Senior Researcher and Consultant, BBC Media Action
Course: Master of Educational Leadership and Management
University: University of Sydney
Studying at the University of Sydney in Australia ultimately turned out to be the most rewarding, life-changing experience, although the adjustment stage to the Australian education system, the cultures, and living standards was quite overwhelming at first. Not only have I developed those higher-order thinking skills including critical thinking and problem-solving, but I also have expanded my networks from all around the world. I have met amazing people from the lectures and especially from the school events around the campus. They have become my lifelong friends whom I am still in contact with even after we have returned to our home country.
Now, I am more than ready to bring about changes to the education system in Cambodia. This academic qualification has been a big contribution to where I am today, gaining a management and leadership position where I have been able to lead and manage Cambodian and Expat teachers as well as educational projects. With the knowledge and skills in research from my study, I have embarked on a new journey as a researcher doing action research to improve current teaching and management practices in my workplace. Finally, a key takeaway message from my personal and academic experience in Sydney is that you should feel grateful for challenging situations presented to you because they can make you become unstoppable.
