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.

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
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.
