"I never knew there was such a club with people from my own country. Growing up alone in Singapore, it is rare to find a Cambodian community and I am glad to have found this group of people who can relate to me and my experiences. As the president of the club, I enjoy organising events to reach out to the student population and teach them more about my country’s past and history. I hope to spread the knowledge of my humble country to even more people, especially the incoming freshmen and continue to plan more creative and engaging events in the future."
- Bibi, President of Apsara Cambodia, School of Business, Year 1
"Leaving home and coming to study in a different country might make many people feel homesick, and I am no different. However, joining the Apsara Cambodia club and working together to promote our culture has made me feel closer to home. My experience with this club has taught me that home is more than just a place; it is the people around us."
- Meileang Ly, Honorary Finance Secretary of Apsara Cambodia, School of Economics, Year 1
Depending on the number of events we plan to organize each semester, the Exco team will meet up minimally 4-5 times virtually or offline to discuss the execution of our events, each semester.
Anyone and everyone is free to join and be a member of our club. Our exco team comprises people of different nationalities and you need not be Cambodian to spread the knowledge of its culture and heritage.
We are organising fun events such as “Satya”: one of our most popular events. A virtual escape room that gets your brain juices flowing with tricky but solvable quizzes about Cambodia and its past.
Additionally, we are also organising a water festival event happening towards the end of the year in time for the Water Festival.
Do keep a lookout for these events!
