Since Rob O’Toole (IT Learning Advisor) has asked students to create the entry, I think it is a good opportunity for me to start my Blogs by introducing myself.
My full name is Tubtim Pratipwattanawong. ‘Tubtim’ means Ruby in Thai. About my surname, believe it or not, there are many many thai ppl who have longer surname than my family’s surname. I am a 22 years old post graduate student (MA International Design and Communication) at University of Wariwck. Originally, I was born in Bangkok, Thailand and lived there till I finished my primary school. Then my parents have decided to send me to study overseas and this is where my journey started
My first destination was Peneng, Malaysia. It is a small but very nice Island and its not too far my bangkok ( 22 hours by train or an hour by plane). After I done the GCSE exam in year 11 from The International School of Peneng, I had a plan to study Diploma and Degree in Perth, Australia. This time I choose the destination by myself as I believe that Australia is one of the countries that have a strong multi-cultural characteristic. It tooks me 4 years to completed my degree in Mass Communication (major in Film and TV, minor in marketing) at Curtin University of Technology.
After that i took a break by having a holiday in taiwan for 2 months before went back to Thailand to start my career. my first fulltime job was to be an educational consultant at STA Travel. I worked there for a year and then i quit as i have to come to study master at Warwick.
This is the summary of my life so far, and i believe that there are still a long long way for me to go.
