I have a chance to grow up and experience many things as a usual Asian kid. There are many things that we do especially wish or pray for things, but usually, we never work to accomplish it. I know that some people are born to continue their family business, but every people on earth at least take a chance to create a change. I am here in a boarding school to be a change agent and every year, at least I got to do some small change to my community, local opinion or even social opinion. This year, I have been doing a workshop to a school from Singapore, Model United Nation and Tos Merl or known as the Traveling Theater that we have created.
Liger and Crest have partnered to do a workshop as Crest Secondary School visit Cambodia from Singapore. This workshop is to show leadership skills that we have in our school to share with them. Doing a workshop for Singapore students is exciting. My team and I have prepared it as good as we can to make a one day workshop worth to the students that spend their time with us. As a Leadership school, we want to show them our unique learning and our student’s leadership skills. This is a significant chance for me to share and learn. As we begin a workshop, it is a little bit hard because we need to make them feel welcome and comfortable to do things with enjoyment. It makes me see the reality of how people connected to each other in different ways. In this small workshop, I have changed at least 20 people mind to do a new style of living, learning and team building. To that, it is one of the prospect’s skills in the future that everyone needs to have.
There are wars, conflicts, and issues from country to state to province and to many people that are in enormous suffering. That is why there is a United Nation that collaborates with many other organizations and countries around the world. To that, different school starts to create a Model United Nation that allows students to discuss the issues that are currently happening. It is a tremendous opportunity for me or any students to learn about the current event not only in a specific country but, in a world that accommodates 195 countries. I learned to be a delegate that tries to solve the problems about countries and others. This is a great starting process for us students in the future because the United Nation can solve their 17 goals by getting help from the citizens, especially the young generation.
Most of Cambodian never had the opportunity to see a play, especially in the rural area so we have an exploration that gives Cambodian a chance to see a play. This is really an unexpected opportunity for us because, for me, I never know that Cambodian never have a chance to see a play or even have groups of people go and hosting a campaign that’s why I learn that it’s really important for us and others to show them an educated play, films, and other shows. As I experience on a trip, it made me really proud to see the villagers express their feelings and show how they really need this in the community, especially for their children to learn. This is a small part to see a true problem and knows about Cambodian needs.
Things are always full of needs and help. I learned a lot about our people’s needs and social thought. I see the conflict and feel the redness that shows it needs help. I hear the sound of shouts to get succor. My five senses all feel what is now needed. The new generation will the 17 goals to their last chapter like a novel. Every life born to “Make a Wish, Take a Chance and Make a Change” to the country and to the planet that we are living in.
