Social entrepreneur for folk wisdom and craft

Co-founder of "FlowFolk Company Limited" (FlowFolk Co., Ltd.) that gathers a group of people who share the same beliefs/ideas. We believe that if folk wisdom and local craftsmanship have been revitalised through the ages, they are able to strengthen and create the livable and sustainable local communities. The concept of research and development is applied in our organisation’s operation and this had been inspired during my study in the Master of Science Program in Food and Nutrition for Development (International Program), now become the Master of Science Program in Food Science for Nutrition (International Program), at the Institute of Nutrition. This course aimed to allow student to understand an importance of nutrition in a whole food supply chain from a product design to the assessments of quality, efficiency and safety. The course, also, encouraged student to develop the analytical thinking processes, the research designs that focus on solving problems and delivering benefits to consumers, and the awareness of implementation feasibility. I had an opportunity to be part of the “Innovative food product for oral cancer patients” project. Working with the experts from different fields allowed me to understand a value of their dedication for the benefit of others and the great impact of their contribution that could promote the quality of life of others. Therefore, I would like to continue being in the pathway that can create a positive impact to society. In addition, I was one of the "Happy Field Happy Farm" team that won the award of "Banpu Champions for Change 5" project. And, after years in R&D career, I decided to study in “European Master in Food Studies” program at Wageningen University. Through my experience, it underpins that a contribution based on a consideration of others’ benefit/public interests in the areas of environment, economy and society can lead to sustainability in society.
