My TED story
As part of TED's OTP, I'm among Thai TED translators and a Language co-ordinator. It's been a wonderful ride that allow me to exchange my ideas and connect to people in TED family. I was one of the TEDxChiangMai 2013 organization team, a group of inspiring people who always wish to organise more TEDx in Thailand. I'm also looking forward to getting the best out of TED; This could be great for science, education, and reading community in my country. And in the same time, feedbacks from these possible activities may assist TED development to the next limit.
