Stasha (pronounced Stay-sha) is from a small town in Northern California in the US, and earned two Bachelors of Arts degrees while attending California State University at Chico, one in International Relations and another in Asian Studies; she earned her Master’s degree from Chiang Mai University in International Development.
“I studied International Relations and Asian Studies and during that time I spent a year abroad studying in Chiang Mai. Following graduation, I did an internship at the Unites States Consulate General in Chiang Mai and from there I decided to do my Master’s degree in International Development at Chiang Mai University. Counting the time studying abroad, I lived in Chiang Mai for about four years before moving to Bangkok about a year ago. I was working as the Grants and Communications Officer for the Master’s and PhD in International Development Programme (MAIDS-GRID) at the Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University.
Before I came to Bangkok Patana for my interview, I looked it up on the web and was really impressed with the wide range of ECAs for students. The school offers something different, there are options for every student’s desires and skills sets. Once I came here, I was even more impressed by the facilities, but I really love the diversity and international aspect of the school.
I really enjoy meeting new people, because I am new I would love to have the parents introduce themselves and get to know them on a first name basis. I look forward to becoming part of the Bangkok Patana community through my interactions with parents and students at Reception.”
