Hello everybody (“Sawaddee Kha”), I am Titaporn Limpisvasti from Bangkok, Thailand. “Hajimemashite” Thank you very much both IATSS Forum Family of Thailand and Japan for warmth welcoming me to be one of your family. I am very pleasant and honored to have such a great opportunity in my life. I will do my best in learning, sharing and developing myself with the other young professionals from the ASEAN countries and Japan together throughout the motto of IATSS Forum “Thinking and Learning Together”. I would not only gain various international knowledge and experience but also foster social contribution, interpersonal and intercultural relationship with global networks. Specially, all the programs will take place in Japan, my beloved countries. I feel admired Japanese people and their unique and rich culture so I hope one day I will have a chance to learn Japanese lifestyle and their developments in the real place. Lastly, I am looking forwards to seeing you all in Japan. Take good care everybody “Douzo Yoroshiku Onegaiitashimasu”
Dear IATSS Forum Family, A special word of thanks I would love to say, Your thoughtful, kind gesture certainly made my day. Our days tend to be fantastic - always learning and sharing You give me the precious gift, “IATSS Forum family”. Last year (September-November 2014), it was a memorable learning experience for me to participate in one of the best leadership training courses “IATSS Forum” (Batch 52). In my view, IATSS Forum is a very special program aiming to develop leadership of young professionals from Japan and ASEAN countries. It is a great opportunity for me to learn and experience various activities such as theme study “Sustainable Community Design, general study as general seminars, field study, cultural exchange activities and others which cover both art and science fields under the motto “Thinking and Learning Together” with Japanese and ASEAN participants, volunteers, lecturers and also Japanese people. We all have gained various knowledge, skills and positive attitude as well as international networking and last long friendship. Specially, I believe that the effective leadership knowledge and skills learning from this program will be beneficial for both institute and my society. I realize that “If you want to go faster, please go alone. But if you want to go further, please go together.” I am certainly sure that I would go with you, my IATSS Forum Family.
