Hello everyone, who are reading my blog. In this blog, I would like to tell you about my personal experience about why I am interested in learning math.

I am Soprom Meng, a recent graduate math student from La Trobe university. I grew up in Siem Reap province, which is a small province in the northern of Cambodia, and most people know Siem Reap because of Angkor Wat temple. After I had completed high school at my hometown, I perused the Bachelor of Science majoring in mathematic in Australia.

I do not know when I started enjoying in math and how I am interested in this science major as well. However, what I know is that math makes my life a lot easier and more successful. I am saying like this because I can see that learning mathematic gives me a lot of advantages in terms of my student’s life and my everyday life. There are countless reasons that mathematic can assist you, but I will choose a few of them to talk in detail.

One of the most essential points is that mathematic is used everywhere in many courses and workplaces. Mathematic degree can build your basic knowledge in others subjects and industries such as data science, statistics, finance, accounting, etc. Another reason is that understating math can help you to improve your soft skills, which is very vital in most of the modern workplaces. For example, communications, time management, critical thinking, and decision making are the skills that you will gain from learning math. The last point I want to mention is there is a high demand in job markets for mathematicians with a high salary. Thus, you will be guaranteed that after you graduate, you are welcomed by many industries that are ready to hire you.
