“Coming on this trip allowed me to see a side to Thailand that I never knew - beyond the bright lights of Bangkok, the bustling night markets of Chiang Mai, the serene beaches of Pattaya .. lies the welcoming hearts of the Thai people. I received nothing short of the most overwhelming hospitality here in Phichit, a province that no one outside Thailand knows. In a completely foreign land, my host offered me help whenever I need it, and my students make me look forward to school every day."
— Levonne Goh, Year 1 Political Science Major
