My name is Purich Viwatkurkul, I'm Thai, 17, and currently a senior in Highschool. My favorite hobbies are playing videos games, airsoft, building computers, watching anime, and playing track and soccer.

What I Stand For  

Volunteer Experience

Sep 2014 - Present
Camp Wat Pa is a yearly camp where counselors and young Thai campers from all over L.A unify together to enjoy a weekend together. We learn about our cultures and we bond with other Thai-Americans where we usually wouldn't. We learn how to work together as a team and express ourselves in a positive and inspiring way. I was privileged to become a counselor and help inspire other young Thai-Americans just like me. As a counselor, I help make the activities and plans run smoothly and facilitate over the young children.
