Why I chose Fletcher: The people are what I love most about Fletcher. From my cultural background, I didn't expect to learn from my classmates at all. However, what I have found at Fletcher is that my classmates are knowledgeable and unique in their own ways, and from those qualities, they make each day at Fletcher exciting and an eye-opening experience. My classmates are as smart as they are fun to live and learn with! What has surprised me about Fletcher is that students here know how to be focused academically and how to enjoy their lives outside of school at the same time.

How I first learned about Fletcher: I first learned about Fletcher when I was working with a wonderful alumnus at the Foreign Ministry in Thailand. The Fletcher alumni are a great example of how a professional school can help mold passionate, hard-workers into a group of people who make a difference in this world. By choosing The Fletcher School, I hope that I will be able to inspire more Thai students to attend in the future, and I hope to have a privilege to enjoy this memorable experience through their stories.
