My name is Napachol Parichattkul and I’m from Bangkok, Thailand. I’m currently at Taylor’s College, pursuing the foundation program. The subjects I’m undertaking include maths, English, computing, and marketing. I hope to go on and undertake the Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in Management and Marketing, at UWA. I like Taylor’s because I’m provided with phenomenal academic support and get to study alongside other friendly students representing a variety of unique cultural backgrounds.

At Taylor’s College, I'm a member of the student council. We think of activities each semester for the new students to take part in. I'm looking forward to leaving a positive impact at Taylor’s College and while I'm there, I aim to engage in more discussions with other students to facilitate a stronger sense of community.

I love sports, as I play golf, enjoy Latin dancing and even train in Muay Thai, which is a form of traditional Thai kickboxing. I also like to write poetry and play the drums.

I live in Lower Whitfield, which is a wing I love living in because of its close proximity to the dining hall. The best thing about St Cat's so far has been making new friends from so many different countries. I have friends from USA, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and many more vibrant countries.

I love Bangkok because of its paradoxical beauty. We have beautiful traditional temples right next to modern shopping malls. It’s a unique mix of modern and traditional and I’m excited to go back over the June holidays to see my family and share my incredible stories about Perth with them.
