TIPS for SAT Examination

I had never been a good test taker. Especially, standardized tests such as the SAT and the other Advanced Placement courses. Therefore at the start of 2018, I had a mini SAT boot camp, which was to go over strategies and great tips to face the exam in confident. These are the two tips that I personally find helpful. 

Note *** There are so many more tips online that might be helpful to you

  1. Time Management – Answer easy questions first
     In the reading section of the SAT, there are 5 passages that include 10 to 11 questions and a total time of 65 minutes. Which break down to about 13 minutes per passage. Which means you have about a little than a minute to answer the question. Therefore, when facing questions that you are not comfortable at answering skip to the easier ones first.

    *** Don’t forget to mark it down in your answer sheet so that you won’t forget to come back or messed up circling the wrong questions

  2. Always begin with the easier passage 

There are three main passages in the SAT. There are science, US literature, and history and literature. While practicing for the exam, notice the passages that you managed to score a higher score on. Then on the exam, choose to do those passages first before jumping into the old confusing literature passage.

Changing the Face of Medicine

A few weeks ago, in physic class, we had a small assignment that required a research paper written about Women participation in STEM. When talking about famous people that have changed the world throughout science, technology, engineering, and math women are not often brought up into the conversations, even though there are a tremendous amount of women that changed the world throughout the aspect of STEM. 

This is the research paper that I have written about a woman that change the face of medicine.


“Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. ” Looking through the life of a woman named Elizabeth Blackwell, inspired a tremendous amount of people, especially women in accomplishing their field in a medical study.


Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell was born on February  3, 1821, in Bristol, England. She was raised in a household that strongly believes in Education. Blackwell’s family moved to the United State in 1832, both for financial issues and to join the anti-slavery movement. Six years later after having been moved to America, unfortunately, her father passed away. Even Though her father passed away, her mother and two older sisters worked as an educator. In addition, Elizabeth Blackwell also gets her first job as a teacher in the US. As a group of educated people, the Blackwell’s family campaigned for women’s rights and supported the anti-slavery movement.


Further on, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman that earn the first M.D degree from the New York’s Geneva Medical College, in 1849. After being the first woman who earned the first M.D degree, Elizabeth Blackwell has changed the face of medicine. She encouraged many more women to get in medical school. With the help of her sister and another doctor, Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell has established the New York Infirmary for Women and Children at 64 Bleecker Street in 1857. This institution and its medical college for women (opened 1867) provided training and experience for women doctors and medical care for the poor. Elizabeth Blackwell was also an author of many books related to science.


With a lot of accomplishment, at the same time, there were also challenges of her way to the success. At the time, when she was finding universities, most of the universities and classes were men and sometimes forbidden for women to study. She applied to the New York’s Geneva Medical College and the man students in the class needed to vote for her to get accepted to the school. The man students took it as a joke and voted yes. As a woman, she also gets a lot of discriminations, which sometimes discourages her from the studying. Moreover, while doing a procedure on an infant she contracted a disease that caused one of her eyes to go blind. With one blind eye, she could not pursue her dream of becoming a surgeon.


Currently, women are not the spotlight of the STEM field. It is important to spotlight their accomplishment since it encouraged many other females to participate in the STEM field. Representing the male students as personally believe that there should be an equality between men and women.  

Get Accepted for Virtual Foreign Exchange

I applied for Virtual Foreign Exchange because I am interested in other countries cultures and their lives style. Since I can’t afford to go to the other countries this community would be the best internet platform for me to resolve all of wonders and questions in a safe environment. I could also use this platform to gain knowledge in a way such as: communcation, networking, and cultural exposure from other people all around the world. 





First Beach Ultimate

This is the first ever beach ultimate in Cambodia. I am really lucky that I was a part of it. In addition, the best part of the trip was learning new skills from the other people and also get to know more people that have the same interests as me. As I played more and more I have a better understanding of the spirit of the game. I really like how at the end of the game, both teams came together and create a spirit circle to speak about what you like and what you don’t about the game. I can’t wait to attend this event again next year. 

Surrounded by tourists and aside to the ocean, the game of frisbee was being played. Frisbee is a new sport in Cambodia, people that were watching had interest and were curious about the sport. Many asked about it and few sat under shades and enjoyed the game. 

Volunteer for Khmer Sight Foundation

It is killing me watching the Cambodian elders who have no eyes vision. They could not appreciate the view of the environment around them, they can not see people who they love. When volunteered for the Khmer Sight Foundation, I put my full effort to help those elders in my community to do an eye check and get better eyesight. The patients were mostly older people with age around 50-60 years old and they got cataract which causes their eyes sight to lose. For those people who have eyes cataract, we talked to them and ask them kindly to get an eye surgery to help improve their vision. But our challenge was, those old people need to work, and take care of their grandchildren, so they resisted not to go with to the hospital. When faced this problem, our team were trying to convince them in every possible way for them to change their mind. Throughout the whole morning, we had been very successful and I felt so great helping those Cambodian elders. In addition, by volunteering in this event, it helped me to wonder and do more research about the knowledge of human’s eyes. 

Basketball Competition

I have trained basketball for about 2 years with my coach and all of my Liger’s friends. Most of Liger students are really athletics. A day before the holiday, we had a basketball competition against an international school called ICAN. We tried really hard, and every one of us was doing great. Although we tried really hard, we still lost the game.

A year later we had a rematched and I hit three points winning shot. The score was 17 – 16. Everyone was so excited and, I was so excited. 


Training for the game!



Waste Management – Exploration

In my life I always talk about the ways that I can change Cambodia. In this exploration I have learned and know how to make change for my country while I am also earning profit from it. This exploration is really help me to realize how difficult is it to start up a business. Before we start the business we need to research and making a feasibility study. Feasibility study is the study of a start up business to know if your business will make profit or it feasible. Every businesses should do the feasibility study before they start their business because they do not need to waste time and waste their money if the business is not feasible. I was working in Economic Feasibility section in our feasibility study booklet and it is a whole new idea for me. Our team also visited a school that made our of plastic bags, car’s wheels, and threw away glass bottles. I hope that Cambodia will implement this types of school and building in our society. I really proud of all the works that I did and also the work that we did together as a team. In conclusion from our feasibility study I think our business is feasible if we want to run it in the future.     


Cambodia First Beach Clean Up

On 17th, October it was the first time that Cambodia has international beach clean up day. Liger’s students are the first Cambodian that do this event. We went to Kept beach and cooperate with some international volunteers. I was really proud of myself that help to clean the beach and make it better. I have been the row model for the younger kids that were watching also for all Cambodian to see and take the action. We hope more Cambodians could join us next year and help to change Cambodia.

Changing Cambodia 2015-2016

In the world, life is not constant the only thing that it constant is change. Changes are always happen in our life. It doesn’t care that you are a poor person or a rich person, smart or stupid, beautiful or ugly, they always find you and make things different. There are two types of changes. Change can be good or it can be bad, depend on what kind of change would you want to change. For me, becoming one of the Liger’s students was the biggest change that I made so far in my life. When I study at Liger I have a lot of opportunities to change my life and my country.

It is the fourth year at Liger. I have involved in a project called Google Science Fair. It’s a competition that have thousands of young people from different country and have the same passion about science. We were trying to use our science knowledge to create positive changes in our community and make the difference it the world. My project was about using the plastic bottles and plastic bags in a different way. By using plastic bottles and plastic bags in the right way is to use plastic bags to put in the plastic bottles. After we filled the bottle with plastic, the bottles are strong enough to use to build bench, small road, etc. So when we collect the plastic bags and plastic bottles. it will help to clean our environment, community, and our world.  We choose to make this project because we thought that plastic is one of the biggest problem in the world. I have this opportunity and I also want to share it to young Cambodian to have the same opportunity. 

The first exploration of the year was learning about Phnong indigenous minority. In this project we thought that Phnong is part of Cambodian and not a lot of people know about them and their culture. Our team decided to create a book that include tons of information about Phnong people. To research for the information out team went to the Phnong’s community and learned about them to create our book. We spent five days with the Phnong and we got lots of information that we can use it to write our book. In the book my jobs were writing and editing with my others three teammates. It the conclusion we raised three main problems that we don’t really have the best answers or solutions to. But we could only share share our idea at the Sharation. But for me I really encourage the government to help to make the positive changes. We hope people are buying more book, so we can spread our words.

This year we have the opportunity to create our own exploration with a group of people between two-six people. I was participated in Khmer Interior Design(KID) exploration. Our goal in this exploration was to designed one of the apartment in Liger school and we noticed that in Cambodia there wasn’t a lot of interior designers. I have learned that every things that appear for you to see, they have their purpose and explanation. In the exploration I have designed the kitchen and living room with my partner Thiny.

The fourth year was a fabulous year because the secretary of state could learn and know bout our school. Liger was honored to invite the secretary of state and some important people from different government schools. Every students were presenting about something about why Liger is a unique school. I was sharing one of Liger curriculum(STEAM). I think that I had give the leaders of education something that they could change in the government school.

Next year we will be Liger’s senior students, so we will have our own house ans starting to cook the food for ourselves. I was working on an exploration called Liger Senior Cook Book. And our goals were finding recipes, writing method and published a book, so people that don’t know how to cook could learn from our book. We were divided in three teams. We have created change by making the book so people could learn from it.


All these exploratioons have help me to make changes in my community and my country.
