On the 26th to 28th October, International School of Phnom Penh serving 17th other school from three countries for a professional MUN conference. As a delegate from Liger Leadership Academy, I am so pleased to discuss and explore about sensitive problem in our community. For me, I feel it real because delegates are strongly follow their countries sometime change their opinion and sometime make amendment. We pay a lot of attention and put a lot of effort to make the conference successful in the whole 3 days.

At the very beginning, my respectful MUN adviser ask me what is favorite committee. I told her that I would like to be in JGA 1 which discuss about economic. Meanwhile, she reply to me with a question. Would you like to be in a senior committee? She ask beautifully. I think for a while because it my second MUN and I am only 13 but anyways I said yes because I want to challenge myself and I believe that I can do anything. Even other delegate are big or older than me I don’t care because age is just the number I believe that optimism and determination is more important. Because of that you will learn what I am done.

When the day that MUN comes, my speech and my knowledge are well prepare for the conference. When it time for opening speech, everyone are staring at me because I stood up and speak without any note. Fluency and my strong idea help me to guide my ways to become the best delegate. During the lobbying I share my clause, solutions, knowledge to make a final resolution. Other delegate in the teams asked me to be the main submitter because they afraid that when they go and speak people might ask them good question. I take their request and be a main submitter bravery.

A lot of delegate support my opinions and we are working very close together to archive a level that seemed like we solve the real problems. However, some delegate who have different idea and vision are strongly against with my idea.  My teams and I trying so hard to convince them and giving out a lot of reference to convince them to support the idea. Meanwhile, some of them come to me with their idea and we combine our idea together to make a final reasonable topic of sustainable tourism in Southeast Asia. To know more you can take a look at my team resolution:

“Heheoooo ohh oh oh,”cheered the stadium. On came the sport announcer, “It’s the keeper’s ball. Casilla throws the ball up high to Ramos. Ramos for a long pass to David Villa, he crosses to Iniesta, Iniesta.. Iniesta.. Iniesta… It’s a goal! A goal! Iniesta made the goal!”

On 11 June 2010, it was the best day that I ever had in my life. That day was as bright as the sun. It is the day that my family and I had been waiting for millions of years. Happily, it was the day that the FIFA World Cup had started. I was so excited to see all of the best teams in the world who traveled to South Africa for the first World Cup in Africa. I couldn’t wait to see the first game.

On 12 June 2010, at 3:00 AM, the whistle was blown by the referee, which mean the game started. South Africa warmly welcomed Mexico for the 1st game of 2010 World Cup. I felt very happy and nervous because the host country needed to play against one of the strongest teams from North America. In the first half, the result was 0-0 but I was so nervous because Mexico got involved in the game more than South Africa. Fortunately, In the second half Bulahahala, the profession football player from South Africa scored a goal for South Africa. In that time, I was on top of the world like I was on the sky because that time made me so excited because the host country scored the first goal of the World Cup. After a while Marches,  a player from Mexico scored a goal for Mexico to make the game equal. That results still continued until the last whistle.

On 2nd July, I wake up at 3:00 AM to watch Brazil vs Holland in the last eight. I was so nervous because I love brazil so much and it needed to play against Netherland in the quarterfinal. My uncle and I was lay down on the bad and watching the game silently. In that time, I was so nervous because Holland cover the ball more than brazil. My uncle and I always hold each hand when the ball on Netherland striker. The hard work that I wake up and watch the game at 3:00 Am just end up with me crying until the sun rise. In that time, I cried as hard as the rain fall and pillow cover with the water that from my eyes like it was put in the water for million of years. The sweet candy that I ate was so delicious and sweet but When Van Persie score a goal for Netherland it started to be bitter and bitter until the 90th minute it became uneatable. Not only me but my uncle also angry and unhappy. We really want brazil to win more World cup but the Brazilian teams before already gone but we believe that soon Brazil will Come back.

“SU SU Brazil” my uncle cheer.  

On the 11st, July, I watched Spain playing against Netherland again in the final World Cup. In that time, I really hate Holland because it defeated my favorite team in quarter final so I want spain to be the Champion. In that time, I believe that Spain will win because in the 124th minute spain and Netherland had continue the result 0-0. If Spain and Netherland Shootout penalties, Spain will win because Iker Casilla is very capable of saving penalty. Fortunately, Spain win without penalty because Iniesta scored a goal for Spain in the 125th minute.

“Spain… ” Cheer the Stadium.

I felt very happy in 2010 world cup because the game was unstoppable and South Africa was busy like a bee because it needed to run every thing to make the World Cup until the final. After the final match, I thought that I was on top of the world cause my favorite team won it first World Cup.

Tsamina mina eh eh Waka Waka eh eh….  


Say yes to Literacy- English

In English literacy class, we learn and do many cool projects. In this round, we learn about roots work and the origin of English. We also learn about some famous people like Gandhi, Sharkspeare, and some philosophers. My favorite part of this class is affirmation, we do that to bring our attention to class.


This is my affirmation that I did in class, for instant.


< I am strong. I am strongly pushed to finished the class greatly. I am good and lovely like a diamond pearl. I treat people nicely and paid them highly respect. I appreciated my class and my teacher. >  


What I interested the most in this class is the origin of English and root words. Most of the root words come from Latin and Greek which is the parent of English that we speak today. English coming from many parts of the world and one of those is Asia which is so surprise for me. Some of the words in English are coming from Sanskrit such as Octagon, triangle, and others. When those root words come to English, it make different word. Aqua is a word from Latin which mean water and these word make: aquatic, aquarium, aquifer, aquarist, aquaculture, aquaplane and others. Sound cool ?


We also did some creative writing in our class and in this round I did a personal narrative about myself and my Family.

In our world today most people know only creative writing or English poem which is not required to be rhyme. However, Khmer poem must be rhyme. There are many types of khmer poem and they all have different rule of rhyme and the ways to sing or read. Over the past few week in my Khmer literacy class, we study and do research about different type of poem and writing the poem as much as possible because the Junior students are going to write a book about Khmer poem. Honesty, it not easy to write a khmer poem because it very hard to find the word that rhyme each other with the same meaning. In the process of writing poem, I face many problems such as rhymes that match good with meaning and the maximum of the work in each line. But Anyways I finished 13 meaningful poem in two weeks. The poem that we should write is the poem that related to Study or educational.


This are some example of my poem:

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you learn a lot from what I did in this past few weeks.




Multimedia and Technology

In the first round of the year, I need to take five essential and one of those is multimedia and technology. Basically, in multimedia class we study about how to do a great research and some adobe skill. In this round we get only two weeks to study about research skill and some adobe programs. So we do research in the first week and the adobe in the other week. In the first week, we learn how can we have a good research and the question to help our research getting a better information and the tip to search for the information that match with our topic.

In the other week, Cindy ( our multimedia teacher) introduces our junior to adobe software and some of the junior already know to to use it. One of them is me, I used many adobe program before such as Photoshop, Light room, In design, Illustrator, Premiere pro and others. In addition, Cindy gave an leadership opportunity to people who know adobe to teach our classmates and I decided to teach In design and It was so risky for me to teach In design because I am not so advance at it and I just start using it for about a month.  I was so proud of myself that I could stand up in front of 25 people to teach them and pretend like I am a professor.

This is some of my adobe work:

Ohlala! Photo of me playing football after edited in Light room.

Picture of the great Khan of Mongolia status.

Poster of Genghis Khan after I put different pieces into in design.

I hope you ( world) learn a lot about my multimedia class for the first round. Thank you 🙂

Matter and What around us.

What is STEM ?

STEM is an acronym word that its each letter represent something else.

S represent Sciences.

T represent Technology.

E represent Engineering.

M represent Math.


However in my STEM class we mainly focus on Sciences. In this years, we learn about Physical science which is the study of the natural world around us that based on fact and evidence.

This is what we study:

Matter: Matter is what is the object around us.

Matter: Solid, Gas, Liquid.

Not only matter we also study about Atom, how atoms are made, Protons, neutron, electron, quark, atomic number, atomic mass and mostly related to something that stay around us.


Who am I ?

My name is Songkrea. I am 13 years old, and I currently live and learn at Liger Leadership Academy which is located near the capital city, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. My mother tongue is Khmer, but I have been speaking English for over three years. I grew up with my parents and two siblings in the capital city, Phnom Penh. I have two brothers. I believe that love can make me strong and hate can make me unstoppable. 

I’m one of the 110 students in my school, “Liger Leadership Academy.” It is a school encompassing great promising, Cambodian youth, known as the change agents of their country. My friends come from all over the provinces in Cambodia, and we’ve been together for three years of knowing and understanding each other really well with great personalities, senses of humor, and knowledge. Moreover, there has been a multitude of projects we’ve been working together with amazing help from our facilitators, who come from many parts of the world.

My inspiration quote is, “Your love make me strong and your hate make me unstoppable” and this quote is from the greatest footballer of all time that he shows his determination and all his hard work to achieve his goal even people saying good or bad about him. This is very meaningful and it very precious for me and might be for you. I believe that love and encouragement is always the first machine that generates all the magic and energy for you. Those words make us proud of ourselves and make us going forward and fight until the end. On the other hand, I also believe that Hate can make us unstoppable because for me I always want to be the best and the best of all the great some when someone said that I am not good or maybe they talking about me in the bad ways I never stop and I never cry. The only thing that I do is standing and fight. I fight with the air and ask myself about the plan. I always show them that I am strong so whenever they are talking bad about me they help me. They help me to succeed and they all are my provider. All of the people around me are all my friends even they are my enemy because each of them play an important role to help me even they are good or bad.   

Basically, you can describe me in four main words:, optimistic, explorer, Calculated risk taker, and hard worker.

I called myself an optimistic boy because I believe that whatever we did, it will return whether it good or bad. I always think that when we pay all of our determination and our attention we might get success. Even move a mountain, we still get it done if we willing to do it. For me nothing is impossible, Neil Armstrong can stand on the moon so I might swim in Jupiter, who knows? You wouldn’t succeed in your entire life if your mindset says, “I can’t do it or I might not be able to do it. I believe that Optimism is the most important value that you need in your body in order to get to where you want to go in the future”.

I believe that I am an explorer because I love to explore and learn everything. There is no subject that I don’t like or I hate in class. I love all of them. If I found something hard or something that I’m not  interested in, I fight with it, the hardest I always move and learn how to adapt with the subject. After we pay high attention to the subject that we don’t like soon we will love it because when we learn anything it’s all important to us and we will use it in our life. I believe and I can promise with you. Some people having struggle at math or history or sciences of literacy but for me it totally not. In the first year, I hate reading but after I hate it I love it because I find that it help me with my learning and my academic so I started to read and read and in my third year, I love reading and when I love reading my english is improve so much because I learn new vocabulary, use of punctuation, sentences, grammar, idioms and others. Also in my freetime, I always learn and research about many different things around the world. In addition, sometime I set my own goal and my own plan to learn and study about something new or my own exploration that I teach and I learn by myself. I feel like I love study and explore new thing so much and I found that study is so easy for me.  

Whenever the opportunity come I am the one that always rise my hand and open for the chance. I always keep in mind that opportunity is always the best because if it good it is great but if it bad it is our experiences. Being a person who taking risk is very risky but I never stop and I always consider whether it good or bad. However, I never afraid I always built up my confident and attend everything that I get to go. These is totally a true change agent characteristic trait because after my three years experiences I am now strong enough to work with other people who I never know, working on a project that very new for me and working with older people. In this years, I will attend an event called MUN and I will be with the bigger guys that some of them can be my uncle. Sound scary? I would say no I sound so fantastic because I get the chance to level up my confident and develop my net working my my communication skill. So whenever opportunity come you should drop all your fears and take all the chance that you have in hands.

Last but not least, you might consider me as a hard worker. Day by day I work so hard. I always pay high attention to all the classes and take them seriously. I am rarely having freetime to do what I want to do because I always want to learn and create something new. One of my exploration is entrepreneurship which teach me about business and coming up with product that solving problem in our healthy community. My teammate and I trying to make a lamp that having less brightness and having a lot of eyes protection for kid to study at night. We only got ideas but I don’t know how to do, our prototype is not even work but I never change my idea to do something new even my teacher recommend me to. I always keep my ideas, research, explore, design, and taking all the risky risk to have a successful product for my teacher. These show that I am always putting my effort to get all my work done.

Generally, I am so hornal to share myself with you, World:). I am hoping that you learn a lot about me and Liger. I am always looking forward to see your comment and develop my portfolio.
