Q2 . What is your work benefit from working with UNDP Thailand? 
UNDP offers fair working hours. This helps me plan my off days easier and I get to spend more time with my family. Most importantly, UNDP provides a better “work-life balance" with good healthcare benefits that cover to partners and family members as well. 
Additionally, I also have received the opportunity to learn additional languages supported by the office.

Q3. What is the most memorable moment during your working with UNDP Thailand? 
I am impressed with “everything” since the first day I joined. Everyone gave me a very warm welcome. And, my colleagues have always been supportive and provided me with good advice that allow me to adjust myself to the new environment fast. 
The most memorable experience was when I had the opportunity to work for Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator during his visit to Thailand in 2022. I feel honored to be a part of this experience and he was very casual and friendly with me. 
I am proud to say that I am working for UNDP. Whenever I spot UNDP logo in public places, I feel proud to be a part of this family that creates a positive impact for a better society in Thailand.
