Hi! My name is Dara. I am 19 years old, and a 4 th year dental student at University of Health Sciences. When you see my ‘Dental’, you would probably wonder why would a student in the health-related sectors be doing something so far from his own profession? Well, I am here to LEARN. I believe learning is not just about staying in your comfort zone. It is about breaking the bubble and feeling uneasy toward an issue. Barcamp has never ceased to teach me about social life. Never have I been friendly to people I do not know, yet Barcamp taught me how to interact with people who are way higher in both achievements and social status. I have encountered many people, friends and a lot of more. And that concludes my life motto: “Never let major or profession stands as the obstacle for LEARNING, because this little knowledge that you gain will surely come in handy in the future.’’
In order to explore myself more in the new world of volunteerism, I have applied as a member in Barcamp ASEAN 2017. My name is Phon Sopharath , I am currently pursuing Bachelor of Art in International Studies at the Institute of Foreign Language and Bachelor of Art in Financial and Accounting at University of Economic and Finance. Besides studying at both university, I devote myself in social activities because I do love volunteering, sharing, communicating with people from the different diversity. It’s a potential path to fulfill myself with knowledge and experiences which I had never exposed to. This is my first time to work with Barcamp and it’s a greatest opportunities for me to learn more about the technologies, educational systems and entrepreneurship skill around the world through this volunteer. Last but not least, I was able to beat my introvert side and be able to work alongside with my teammates to finally completed my assigned job as well.

Called me ‘ Nin ‘. I’m sophomore of MIS(Management Information System) at Setec Institute. First, I don’t why I chose to study MIS too, maybe it sounds great. But then, when I started school, I was able to code few small programs by myself without any problems . Besides, I also could help my classmates with code which is I really proud of myself but that’s enough to stop learning yet. From that time on, I start to like what I’m currently study. Moreover, I have lots of ideas in my head about doing business with technology which I study about.Having ideas isn’t enough yet for me to reach my goal because I still have to study a lot about it and do more reasearch about technology because I don’t want to fail.Then, I know BarCamp, an event that provides general people, university’s student widely discussion about technology. BarCamp inspires, shares experience, discusses, give us opportunities and communicate for free of charge. With BarCamp, I believe that it would help booth my speed and ability to reach my goal very soon.

Become a volunteer is the best way for me to learn about new things. How about you?

Hi I’m Sofy, I am a sophomore at RUPP department of IBM. I first experienced volunteerism when I am in grade 11. It was a charity. That happiness feeling of what you give without expecting anything from them still got me overwhelmed until today. This act like a bridge for me to see the world differently. For me meeting a lot of people and interact with them is like reading a lot of books. I try to finish them all but sometimes I have to stop reading them. I always challenging myself, try to step out of my comfort zone to see what I’m capable of. To me Barcamp is my new discovery.

Hi, I’m Serei. I decided to apply for Barcamp ASEAN 2017 because I am very enthusiastic about learning new things from different people, and I also had partaken in Mini Barcamp 2017 from which I came to learn that Barcamp is not just an organization that youths come to volunteer for a certain event, but a community in which committed individuals can learn from each other to sustain their growth mindset and to expand their leadership potentials through various activities and programs.
My name is Yen Sosomphors. I’m 18years old. Currently, I’m a sophomore student majoring in media management, RUPP. I have never been in volunteerism, but after stepping in university life, I realized that I should get out from my comfort zone, and start to involve with my society. So this is my first time in volunteering also at BarCamp. Honestly, I feel nervous, yet so excited to learn more outside class. I know there will be a lot of challenges, but if there is no challenge in life, there is no grow either.
Volunteering plays an important role in country development. Making a modern and innovative society has been always my wish since I was young. I always seek for chances to participate in social work as much as I can using my skills and talents. That brought me to join BarCamp volunteer team and I do not regret my decision. I feel pleasure to be in the team and the volunteering activities really help me improve myself from time to time. I hope that this community will grow so that all the younger generations can have the opportunity to utilize the new technology and integrate it into business ideas to take part in developing the country in the future.
Learning from school is a way that we use to improve knowledge. But it is not enough to match the right thing or to feel like the book say. Being a volunteer in BARCAMP provide me the knowledge that get from our own experience which will guide us to remember and understand the right thing in the real situation. It is the right opportunity and I am so happy that I can have chance to communicate and work with new friend to help BARCAMP together.
