In his free time, Pakrinha enjoys playing many types of sports. His most memorable memory from AUPPHS-FA is the trip to Siem Reap with his classmates for community service. Pakrinha has participated in many community services at AUPPHS-FA, such as the one in Kampot, Siem Reap, and Riverside. He enjoyed studying AP Calculus because of the intellectual challenge and the excitement of problem-solving that can be put to real-world use and graphical intuition. He enjoyed AP Calculus as he is also interested in STEM areas, such as understanding logical structure, with positive teacher impact, and it brings a sense of accomplishment in learning difficult mathematical ideas. His most challenging subjects in school are AP Physics and AP Chemistry because they deal with complicated scientific topics and require high critical thinking, project-solving abilities, and mathematical knowledge.

Pakrinha says that AP Calculus is an important topic to learn if you want to work in the engineering field, but it is not the only one. He went on further to say that a job in this sector requires a thorough grasp of software engineering principles and core programming abilities, data structures and algorithms. After graduating from AUPPHS-FA, he plans to go to University and get a good job. One of the most crucial things that Pakrinha would like to emphasize to his juniors is the development of academic and personal skills, realizing that success is defined not just by grades but also by resilience, flexibility and the capacity to work and communicate successfully with others.
