About Me: 

I earned my Bachelor of Education in 1976 at the time of the revolution and chose to contribute by volunteer teaching for two years. I then spent the next nineteen years on and off in Bangkok, seven of those years teaching mathematics, English and computer science in various schools and technical colleges.

I moved to Pattaya in 1996 as principal of the Laem Chabang Technical College, a position I didn’t particularly enjoy, and in 1999 it was time to do something for myself and I opened my own business college in Jomtien, called “Inter Network” where I taught Thai and English, computer courses and Internet services.

I enjoyed teaching Thai conversation to foreigners. I like to make learning fun. A lot of people said good teachers are definitely born - not made. Well, I have to thank my parents.
In 2006 , I established online newspaper www.pattayadailynews.com.I became the most popular newspaper in the eastern part of Thailand.
Unfortunately, In 2010, I had a stroke and had to close down all my business and I had moved to my hometown, Nan., the northern part of Thailand and again moved to Phitsanulok since 2012 and now I enjoy my new environment, new business. We provide English-to-Thai and Thai-to-English language translation services.
No matter where I am,What I do, nothing can stop me from being a writer and my favorite topic is “Gender equality cannot wait”

In Thailand like anywhere else, gender equality is a long process and never a straight line.

Another point is that most of our country sisters don't seem to be very concerned (yet) with that "double standard". It's probably more than time for every feminine (I did not say feminist) journalists, authors, teachers to talk, explain, promote and involve all people.
