Khmer Model United Nation

Have you ever heard of the Model United Nations? If not, that is fine, Model United Nation (M.U.N) is a model of the annual conference of the United Nations. The conference discusses different topics or issues around the world with the honors of delegates from many countries together. MUN is pretty much the same. It is an educational simulation for students to understand the world-issues, international relations, especially to experience the United Nations (UN) conference. 

There have been so many MUN conferences happening before but guess what, it has only been in English. So, our facilitator along with some of our students thought of a very unique idea. We wanted to make the first-ever MUN in the Khmer language. The purpose of this was to teach us, the Cambodian students to understand the use of professional language in Khmer, and also provide the opportunity for the other millions of Cambodian students out there who only know a little bit of English or can not understand the language. With the Khmer version being made, they can understand and experience the same as the casual conferences but with their own language.

There have been a few times where the Khmer MUN is being held in our school with our students and a few other schools. But there has not been any time where every student has participated together yet. With all the preparations and research, we made it possible and had the Khmer-Model United Nations conferences participated by every student in our school. Well, there are only a bit over 100 students in our school, if you do not know yet, and wonder how many students are there. Feel free to know more about our school with the website:

There were four general conferences along with a security general conference. Each conference had two topics to discuss. I was the delegate of the Kingdom of Cambodia under the topic of “Legalizing the same-sex marriage” and “Drug Trafficking”. We had plenty of time to do research and practice our speeches. It was my first time experiencing MUN and I was very excited.

The first day of the Khmer Model United Nations. Everyone dressed professionally in suits and was looking very good. When it came to the opening speech, I was the first one up because of the alphabetical order in Khmer. I could not tell how excited, and I was a bit nervous, to be honest. But I made it in the end, and I was so proud and congratulated myself for finishing the first main job of the day. Everyone’s speech was very professional and got the job done with quality. After all the opening speeches, everyone worked with different delegations on finding resolutions to our topics as some agreed on the topic and some did not but we had to discuss the topic and find the right resolutions.

The second day was the debating day. Well, it wasn’t like a debate, it was made to be more like a discussion where the main submitters presented their resolutions and the other delegates ask questions and discuss one by one. I got myself the opportunity to ask and gave a few speeches as well. We could not talk with anyone but sending letters through the admins of the conference.

At the end of the day, everyone came together to do the full conference with the other final topics. Here came the fun part as we finished the event by having a quiz night and the ending ceremony in which the facilitators gave their impressions along with the chairs, and delegates.

Overall, it was a magnificent experience to be part of the conference, to take the opportunity to know more about the real-world issues, and to understand the concept and what it was like to be in the United Nations meeting.

World Robot Olympiad – Cambodia Round

Several weeks ago, I was in one of the teams represented my school, Liger Leadership Academy, to participate in a robotics competition called “World Robot Olympiad”. That was the first ever robotics competition that was held in Cambodia. That was not an international competition, it was a local competition and needed a team to qualify to the international competition in Thailand.

The competition was in a university called Zaman. During the competition, there were several teams coming from different schools in Cambodia. Those teams were from Liger Leadership Academy, Zaman International School, Neeson Cripps Academy, and Jay Pritzker Academy. The competition was divided into two different levels, senior and junior, and I was in the junior team. There were two junior teams from Liger but there weren’t any senior team from Liger because the seniors are doing VEXrobotics competition, now. (Click on these names to visit my teammates’ portfolios; Ena, Wathna, Bandith, Votey & Chornson )

The competition was from the morning until the evening. Our robot went very well and our team had a wonderful teamwork, too. At 5 o’clock in the evening, the awarding and closing ceremony started. At that time, there were special people that came to the ceremony such as;

Let me tell you about the result. Both of the Liger robotics teams were very successful because we won the second and first place! Isn’t that brilliant? Two teams, two trophies, one the top! Everybody was very excited and my teammates and my families were there and they were really proud. Other teams also did very good jobs, too, and no one loss, it was all about experiences! Thanks for reading and visiting my portfolio, have a wonderful day!

Khmer – Round 1

Khmer is my first language! I learn English but I will never forget Khmer. In this first term of Khmer, we learned how to interview people in a formal way, how to dress formally at the business conference in Khmer language and making Khmer poems.

After I learned, I gain so many knowledge and here are the links to my lessons that I’ve done in Khmer class. (Interview People), (Formal Dress).

The poem below is a Khmer poem that I made and if you don’t understand, it’s a poem about 24 provinces and a city in Cambodia. My friends’ poem and mine will be putting in a school poem book and it will be published soon. Thank you for reading!
