have some fun activity to entertain us and also some other class discussion. This new year we are doing a lot of researching and discussing.  Every week I got a home packet from the literacy teacher. I got a week to finish it. After I turn in the homework packet I got a quiz set we repeat that process about 5 weeks and then it the end of the round. After the round, we move to the new theme.

How I Change Cambodia


        Making a change for the world and your own country is a really hard job but we all did help be part of changing your community. You change your country by having a different job and using different opinion.

         The first round of exploration is the most exciting round. Me and my team have a big journey of making change for Cambodia. Make a book for children and all people around the world to read and know the hidden place and learn more about their own country and also foreigner to learn more about cambodia. Me and my team promote change by getting experience and share them with Cambodia children, adult and other people from other countries by making a Cambodia geography book. We go through a lot of processes such as Researching, trip, interview and more. Cambodia needs a lot of help from all of us the new generation. So we create this book to help making change for Cambodia children to learn more about their culture and their country. We have 4 teams to help make this geography book exist. The four-team go on the trip all around Cambodia and interview the villager to get information and put them together to make the perfect book.

            Technovation is the program that offer girlsthe opportunity to step into technology and help change their country. The girl competes each other by creating an application. The application that we made need to help solving problems that the program give us. There are six problems and they are poverty, environment, peace, equality, education, and health. This program help sustains develop the goal for the girl to solve problem and help develop their country. The program goal is to contest all the young women around the world to creative ingenuity and determination. This program also inspire young women to think that they are a big part of changing the world.

I also participate in this program. My team have four five member, and our team name is Green farm. Our app name is Farmer market. Our app help solving poverty problem. The problem that our app help solve is that farmer don’t connect to their costumes. Our app help connect farmer to customer by letting them post their product so the customer that want the farmer product can order. Farmer market help change people life and make their life colorful.  No more poverty, Use farmer market right now.

And a part of that technovation provided us the new experience that most girls in Cambodia never try before. There are thousands of girls around the world participate in this program. All team that participates in technovation have their own mentor that help guide them and to teach them how to do basic coding. In the program, we use block code and we all so use the application called App Inventor. In this process, we also have a role. There are 2 roles and they are the business plan and the coder or technical. To understand and create our app is the most difficult thing I ever learn and done. But their a sentence that I really like that is “Girl who code boy who cook.” By Forbes and other News         

       Plastic is one of the really big problems that the world is facing right now. Around the world people is using plastic and not help recycle them. One city in japan have no trash on the ground the plastic have been recycle and the community is reduce and reuse the plastic. All the trash that can’t be use all go to the trash bin in a neat pile . I hope in future the world will be like that Japan city. I can’t help change the whole world by my own. I have a team who alway support each other. We start to reuse plastic in our school and we will promote our idea to our near by neighbor and our communitie. Our project is about composting, compost is a project that also help with reducing stuff. Compost help reduce waste that come from the kitchen. When we think of reducing we come up with a problem that the our community and the world is facing. We start by brainstorming the idea than we come up with the solution that everyone agrees. To reduce plastic we come up with an idea to reuse and recycle the plastic. We make a list that said what can that plastic use for and what can we do if that plastic can’t be used. We start to collect the trash around our school. Then we divide it into two pile which is recycled and not recycle. Our idea for recycling plastic is to make a mat or bag from the plastic that can be recycled. To reduce plastic we want to make a fabric bag then we give them to our friends and our family. When they got the bag they can start to use less and less plastic. Now in Cambodia a lot of mall and supermarket start to reduce plastic. They stop giving free plastic bag but if the customer wants the plastic bag they have to buy it for 0.049$. When the customer buys the thing they don’t want to spend their money on the plastic bag so they bring their own bag. The customer brings their own bag also a part of reducing plastic. So let start from all of you who read the paragraph. Let clean our planet and help recycle and use less plastic. It all starts from you.
