I wrote a poem that was inspired by The Rent Collector’s character. 

She does for love.

She works her butt off every day

No one care if it’s her birthday.


She works for her family

Can’t complain or be lazy.


She works every day for her son

Who cares about the rumors from anyone.


She fights for her future

But,  she’s surrounded by trash and it doesn’t matter.


She fights for her hope

Even though she doesn’t have money for food and soap.


She fights for her dream

Though sometimes it melts away like ice cream.


If you don’t read, you don’t think that it’s true

You all don’t have to believe as I do.


Nisay, my sunshine


Carrying you in my calloused arm

Freaking out about my beautiful charm

What happened to you?

Nisay, are you okay?


Taking you to the main road

Looking for the magical antidote

How was your day?

Nisay, what have you done?


Riding on a free tuk-tuk with you

You feed sad, makes me feel blue

Where are you?

Nisay, can you hear me?


Screaming your name with my  dead voice

A journey to the hospital without a choice

Who hurt you?

Nisay, please talk to me…


My tears flowing down my cheeks

Working my tushie off for the entire week

Are you in pain?

Nisay, you are going to be ok!


We all need a “Cow.


Once upon a time, there was a girl who fell in love with rice wine

She’s a rent collector, but she’s barely walking on a straight line.


She’s Sopheab, but people called her “cow”

Do we all even know why or how?


She brought literature into the community

She knows that she’s going to change someone’s destiny.


She teaches Sang Ly how to read

Because that’s all she needs.


Knowledge gives her power

It is like she’s standing on a top of a golden tower.


She knows how to communicate with literature

We all know what’s going to happen in the future.


Sopheap, thank you so much

It’s such as an emotional touch.


Literature changed everything

This fairy tale has a happy ending.


Stiles is living with his father in a mansion with their luxury life. He gets what he wants from his young, gorgeous 34 years old single father, Derek. Derek would tell stories about his mother every single night just put Stiles to sleep. At the age of 16, Stiles is going on a solo trip to Greece. Derek is all alone for years and he encourages Stiles to live on his own and have his own family. Derek suggestion was rejected by his own son. Stiles decided to go back to live with his father and he saw Lydia sitting a $500K couch reading Complex Magazine with Justin Bieber on the cover. Everything is changing after Stiles met Lydia. 


Greek mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes. Gods and goddesses were the most powerful people in Greek mythology.

Athena, also known as Athene, is a very important goddess of many things, such as goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law, and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.

Athena was born after Zeus realized that his head was about to explode. Zeus ate his pregnant wife and gave birth to Athena from his head. At the second she was born she was perfectly born as a grown-up woman with armor and weapons. She was a child that is more powerful than him because of a prophecy. She has no mother, but one of the most familiar stories about Metis, her mother inside Zeus body was the goddess of crafty thought and wisdom. One of the biggest mistakes she made was killing Pallas, one of her best friends during the mock fight.  

Athena’s siblings were Artemis, Aphrodite, the Muses, the Graces, Ares, Apollo, Dionysus, Hebe, Hermes, Heracles, Helen of Troy, Hephaestus, Minos, Perseus, and Porus. She was Zeus favorite child of all. Athena was allowed to use his weapons including his thunderbolt. Zeus wants her to marry one of the gods, so she could have more power and stronger, but Athena refused and told her father she would never get married.

Athena and Poseidon, the god of the sea found a city and there’s only one of the god can own it. Zeus decided that they should have a competition, the winner own the city. Poseidon used his trident to create a river, but it’s salty. The villagers can’t do anything with salt water. Athena planted olive tree and she told villagers that they can use for food, shelter, firewood, decoration, ect. Villagers love her present much more than salt water, so they chose Athena to be the protectress of the city.

Athena was very smart and powerful when it comes to war. She was the peacemaker, which is weird because it’s connected to war. Her weakness was she didn’t show any emotion and especially around men. Parthenon temple is Athena’s temple, one of the greatest wonders of the world. She also invented flute, trumpet, chariot, bridle, pot, rake, the plow, yoke, and ship.

The symbols of Athena are owls, olive trees, snakes, aegis, armor, helmets, spears, gorgoneion. The owls were Athena symbol because an owl sat on her blind side so that she could see the whole truth. The olive tree or branch is standing for peace. The Aegis is the protective power and the protective shield. Snakes are creative power and wisdom.


In English literacy, there’s one of the assignments that we need to write an essay about coming of age and I picked to write about what changed me the most. I wrote about how haters around me changed my life. To be specific I met a lot of friends, don’t call them friends. I met a lot of people that treat me like a dirt beneath their feet and using me as their advantages. All of the people should deserve respects, no matter they are white, black, tall, short, skinny, fat or whatever they all have the same rights as we do. I could say that this is one of my most things to do in English literacy class.

I go to unusual school.  My unusual school is called Liger Learning Center (LLC). This school is in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Our school has 50 students and they come from different provinces. At LLC we are studying two languages and they are Khmer and English. Other than that we are studying about math, STEM, literacy, exploration. Exploration is one thing we focus on. Now my exploration is Bunong, which means I learn about the Bunong people. by going to the Bunong community to ask the Bunong people about their life, culture, farming. In literacy we do reading, writing, listening and speaking. I really love this school because we are studying for free and I can make a lot of friends.
