ABOUT ME: I graduated from Thammasat University with a bachelor's degree in French and English. While studying at the university, I was awarded a one-year scholarship from the French government to be an exchange student at the Center for Applied Linguistics at Franche-Comte University in Besancon, France, where I earned a diploma in French Studies.

I have been working as a contract lecturer in English at Maejo University in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and works for a range of translation companies and private clients at home and abroad.
