Outdoor Leadership

In this exploration, I got to do a lot of hiking in Mondulkiri and it was actually my first time there. It was hot in the days while I was hiking but it was super cold when I was sleeping in a tent. When we hike, we got to see a lot of birds camouflaged on the trees. The hike was exhausting by itself but my friends would just make everyone laugh especially Huykea, Sakseth, Rayuth and more. They kept me happy and energetic throughout the hike on the steep mountains. Nature also gives me fresh air and breeze which also helped me on the hike.

My favorite part was when I cooked the food Mondulkiri. When we got to the elephant site, I got to cook the food there by using the bamboo sticks. We cooked pork, fish and Phnong soup. It was my first time cooking that way and it was an awesome experience doing that.

Something that was difficult was when we were hiking because the path was narrow, kind of steep and slippery. I fell a few times but luckily, it wasn’t much of an injury. A solution I found was when I plant the stick behind me and go down if I were to slip, I still had the stick to hang on to. This solution works 70% of the time.

The most rewarding part of this trip was when we got to eat the big lunch at Mondulkiri because I got to help make such as putting the meat onto the sticks, washing the vegetables for the soup and I got to see and know how to cook the food the old way.

There are Two people I admired during this trip was my friends: Sakseth and Huykea. I admired them because when I hike and was very tired with no energy left, they made jokes and sang songs together that brings more energy back to me to keep going, We also have the same personality such as eating, playing and working together.

Community Traveling Theater

Set Design was a awesome experience for me because it gives me a chance to show that I can be a back stage person. The actual play was amazing but wasn’t created by me but for me I did do a lot. I helped them shine like the stars they are. This exploration gave me some experience for me to what’s feel like at the back stage where the talent grew. I wish this exploration happen again.

Geography of Cambodia: Publishing Team

Cambodia is always where I lived ever since I was born. It is held in a special place in my heart. Cambodia has many different great features like Angkor Wat, Kulen Mountains and many more. I’ve spent 1 year working on this project and at the end, I know it’s going to be a great book. The project is about the geography of Cambodia. If you go and look in the store, you can’t find books about the geography of Cambodia that was made in Cambodia. It is very rare that books in Cambodia are famous in other countries. The project’s goals were to create a book for tourists and government schools to apply to their curriculum. What special about the book is that is was made by young Cambodians and it is for also young Cambodians. The researching process took 1 year and it involves all the juniors to contributed to the project evenly except for the designing team which has more work to do and I was in it. It was hard because we couldn’t really agree on which format or layout to be in the book but after that everything had gone well. Doing this will help me improve my editing skills for photos and videos and it will help me in the future if I will be in a film industry. It was great and I’m proud of everyone and I’m proud of Cambodia.
