Congratulations to Rebecca for her offers from University College Dublin and Franklin University in Switzerland!
“I am still currently on the fence on my decision, as I am still awaiting the response of two other universities. However, I am planning on studying Environmental Science in the future. which is why I am leaning towards Franklin. From the youngest age, I remember people always asking me “What would you like to do in the future?” I would always give a whimsical answer related to nature. Be it ‘fisher lady,’ ranger for nature reserves, marine biologist etc. So the field I wanted to study was set, it was just determining what I can do in that field. After my expedition to Antarctica, my reason to work with the environment solidified. I came back with a goal; to work on preserving the environment. In my opinion, the way to do that is to understand the environment, understand how different factors can influence it. That is why I decided to study Environmental Science.”
Time at Bangkok Patana
“I have been a student at Bangkok Patana since Year 4. Playing on the Junior Varsity Softball and Junior Varsity Football was important and I also took part in the Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.”
“As a member of the Student Environmental Council I helped organise the first trip to Chiang Mai and helped install renewable/sustainable solar kits for the rural village. Also, I took part in the proposal to install solar panels in our school. Currently, I am working on building a Bangkok Patana forest. I was President of the Patana Community Garden and am a part of the CAT club One4One.”
“In addition, I play the piano, I’ve been playing piano for roughly 14 years now. I hope to organise a poetry open mic night with a friend once things get back to normal!”
