Som [58th batch (2017 Autumn forum)] [Thailand]

Participating in 58th batch (2017 Autumn forum)Thailand

Voice before the participation

I am looking forward to participating in the IATSS Forum Programme as it would be a great opportunity for me to meet my fellow ASEAN potential future leaders, IATSS staff, and distinguished lecturers to learn more about sustainable development and develop essential skills, especially leadership skills, amid Japanese context. I am certain that it would be a memorable experience and constructive networking session for both Japanese and ASEAN community.

The tentative schedule of the IATSS Forum Programme highly interests me. I am looking forward to experience all the field studies, lectures, and seminars. Furthermore, I am looking forward to meet my Japanese host family as I have always been keen on cultural exchange. I am enthusiastic to tell them about my country and learn about Japan from their perspective. I have always wanted to witness authentic Japanese lifestyle.

As for my fellow delegates, I am excited to meet the delegates from my neighbouring countries. I believe that ASEAN countries share many similarities but at the same time we have our own unique colour that distinguishes us from one another.

I have received assurance from all Thai delegates in the previous years that this Programme is definitely one of the most valuable experiences in one’s life. So I would like to assure IATSS Forum that I will do my best in both learning from and contributing to the Programme and would like to express my gratitude again for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
