An interview with one of CASA's alumni, Ms Ou Chouly, by VOA.
Original report from Washington
25 May 2009
Chouly Ou, a conservationist and biologist, hopes to use her education to save the fish of the Mekong river. Her plan is to pursue a PhD to gain technical knowledge on fish population modeling.
“I plan to develop a model for sustainable management of the fish population in the Mekong river, the largest and most important river in Cambodia,” Chouly Ou said in an interview with VOA Khmer.
Chouly Ou was born and raised in Battambang province. After finishing high school, in 1999, she pursued an undergraduate degree in biology at the Royal University of Phnom Penh.
After graduating in 2003, she was given a scholarship to study for a master’s in natural resources management, at the Asian Institute of Technology, in Thailand. High marks earned her a fellowship at Roskilde University, Denmark, in 2005.
She returned to the Royal University, in 2006, this time as a lecturer at the department of environmental science.
She worked for a conservation organization, Birdlife International, monitoring the Biodiversity Conservation Corridor Initiative. This allowed her to conduct fieldwork in forest areas like the Cardamom mountains and the eastern plains of Mondulkiri province.
She is now working for a PhD on fish population modeling.
“I believe that the fish population modeling I aim to develop will serve as a guide for sustainable management of fishery resources in the country,” she said.
Later this month, the conservationist will travel to Cambridge, Mass., to attend a Fulbright Enrichment Science and Technology Seminar.
She will be among the first Cambodian students to pursue a PhD with Fulbright funding.
“Participating in the seminar, I will learn about applied sciences, micro-enterprises and research and development laboratories,” she said.
Before attending the seminar, she plans to spend one week visiting the US capital and New York City, she said.

Mr. Chanthy delivered CASA's fund to Mr. Mongkol
On the evening of November 06, 2008, there was a brief amicably meeting between CASA's members and Mr. Chhay Mongkol (a project coordinator of Khmer Language project in Surin). In this meeting we had delivered some charity fund from our members for his project.
Though it was a small fund, but this has shown our hearty support and contribution in conserving our Khmer language.
Mr. Mongkol had brought us some documents about his projects. He said it would be nice for us to visit Surin some days to see his project there. He also has a plan for Kathen procession ceremony to a khmer pagoda during this month.
Finally, he said he was thankful for this charity and hope to meet us again in Surin.
On October 25, 2005, Asian Institute of Technology celebrated the Welcome show event for all new students who come to learn here.

Coconut Shell Dance
Once again, we have brought our country and cultural image and identity to the stage of international community of AIT. And this is what everyone of our CASA's members should be proud of our strong effort to participate the performance in this year's Welcome Show.
What we had chosen to performe in this event were Mr and Miss AIT contest, and the Coconut Shell Dance (robam koah trolauk).
Under the theme "Bond of Togetherness", this Welcome show reflected a memorable moment that all AITians have been living and working together in unity.
Even though we were not in the winner's list, the unity of our group makes all of us very happy and delightful with our well performances, and we still have hope for the next show competition.
All in all, what we need to keep in mind is that, unity is one of the keys to be success in our daily life and work. As an ancient quote said: "United we stand; divided we fall".
As one of CASA's members, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all CASA's members who have provided good cooperation and support, strong effort in practice and performance by sacrifying valuable time for our association as well as for our beloved nation. May this spirit of unity remain in the heart of everyone of us and in every CASA's generation forever..
