My name is Pitchabhon or you can call me Pang. I live between the North and the center of Thailand.
I come from a family of five people that consists of father, mother, younger sister, younger brother and me. My father has business owner. He is family man. He always looks after me and support everything. He likes cycling and he enjoys cooking and baking. He always cooks my favorite food. My mother works with my father. She is a working woman. Although she has lots of work to do, she always takes care of me very well. She always gives me a chance and new experiences. My younger brother is kind and friendly. Well, my younger sister is happy girl and she likes to help other people. She enjoys eating. Sometimes when she doesn’t obey what my mother tells her to do, my mother will tell me to talk to her and finally she will follow.
I attend a boarding school for girls. I have been studying here since I was in grade 7. In this school we have to do everything by themselves. We must to stay in dormitory from Monday to Friday. We can go home on Fridays afternoon and we come back to school on Monday morning. The most favorite activity is drama. Everyone has to participate in drama performance. I’m in speech and debate club. We join the club once a week and every time we will pick a topic then divide us into two teams for talking about advantage and disadvantage about that topic. After that we will do a speech in the auditorium room. When I was in grade 7 and grade 8 I played flute in orchestra band.
My hobby is photography, I have been interested in photography since I was 10 years old. I like to go outside and taking landscape pictures. Because when we are taking pictures outside even though it is the same place, you will get different pictures with different feeling and new experience. Taking a picture is easiest way to keep our good memories. Sometimes I like to spend my free time to read books. I like to read magazines such as tragedy stories, drama stories, and historical novels. I think reading a book can open my new world and vision. I feel like I’m in the new world.
I have been to America twice. First I went to Los Angeles, California to study and travel for 3 weeks at FLS Citrus College. I lived with my roommate at host family house that have 9 people in their family. There is double placement who live next to my bedroom. Second time I went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to take a short language course for 2 months at FLS Chestnut Hill College. I lived with host mom who is 68 years old. I got a lot of foreigner friends. They come from Colombia, Peru, Saudi Arabia and Korea. After 2 months I improved a lot of English skills because I have been forced to use English all time although I talk with my friends.
I want to be an exchange student because I want to have new experiences, new culture and improve my English and vision. I think if I am an exchange student in America I will have opportunity to learn my third language.
I want to study in Faculty of Business Administration and Faculty of Food and Hospitality because my house has bakery ingredients shop, and I will be a shop owner in the future, so I want to study in those faculty to get more knowledge and improve our shop.
I would like to thank you for reading my letter and choosing me. I can’t wait to be an exchange student there. I’m excited to see my host family.
