A Thai native, Net started off her career working in Singapore in the big old boys’ club: advertising. Don’t get her wrong, she loved her job. She just didn’t love marketing things that didn’t mean anything to her.
After founding the CSR initiative for her company, she quickly realized there was a soft spot where passion can actually meet profession. So she decided to switch gears. Fast.
She is now based in London and currently pursuing a MSc in Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship at LSE.
Net completed her Bachelor’s degree from NYU where she was part of the Feminist Club. In Singapore, Net was also part of AWARE, Singapore’s leading gender equality advocacy group.
