Hello from Thailand. My name is Hathaiphat Terasarun or Belle. I work as Business Development Supervisor for Yamamori Trading Co., Ltd. and also a researcher (Food Technologist) for Yamamori R&D Center. Firstly, I would like to give my appreciation to IATSS Forum committees for giving me the great opportunity and to the generousness of my Japanese boss for letting me join the Forum. To be honest, after I studied all the 61st IATSS Forum Program under the theme study of “Sustainable Community Design”, I was nervous at the first place because most topics in the program are not in my field and I am afraid I may not be good enough to be the representative of Thailand. Then, I think about the motto of the Forum "Thinking and Learning Together" and also the aim of bringing out the best qualities in individuals, so, my feeling was changed to be excited because I strongly believe that my ability will be totally stepped up to another level after finish 55-day program. In addition, personally, I am impressed in the global goals of “Sustainable Development” but I still has not much idea to achieve those goals. I, as an employee of a private sector and a member of the world, aim to utilize the knowledge obtained from the Forum for contributing to the global goals as much as I can. Yamamori is a Japanese food company which parent company is located in Japan. Even I have been working for Japanese company more than 4 years, I still eager to learn more and more about Japanese culture during “Culture Exchange Activities” together with getting to know my neighbor countries throughout ASEAN. Lastly, I would like to give a promise that I will dedicate all of my knowledge and experience to the Forum for making the 61st batch to be meaningful.
