Host Organization: Human Rights and Development Foundation (HRDF), Chiang Mai
I am studying at Chiang Mai University, Faculty of Political Science, majoring in International Affairs. The reason why I am interested in the role of Saphan Siang Youth Ambassadors because I think Youth Ambassador is a volunteer who is a medium of communication and can disseminate the knowledge about migrant workers, understanding in human rights. Youth Ambassadors have a great chance to make friends outside of classroom and become a mentor, have a great chance to practice skill-building and leadership training. At the same time, they are able to build self awareness and knowledge of diversified issues and being a positive role model for others. I expect an opportunity for young people to develop entrepreneurial and responsible leadership qualities and skills. Also, build network of friends and improve public speaking and group leadership skills, while learning about diversity by joining the program.
My experiences as a youth ambassador will enhance my future opportunities as it build my resume and qualifications. In conclusion, it’s a very good platform to interact with the people in the community to achieve the objective of promoting better understanding between the Thais and migrant workers.
