From Mae Rim to London

A Prem student success story

Jon Hartmann
The entire school community at Prem Tinsulanonda International School is justifiably proud of the achievements of Emon Pattaramongkolkarn (Emmy) who graduated in June. Emmy has not only gained entry to the prestigious London School of Economics, she has won the Boonma Wongswan Scholarship worth 20,000 pounds in her first year.

M.L. Tridhosyuth Devakul (Chairman of Board) congratulates Emmy on Graduation Day 2007.

London School of Economics (LSE) is rated by most observers as one of the top schools in the world. The 2007 Times Good University Guide rated it number 1 in the UK for Economics while most surveys has it in the top 4 schools of economics in the world. It is easy to see why! LSE has produced 14 Nobel Prize winners and 35 Heads of State. There are 5 current Heads of State who are graduates of LSE. By attending LSE, Emmy will get one of the finest educations and finest preparations possible in the world today.
Equally thrilling for Emmy and her family is the winning of the highly competitive scholarship which covers both fees and living expenses for her first year. Needless to say, to go to such a great University for free is every academic student’s dream and Emmy has fulfilled this dream. Many readers will want to know how she achieved this and is there any secret formula for her success? As her Counselor, I rate four things very highly in her success.
Emmy is a very talented, dedicated and hard working girl with ambition and motivation to succeed. Her qualities are outstanding and she has the support of her family.
Emmy, who is a Thai national, won a scholarship to attend Prem Tinsulanonda International School and be immersed in the English language. At Prem, Emmy did the International Baccalaureate Diploma which has the highest recognition and reputation as a University entrance accreditation. Finally as Emmy herself has acknowledged, Emmy was taught and supported by a highly professional and well qualified staff in every subject area. These are the four ingredients of her success and explain how a Thai girl can go from a school in Northern Thailand on a scholarship to the most prestigious economics school in the world.
