As a kid that lives with a family that struggles with poverty, My parents never gave up a dream of getting their children a great education as possible but they can never do that. I only get to learn from the government school, it’s not safe, But one day, there was a magical school that appears from nowhere, it was Liger Leadership Academy school. My parents tried their best to get me into there by running to everywhere, asking everyone about this school, and buying items for me to take the test.
If I were to relate to what I had changed Cambodia by now, I can see that I am a part of the change in the society. If I would reclaim my life story from the beginning of this topic I would be said that I can’t afford a really high-quality school. So then I had this amazing exploration called Bambujaya, this name is coming from this new Cambodia private school-Bambujaya located in Phnom Penh, that hopes to offer an affordable option to government school students, so I got hired by the founder to adopt grade 3 textbook, into supplemental activities which mean that we are not trying to change the Khmer curriculum; rather, we are adapting it by writing activities called “add-ons” that are more engaging, hands-on, and address multiple learning styles. So they can have it for teaching the student in the school.
The add-ons allow the students to study also having fun with the activity that we provide to them. So if I was born again it won’t be hard for my family to find a high-quality school also affordable.
Also, people around us always busy that they don’t really care about the awareness of our surrounding that can help them with idea or knowledge that can help them in the future. Like the awareness of Rabies that spread by dogs and cats that live strong with you all the time. We always knew that Rabies come from dogs and cats but we don’t know how to prevent it from spreading it to human. The awareness that we facing it can solve we just need to the action by go them and talk about the problem and how to solve it. So we had this amazing team that working with Animal Recule Cambodia too, run out to the community and tell them about Rabies with the poster, information card, and by month.
But we didn’t stop there.
We got our self a final task, it was going out and vaccinate dogs and cats in our community for free; by the donation from Animal Rescue Cambodia (ARC). In this case, we need to get an abundance of jobs done in time to get this happen. I was assigned to communicate with the village chief for the permission to allow us to vaccinate dogs and cats and we need the village chief to spread the word to a different family in order to get this mission a success. By the end of all the hard work -communication with the village chief and villager- now it time for the fun time with hard work involved.
We had to go out and vaccinate cats and dogs through two villages, which are Chompous Kaek and Koh Krobey. For both villages, we got to vaccinate 126 dogs and cats combined. So this a really successful day that I had to help my village -Koh Krobey- and nearby village for getting Rabies. This is just a small area village but it can make a fair amount of difference.
This is just a small project that we learn about that help to create a small change in some area that could make a gigantic difference in the future. Although change doesn’t happen immediately I believe it will pay off one day.
I greatly cheer up for anyone who believes in yourself cause you have the ability to did, it not other who that you that. You can be anyone or anything by you try to become that person. If you want to be a change agents for your country. Don’t wait for the right time, make the time wait for you to do it.
Whenever I struggle with something I always say this to myself “All is well, if I’m happy, it fine for me and it also fine for other cause they can’t see inside of me”
