HIV/AIDs leading workshop

On 28th of March, 2017. I am a part of a team that leads HIV workshop at my school. I am one of the session leaders. Before the workshop started I felt a bit nervous and scared about if I miss anything up. During the session I felt like I did well and proud of myself. The students that attend asked so many good questions. It was really valuable to share what I learned to other students about the problem of discrimination toward people living with HIV in Cambodia. I was presenting about treatments in Cambodia, it was really fun with our simulation on candy as medicine, the attendees seem interesting, focus shared a lot of ideas and asked a lot of questions.

My mission statement.

My mission statements are I will share what I learned from this expiration. My neighbor always told me that I am really skinny so I must have HIV. From what I learned I will explain to them about HIV and the problem of discrimination that needed to stop. My family and my relative, been carrying a lot of myth about HIV that it not even true at all. Once I go back to my hometown I’ll clear that up and really hope that they will understand. Not just to my family, I will all help spread this awareness to my friends that don’t know about HIV. I really hope that they will help and stop the discrimination toward PLHIV.

Why Cambodian girls can’t play football?

In Literacy class I wrote an article talking about Gender problem that still happens in Cambodia. 


WHY can’t girls play football?


A Cambodian mother once said, “girls can’t play football because they are weak, and football is not for girls.” Cambodian girls can’t play football is known from their society, community, and family. A lot of parents in Cambodia won’t allow their daughters to play a sport such as a football, even though it is currently popular in Cambodia. Even though the thought of that perspective; girls can’t play football, had changed over time. In the present time, there are still a lot of families that are not allowing their daughters to play football.


Cambodia society sees girls are weaker than boys so there are no reasons of girls playing football. Parents would say, because they love their daughters that is why they won’t allow girls to play football. They think that football is a dangerous sport and they don’t want girls to get hurt. Another reason is that Cambodian have this mindset of girls should stay home and do all the cooking so girls don’t have time to play football. Also, they don’t want their daughter to be a black sheep because no girls play football The mindset of,  “football is NOT a game for girls” still happen in Cambodia.


Savannu Pich stated, “My parent won’t allow me to play football because they think I am too weak to even play football, girls should stay at home to do chore so they can’t go out and play football and girls have no potential to play football well as boys.”


Sreyneang Oun said, “ The reason that my parents won’t allow her to play football is that football is not famous so there is no point of play sport that is not known by some people.”


Dalin Sao stated, “My parents won’t allow me to play football because football can cause injury which might affect my look, and I might get bullied by other people when I am not good at play football. ”


Around 10 years before this, Cambodian girls here are not allowed to walk and make loud sounds because if their neighbors hear it, they would think that, Cambodian girls are not a Cambodian girls that the society wanted. This is also parts of the reasons that parents in Cambodia are not allowing their daughters to play football.


In the last 10 years, some girls are not allowed to play football because of the action of boys in the society. Parents think that boys who play football usually do poorly in school that is why they don’t want girls to do the same. Also, the parents think that if they have a football team they would turn into a gang that no one wants those girls to be.  


All those perspective by Cambodian parents, “girls are not allowed to play football” is still happening in Cambodia currently. Parents do that because their perspective on this sport is that it is dangerous and girls should play it.

“Statue” Khmer Poem

I wrote this poem in Khmer class. 


អង្គុយសំកុកលើកៅអី                                លួចមើលអូនស្រីពេលញ៉ាមបាយ

លួចនឹកលយចគិតបានថែកាយ            ជារឿងសោកស្ដាយដែលមិនបាន។

វង្សភ័គ្គរូបស្រីស្រល់ត្រចង់                         មុចមូលក្រឡុងដូចកង់ឡាន

អង្គុយសំកុកនៅនឹកស្មាន                       បានរូមកលយានមកណែណិត។

ស្រមោលស្រមៃឃើញតែស្រី                      ញើបញ័រហរទ័យរំភើបចិត្ត

ចង់ស្និតចង់ស្នាលចង់នៅជិត                ចង់បានវមិត្តថ្នាក់ថ្នមកាយ។

លុងស្នេហ៍ស្រីដកចិត្តមិនបាន               ស្ម័គ្រថែនល្យានពំុសោកស្ដាយ

ឌឺដងសម្ដីពាក្យលេបខាយ                      ស្នេហ៏តែឆោមឆាយគ្មានថ្មីឡើយ។

គិតហើយគិតទៀតចង់សួរស្រី                ក្រែងស្រស់ពីសីមានគេហើយ

អង្គុយសំកុកចាំចម្លើយ                          ចាំដោយបេះដូងលោតដុកដាក់។

ចាំស្រីយូរហើយមិនវាចា                           ឬស្រីគិតថាខុសវណ្ណ:

ទើបដឹងថាស្រីជាចម្លាក់                          ដែលគេបានច្លាកសម្រាប់តាំង។


Math(Statistic) 2017-2018

In August 2017, I started a class of SAT Prep. This class teaches by Jeff, we basically preparing for SAT test. I didn’t a pretest of the SAT in Khanacademy. This class hard and stressful that is why we try to prepare for the actual test. It is the hardest math class I ever have taken throw out my life and this is a college class plus it a second language for me so the vocabulary is super hard to understand. So in this class, I learned to read and analyze different types of a graph like bar-graph, histogram, stemplot and scatter plot.

Currently, I am learning about correlation and regression line to analyze the data and the relationship between two variables in a data. Also, I am learning about the prediction line and the real outcome of the data.
