What are you studying?
I’m currently studying Bachelor of Technology in Medical Educational Technology, Faculty of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University. The Department of Medical Educational Technology is designed to foster students’ skills and knowledge needed for a medical school. This program is available at only 3 universities in Thailand, focusing on the use of technology which creates a profound effect on the lecture teaching and medical student learning.
My studies include educational technology, communication, media for advertising & public relations, e.g. medical illustration, graphic design, web design, application, animation, computer assisted instruction, studio photography, advertising photography, medical photography, forensic photography, filming and editing video, medical model. I also study about medical science that requires me to design and create educational media, e.g. Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Microbiology. After my graduation I will be able to apply the knowledge of media production to the medical industry and other work inside and outside of university.
Tell us about your volunteer experiences in Denmark?
During summer in 2016, I was an exchange student and become staff preparing and building up facilities at Himmelstorm Festival. I wanted a destination far away and different from home, I chose Denmark. Another main reason was that, I had never been in Nordic countries before.
It is a small music festival hold by the eco-village Dyssekilde at day time. With the local people’s solid ideas and principles of ecology, the community even has their own windmill to power their houses. Thus, the festival itself is built on the same principles and considered a family friendly place.
Actually, travel is not always fun. Sometimes it could be horrible. My passport and cash got stolen in Copenhagen. Lost passport really caused me a big inconvenience, but in a positive side, travel is still a special part of my life.
Why did you choose to do an internship at GTCC?
I’m currently in the 4th year of my study. I finished my 4 month internship at Siriraj Hospital before taking my internship with GTCC. I really like learning new things to gain more knowledge and skills in an organization and challenging myself before I’ve graduated.
What do you think about working in a multicultural society?
In my opinion, working in a multicultural organization is a good experience and opportunity to learn working life in real environment and different cultures. There are interesting things to discuss with others and get better ideas.
