The trip to Maekok was an amazing experience that took my fears to the next level. As being put in spot as a teacher we had the opportunity to teach first graders to fifth graders. The school that we taught in was called Mae Salak, which is a school that was located in the center […]

There are many things that I experienced from the global citizenship week trip. Although it was a rough week for all of the people that went to the Maekok River Village to help out some little kids, overall I think I had a lot of fun meeting new people and trying out new things. I […]

As a Thai citizen that one lived in Thailand for 3 years, this is the first time I visited Maekok. To be honest I don’t even what Maekok was at first or in other words, never heard of it. I never expect the place to teach the way I look at people because of how […]

This trip was another memorable one for me. Going there, I did not expect to gain a lot other than experiences relating to community service. Though what I gained was a lot more than that.

This year’s GCW, I went to Chiang Mai, which is in the Northern part of Thailand. There were 20 students and two teachers on the trip. On Saturday, we flew from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, as Chiang Rai’s airport is closer to the place we’d be staying at. We then travelled by van to Maekok, […]
