During my first year of grad school, we were given a book titled "FOCUS: The Hidden Driver of Excellence", by Daniel Goleman when we won a group work competition. The book came from one of our judges who had brought few books for the winners. She gave us this book, specifically because one of my teammates (to be clear, it was not me!) was really good at listening. She pointed out arguments in which our opponents accidentally made mistakes. She was truly focused while the rest of us might have ha...

A couple days ago, I logged into my Facebook account at around 10:30 am. I just needed a short break from my work. As I scrolled down the newsfeed, I came across a video shared by one of my friends. The title was “A valuable lesson for a happy life”. The word “happy life” captured my attention and I decided to view the clip.At the beginning of the video, a teacher was explaining to the students about the life that each of us has. He mentioned that we are all capable of achieving anything if “we...

April 12 was my birthday. It was not just a birthday, but the beginning of my 26-year-old self. Life has given me so much and I have made excuses not to look back and reflect on what I have done. My 25th year of existence has been marked by an incredible journey. It is not only about completing my graduate school and being able to do what I have always wanted to; but it is also the time I started to feel more connected to myself, other people, and knowing why I do what I have been doing.April 12...

After I was done with my grad school and have had some experiences in field data collection, I have decided to be a researcher and a lecturer. Going to the fields, walking around in the villages, talking to the local authorities and of course to our beneficiaries, it has been so lovely for me. Those beautiful and meaningful experiences have been shared in class to my students. With all those memories, ideas, hopes and dreams, I have lived wholeheartedly. It has been fortunate t...

Sisters are a blessing and the greatest gift that I have been magically given. My elder sister has been my role model in many aspects of life and always pushes me to strive for a greater life than I deserve. Up on completion of my MSc, I moved back to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to earn my experience as a researcher and lecturer. It was a coincidence that the youngest sister of ours finished her high school and moved in with me for her undergrad. It has been fun and loving moment during...

Things do not happen the way we want them to. And that has been exactly what happened to our friendship. We have known each other since grade 9, but we studied in different schools. Accidentally, we happened to study in the same university and took some classes together in the freshman year regardless of major. After our first year, you left to country X and I chose to study in another distant country, Y for our undergraduate. Little did I know how to survive in foreign land! I...

Valentine’s Day was yesterday. The day on which many of us celebrate the devotion to love. It is important to us as love is one of the fundamental needs for human nature. It represents our kindness and compassion in many forms like the love of life, love of nature, love of others or the love of ourselves. More importantly, love is a strong emotion that can benefit our physical, emotional and spiritual health. When I was an undergrad, my professor once told me, “Sreymom, whene...

Life is a journey that starts on the first day we are conceived. As we grow up there are a ton of scarifies made for us and costs like health care, food, education, entertainments etc. Not to mention the non-monetary support from family, relatives, friends or the nations. Therefore, we should be grateful for the lives we have and treasure all the moments we face throughout the journey. More importantly, we should make every day count. Below are the things I do and tell to myself...
