Hi! I am Eve (Tanyakorn Thippayapokin), a former Social Policy and Development (SPD) student at Thammasat University in 2020 and a current Master's student under a Chinese government scholarship in International Public Administration and Policy (IMPA) at Renmin University of China. During my final semester in postgraduate school, I successfully completed my dissertation and I have just started my first career in the role of a project coordinator at Anti-Corruption Organisation (ACT), supervising the internationally-recognized Infrastructure Transparency Initiative (CoST) in Thailand.
I am Saw Thein Soe, a former student of SPD (Social Policy and Development) from the years 2017-2021. I am from Myanmar. After graduating from SPD, it took me a while to get a job due to the pandemic, documentation issues and the coup d’état in my country. However, while I was searching for a long-term job, I engaged in translation and transcription work as a freelancer. Fortunately, I got to work with several individual contractors and it was an amazing experience. Currently, I am working at Digiserve Cooperation Co.,Ltd as a content moderator where I mainly have to deal with social media policies. Working at this company, I come across numerous social issues which can severely bring a negative impact to society and people. Witnessing these kind of issues help me realize the value of learning social policies and why it is essential for a major such as SPD to exist for a better society. I felt really happy and proud that I was a student at SPD and able to learn all those useful lessons which are helping me overcome challenges and difficulties at my workplace. Last but not least, SPD is a place which makes you feel at home. If anyone out there is looking for a wonderful experience as a student, I highly recommend joining SPD because I believe SPD can help equip you with many skills and knowledge that you can use to create social changes. Thank you SPD and everyone involved. - Saw Thein Soe
