A great experience I have so far in Liger. Learning computer programming was one of my passion and dream and I get to practice it in class because most of the time, I was self-taught.
In the course, I learned about Python which is a programming language specially for beginners. Since I already spent one year at Liger learning to code, I was familiar with the program. Even I already know, I still push myself to the very limits and help others along the way.
Helping others learn is what my session has been like. It helped me for my leadership skiils and also to help my lovely friends to climb up to the sky.
In this course, I learned about the science of carbon. Did you know that your body contain carbon? You probably might not know and it’s the same for me. The Carbon Cycle is what keeps the carbon keep rotating. Trees take CO2 from the atmosphere and release oxygen, We, humans breathe in Oxygen and release C02 and the cycles keep rotating. Organism decay, Plants respiration also contributed to the cycle. Deforestation distrupt the cycle very badly like taking wheels from bikes.
In math course, we learned about decimals such as substracting, addition, multiplication and division. We just started our new books which is Marshall Cavendish Education, Primary Mathematics Standard Edition, 5B. I was excited to get the new book because it felt like I was stuck in 5A for so long. I learned alot and I know I will progress.
Being disrespected can cause a lot of problems. The misunderstanding might be the cause but usually happens when racism and discrimination are there too. This will be not beneficial for both sides. The victim was abused and damaged both mentally and physically. The one who causes the problem will be looked down on by many people because of their unacceptable actions. This will determine that they will be nemesis because both don’t get along even if it’s different religion or nation. With different religion and cultures, people tend to find things others can relate to do but if we can’t find it, people want others to follow who they are and what they are like. Mostly young Cambodians are taught by others including teachers, friends, and families that what they thought was right for their kids so the younger Cambodians would think that it is right then they would pass the concept onto the next generation. Sometimes if we do this with higher ranking people, they would feel unhappy. Furthermore, there would be a chance they start to have wars. Indigenous Peoples are people but with different cultures, beliefs and ways of living. However, they aren’t being treated nicely as a typical Cambodians. Mrs. Prom Morn, who is an indigenous person from Souy indigenous community, said that “When I was young, I wanted to move out and study in a normal school but the children there bully me because I’m different.” This shows that people started doing not now but at a very long time ago in the past but never realized that it impacted a lot of people in a negative way.
Bad habits are habits that are easy to apply but rarely accepted by everyone. It’s a habit that shouldn’t be applied to everyone’s’ livings and everyday routine. Studies researched by Zaneta Thayer, Assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver, a former researcher of Indigenous Communities in Cambodia, shows if discrimination was shown to young people (kids), they will develop the habit of doing further in their future (Thayer). The habit will harm their social lives such as communicating with friends because he/she is a bad person. The victim might also receive anxiety because they were constantly being pushed. However, this doesn’t apply to every person in the indigenous communities because they got used to their surroundings habit of picking on them. It has already become normal that they are used to bad habits. Some indigenous people actually are afraid and not willing to have any problems or disputes between each other so they moved away to a safer area where they live with their communities apart from others. Cambodians tend to speak out differences from people and it’s a part of their livings because most didn’t get educated about discrimination at the young age. However, they are not educated that discrimination is right, they are also not taught that discrimination is wrong. Despite the fact that it wasn’t brought to them, they can still change that habit to a more suitable one that respects and admire other’s significant cultures. Developing positive habits can be hard to begin but more powerful and respect for others than negative behavior. One of the habits that we should adopt is not seeing the negativity of differences but embrace the unique and beautiful differences of indigenous communities instead.
In this world, there is no such thing as perfection. There would always be problems everywhere we go. It’s like conversations. There will be a negative and a positive outcome. The result could be good and brings the relationship closer or both will have hatred to each other. Sometimes it’s not the person’s fault because they were not born with the mindset of a bad person, their surroundings that include teachers, parents, elders and even their friends did. Their surroundings were ALSO not born with the mindset their surroundings did so they pass it on to the next generation. They planted in the mindset, intellect and change the perception of the person they’re telling because they thought was the right thing their elders taught them. Then the one who got the mindset passed on is stuck there not even knowing if they are supposed to be there. And when they realized it, they begin to climb back to light to treat themselves better than they once were. But they already too much violence and destruction that society thinks they can’t be good no matter what. This doesn’t apply to everyone though. Changing it back will be difficult because people are already at the lack of trust and apologies for you that they won’t do anything if you don’t do something. If not changed soon enough, it would become an empty hole in their hearts that they both hated the most.
These things apply to my friends or family not knowing how to operate systems on computers or someone wants me to design them a brochure for their company. I want this to be my future because this is a very useful skill, I’m really good at it and I really like it.
For this exploration overall, our main was to create a book describing Indigenous Community’s cultures, traditions, foods, etc. I was assigned to be the designer of the book because I was an experienced designer with my last project, The Geography of Cambodia. This exploration gave me an opportunity to show that I’m passionate about digital-designing and really let me lead my design team to success. Leadership is one of the skills that I will have after graduation and will stick me forever.
In stem class, I have studied Chemical Bondings. The chemical bond is the of attraction between atoms and ion. In chemical bonding, they’re three type of that such as Ionic bonding, Covalent bonding, and metallic bonding. An example is Ionic bonding is the force of the attraction that holds together positive and negative.
Once there is a chance to shine, show your work and art, it’s photography. Multimedia class was focusing on digital storytelling. Photography was what I enjoyed the most and it really inspires to really like cameras and push me further to like video-editing. Photography really gives me a chance to show what I like and express feelings in different ways.
Math has really been interesting for me this year because I got to do lots of activitie in that involves math in a fun way. I really appreciate that I have this subject because not only it is really useful but also useful for other areas like engineering or architecture. It’s really interested me is that I get to work on mini-projects with teams that really improves my collaboration skills. Collaboration is really useful if you’re opening a new startup or even work in other projects that involves a team. I will use that skill later in my life because I know that that is very important
