Tom Evans has attended Bangkok Patana School for around three years, and through his role as Senior Delegate, has utilized his strength of listening to others’ perspectives. Tom explains further that he can be decisive when necessary, adding that he values others’ perspectives in order to form a more solid opinion of his own. This strength lends to Tom’s empathy as a peer and commitment to being an effective collaborator.
Tom reflected on his role as Senior Delegate, explaining, “One of the most important issues for us as Senior Delegates this year has been planning a series of Professional Development days, in which we presented certain student-raised concerns to Bangkok Patana staff. Obviously with COVID, we have had to think carefully about how large-scale presentations could be run and have had to adapt to the current restrictions.”
