YPAB 2021 members
October 2021 - September 2022
UNICEF Thailand appointed the Young People Advisory Board (YPAB) in October 2021. The YPAB acts as a critical sounding board for UNICEF Thailand, informing the planning, implementation and monitoring of UNICEF’s priority initiatives, and ensuring that the voices of young people are heard by UNICEF and its partners, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized. The 2021 UNICEF YPAB comprises 62 young people between the ages of 10-23 who come from diverse backgrounds and with different interests and areas of expertise. Each has travelled their own path and lived their own unique story.
My name is Oo. I am currently a stateless student at the Faculty of Social Administration, Thammasat University. My personal interests include the issue of access to education for stateless and ethnic children and young people. I have engaged in volunteer work with multiple organizations, trying to understand the complexity and sensitivity of issues related to stateless children, particularly their access to rights and social welfare, which is often more limited than for others. As a voice for young people, I want to develop myself and take part in efforts to advance and promote changes for a better future, especially promoting education to be the foundation for uplifting the quality of life for young people.
Siribut Musikapodok, and my nickname is Name. I am visually impaired and a student at the Faculty of Education, Chiang Mai University, majoring in Special Education. What inspired me to join YPAB is that I want to be one of the guiding lights that could show the way to people in despair. No one can choose where or how they were born, but they can strive for a better life. I chose to take part in YPAB because I can now live a better life with the help of UNICEF, and I want to set a good example for others.
Earn, aged 22, and just graduated from the Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University, in politics and international affairs. What inspired me to join YPAB is my exposure to problems which have long been faced by children and young people, including limited access to critical and necessary resources and a lack of support and services in education and employability. These problems have been affecting children and young people in the long term. Being a member of YPAB enables me to speak out on these issues, which will help relevant organizations work together more efficiently in the best interest of children and young people.
Nattanicha, aged 17, a school activist who has a dream to make schools a safe place driven by empathy and freedom of expression for all children. I initiated a project “SKN Student Reflect” as a platform for students, teachers and parents to exchange views on different problems. Currently, I am an exchange student and a volunteer in Spain under the AFS intercultural programme, involved in a project with other international students to engage young people in public parks in Madrid. I am taking part in YPAB as I want to exchange views and ideas with other youth leaders and UNICEF staff in creating activities that are fun, varied and more efficient in engaging with and making a sustainable impact for children and young people.
Hi. My name is Nara Weschayanwiwat or Nano, aged 16. I am studying in 11th grade. As a youth, I want to reach my potential and use my enthusiasm and energy in making changes for a better society. I believe that young people are a great force for good. Education is the most important thing that every child should receive. It enables them to earn a living, have a better life and attain security in life. I recognize several problems related to education and think that all children should have more equal access to good education. Therefore, I would like to represent children and help everyone enjoy their education.
Praewa, aged 22, currently an undergraduate student in biotechnology at Chiang Mai University. I am one of the youth leaders in the Global Youth Biodiversity Network, working with groups of young people on issues related to biodiversity. I have been involved in an environmental project on wildfire prevention in my local area and took part in organizing a hackathon “Bio-Div Hack” to innovate development models based on bio-wisdom. My inspiration to join YPAB is the desire to be a young voice for the environment in Thailand and speak out on environmental issues, helping to protect the environment and biodiversity from being destroyed by the climate change.
My name is Anchisa Kumpu, aged 22. I am a 4th year student at the Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University. Violence against children and young people is an important problem affecting the society at large. Solving the problem requires sensitivity and an understanding of key issues. Therefore, I am honoured to join YPAB and UNICEF in solving this problem together with other children and young people.
Ranchida Rojanakit (Bell), an 11th grade student at Khon Kaen Wittayayon School, serving as the vice president of the school’s student body. I collaborated with an environmental conservation group in a project on waste management and was one of the five youths who represented Thailand in the Southeast Asia Youth Leadership Program 2021 organized by the US State Department. I am committed to learning and developing myself as well as campaigning to raise environmental awareness among children and young people, especially on the worsening waste problem. I believe that cultivating awareness in children and young people on waste separation at homes, schools and communities can help ease the problem, but my voice alone would be heard by very few people. Therefore, I am confident that my participation in YPAB, which is an initiative to elevate to the voices of children and young people, will make our little voices louder and engage more people in developing a livable and sustainable society.
Sawasdee krub. My name is Sung or Pakon Saeyang, aged 18. I am studying in 12th grade at Pamai Uthit 4 School. Recognizing many unresolved problems in education, environment and inequality has inspired me to take part in YPAB. I would like people and organizations to be more aware of these problems so that they can be resolved at the root cause. That is the reason that led me to join YPAB.
Hi. My name is Tomoko Ikuta, aged 14. I am Thai-Japanese. I am studying in 9th grade at International School Bangkok, serving as a member of the school’s student council and its student ambassador. I am also the admin of an Instagram page @fight.climatechnge that disseminates useful information to raise awareness on climate change. I am inspired to join YPAB as I want to represent children in Thailand, especially the most marginalized, in reflecting their ideas, needs, suggestions and problems in the development of policies together with UNICEF, whether at the local, national, regional or global level. Having learned that UNICEF will be focusing more on the environment and climate change this year makes me even more determined to participate, as climate change will be directly affecting all children in the 21st century.
Hi. My name is Prem, aged 22. I am a 3rd year student at the School of Law, Assumption University and one of the leaders of the Little Birds Youth Network Foundation. My inspiration to join YPAB comes from my desire for change and improvement in our society. I believe that all of us can be a driving force for the future of our country, regardless of how big or small we are. All great changes always begin with the first little step. Therefore, I always have hope that I can contribute to the advancement of our society and country.
I am a high school student at Wangkham Wittayakom School and a member of the executive committee of the Children and Youth Council of Khlong District, Kamphaengphet Province. Photography is my hobby. I am ready to take part in this children and youth network and perform my duty to the best of my ability. I am also ready to work on the ground to protect and address problems faced by children and young people to bring smiles and happiness to them.
Hi. My name is Nontakorn, aged 19. I am a student at Chulalongkorn School of Integrated Innovation. Activities, internships and my time at the university made me realize that we have social problems which need to be addressed, especially problems that are directly affecting children and young people who have no other choice but to bear the burden. I have trust in the power of youth, who are full of energy and curiosity. I started to ask myself questions about new possibilities and decided to take part in YPAB with the expectation to make use of my knowledge and experience for a good cause and to learn from everyone in order to empower myself. “Youth are the country’s future. There is no future if we do not support them.”
My name is Pariyakorn Suwan, aged 17. I am an activist and a speaker on child rights. I currently work as a volunteer for the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and am a member of the Youth Club Samut Prakan. The reason I chose to become a member of YPAB is that I believe that everyone is equal but there are still many children and young people whose fundamental rights are being taken away from them. As fellow human beings, we need to do something to return these rights and dignity to every child, for them to be able to live equally and happily in this cruel world. I think that if we come together, we can definitely create a space of diversity and equality for everyone.
My name is Mej Chandrasup, aged 16. I am a high school student at Suankularb Wittayalai School. I like to challenge myself and take pride when young people can make a social impact. I have always been active in school activities and was involved in social and cultural projects, organizing exhibitions and providing opportunities for youth to express themselves. It makes me believe in the ability of young people who have yet to be listened to, despite the fact that everyone has a role to play regardless of their age, gender or social status. The world is changing fast. Problems continually arise. Our interests may differ. I myself am interested in environmental, LGBTQ+ and youth issues. But we all have to be prepared for whatever may come. I have trust in everyone and hope that everyone can have trust in each other.
Anuwat Hehmad, aged 17, a youth leader and a member of the Children and Youth Council of Satun Province. My interests focus on promoting, supporting and empowering children and young people to take on roles and express themselves. I wanted to join YPAB as I seek to promote child rights and bring equality and equity to all children and young people in Thailand.
Hello. I am Worrawantra Nuam-In, aged 17. My nickname is Aomamm or you can simply call me Amm. I am studying in 11th grade in a French language programme. I joined YPAB as I would like to be part of a group of voices raising awareness on young people’s problems.
My name is Voraruthai Puengchanchaikul, or Belle. I am currently 15 years old and studying in 10th grade at Ruamrudee International School. I enjoy playing volleyball and basketball, reading and watching figure skating. I am inspired to be part of YPAB because I believe that the younger generation has a lot to offer to the world. Our childhood and our youth are what shape who we are in the future, making it a critical time in a person’s life. To create a better future, we must protect and empower children and young adults because they are the leaders of tomorrow’s society. Personally, I am most passionate about ensuring good health and well-being, a fundamental human right, whether that is in terms of physical or mental health. There are many communities around the world still lacking access to resources that are necessary for good health and well-being, and there are many health issues that are oftentimes neglected in today’s society. I am excited and humbled to be working alongside all the dedicated, passionate and kind individuals at YPAB, and I have no doubt that together, we can bring positive change to the world.
Watwaree, aged 20, studying at the Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University, majoring in international affairs.
I think there remain many problems in the society and they will continue to exist if we do not work together to address them. I believe that we can start with ourselves to help ease the problems and gradually improve the society. I want to live in a better future and look back at the changes and successes that we make today.
YPAB will be a good platform for youth like us to help other people. I believe that the people who can best address our problems are those who are directly affected. It is young people who will be the major force that puts our society on a livable and sustainable path. I would like all the valuable voices of children and young people to be ring louder.
My nickname is Affan, and I am 21 years old. I am a student at Srinakharinwirot University majoring in international affairs. I am currently involved in a project called “Transformative Education” under the Global Youth Biodiversity Network. My personal interests include the political aspect of environmental sustainability, Islamic civilization, strategic issues related to railways and urban development, sustainable urban development and issues related to conflicts and violence both domestically and abroad. YPAB is a platform to listen to all young people no matter who they are, given that every single voice is important and will be part of the problem solving. I am interested in joining YPAB as I want to learn about young people’s views, especially on environmental issues. It is critically important that young people should recognize and act on the current situation that has seen increasingly devastating disasters. Young people should not sit idly by but make it part of an urgent agenda that needs everyone’s action.
Hello. I am Chanita Iamviriyaphong, aged 16. I am an 11th grade student at Mater Dei School. I am very glad to be a part of YPAB, focusing on environment and climate change. My inspiration is drawn from having seen news about the deteriorating environment and animals being adversely affected by environmental degradation and climate change. I realized that a major part of the problem is human beings, and our behaviour has seriously affected nature and living creatures. Today’s environmental problems are increasingly critical. Therefore, as a youth and user of the world’s resources, I feel obliged to take part in solving and mitigating the problems as well as raising awareness on the urgency of the problems which require collective action.
My name is Nitiphoom Satitchon, aged 18, a 1st year student at the Faculty of Education, Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University. I joined YPAB as I wanted to help end violence against children and young people, especially for the LGBTQ+ community which often faces bullying at schools. What I would like to do most is change the social habit of always judging a person by their gender or sexual orientation. I would like the public to see LGBTQ+ people as equal human beings. Our voices are louder today. Being a part of YPAB, I would like to represent all children and young people in voicing their concerns so that relevant agencies and the general public can be better aware of their problems and take meaningful actions to address them to create a better future for children and young people in Thailand.
My name is Suthinee Rakkusol. I am a 2nd year student at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Chiang Mai University, majoring in geography. I believe that all children and young people have the right to live in an environment which is conducive to reaching their full potential. The social and natural environment is critical to the growth and development of not only today’s children but also those in the future. They are entitled to equal access to resources, not a degrading environment. They have the right to breathe clean air, not the pollution left behind by previous generations. They have the right to a sustainable life. I am inspired to join YPAB as I would like to join hands with other people in advocating for sustainable development for children and young people in the future.
My name is Muhammadharis Jiman or you can call me Haris. I grow up in a multicultural society in the southern border provinces of Thailand. I have a passion for social work. I was an exchange student under the US government’s KLYES-AFS programme, which motivated me to be committed to making changes for a better society. Today, I have been involved in creating a social innovation, “BIE Card Game,” which is a card game aiming to create safe spaces for youth in the southern border provinces to exchange their views on their shared problems and social issues. In joining YPAB, I am determined to advocate for the participation of young people in exchanging their views on conflicts and differences in order to move the whole society forward together.
I am a high school student at Patumwan Demonstration School. I have co-founded and participated in volunteer projects and social activities in multiple areas. As a member of YPAB on education and employability, I recognize the challenges facing today’s public education. As the foundation for social and future development, our education system needs to be improved to ensure employability and skills development for children and young people. I would like to contribute to advocating and raising awareness on these issues. I want to be a part in making positive changes in the education system to ensure that our young people are prepared for the future.

I also provide consultations to students when they face incidents of threats at schools.

Being a member of YPAB will open up an additional channel for me to contribute to driving the country forward.

I am currently the president of the youth volunteers of the Red Cross Samut Prakan Chapter. I am especially interested in waste management and waste problems in Chao Phraya River, as my community is on the river bank and I can always see rubbish floating by. My friends and I created an innovative project on waste management, which won the first prize in the youth category of a competition organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross. I made a presentation in an international seminar, conducted a classroom lesson on the topic “The Power of 3Rs” and organized a workshop to educate students on waste management.

As a friend and supporter of UNICEF, I am determined to support and promote the continued development of education, especially the empowerment of children and young people to become global citizens.
Minnie, aged 20, is a 3rd year medical student at Ramathibodi Hospital. Today’s society might seem scary to children and young people. They might be afraid of not having access to quality education, being bullied, being suppressed or even afraid of being themselves. I am determined to create a society in which young people feel safe and empowered to make changes in this world.
Wongsapat Bandalsakulrat or Boom, aged 17, is living in Kamphaengphet Province and studying at Kamphaengphet Pittayakom School. He is a member of the Children and Youth Council of Kamphaengphet Province. He is interested to join YPAB as he would like to help young people keep up with the globalized world as well as with its diversity, including ethnicity, race, gender and age.

Hi. My name is Nipitphon Tungkarak, aged 17. I am studying in 11th grade at Patumwan Demonstration School. I have a twin brother who has a disability. Frequent visits to hospitals were a big part of my life, and it was difficult for him. But as I have grown up, it made me realize that there are still many children and young people who do not even have the opportunity for or access to health care and education. There is a teacher who told me that “children everywhere in Thailand are all Thai children in a sense.” I totally agreed with the teacher. Regardless of where they are born, either on the remote hills or in cities, every child should have the opportunity to grow and reach their fullest potential.
My name is Tassorn. I am a 12th grade student at Satree Phuket School. During 2019-2020, I was an AFS exchange student in Germany which enabled me to absorb their educational values and environmental awareness. Moreover, in 2021, I was part of a team that developed a first-prize winning educational policy “Vocational New Gen.” My personal interests and priorities include the environment and education. I like to read or relax in a quiet café listening to music or travelling with family, especially to the beach. As a member of YPAB, I hope to encourage more participation and a better understanding among children and young people on environmental issues. I also want to contribute to helping the most vulnerable groups get better access to resources to improve their quality of their life.
Hi. I am Ping Ping, aged 19. I am studying at the Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University. I identify as LGBT and, in the future, as transgender. The issue of climate change inspired me to join YPAB. I believe that the extensive network of UNICEF will be helpful in building on what I have learned. The future of children and young people like us is being taken away by our ignorance today. The challenge facing us can be seen clearly from the recent multiple crises, which are increasingly devastating. I would like everyone to be aware of this problem and the lives of the future generations. We are not alone on this planet but live in an interdependent ecosystem. If one thing is destroyed, imbalance and scarcity will follow, and everything could come to an end. I want to amplify young people’s voices and be an example in making environment conservation a part of daily life to sustain this world for young people and new generations.
My name is Apinya Bowari, aged 19. I am studying at the Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University. I am currently working to advance my goals to ensure that young people have equal access to education and safe spaces to express themselves. Recognizing that the available spaces for young people to voice their opinions either at the school or community level is currently not conducive to children’s participation, I have joined YPAB to ensure that no one is excluded from these spaces and more safe spaces are created for young people to collectively address their own problems through policy recommendations or social campaigns in a sustainable manner.

I have been a volunteer for more than two years, working on the ground and learning about problems and obstacles faced by youth and government agencies. Being in YPAB is another way to serve my country. It is a platform where children and young people can exchange views to solve their own problems at the root causes and in the most effective manner.
I am Waramas or Book, a new graduate of the Faculty of Social Administration in child, youth and family development. I am now a volunteer providing support for COVID-19 patients on the Homecare by Agnos platform. I was inspired to join YPAB after learning about the problems faced by children and young people throughout my time at university. I also had the opportunity to work with children and young people in vulnerable situations, either in residential care centres or in schools, which made me want to contribute to protecting them and addressing their problems. As a volunteer during the spread of COVID-19, I have encountered even more children and young people in vulnerable situations. Taking part in YPAB is, therefore, an opportunity to make use of my knowledge and experience in contributing to the work of UNICEF and the promotion of equal access to social welfare systems for all children and young people in Thailand.
Hi. My name is Patcharanan Jirachaiprasitti or Iris. I am 11 years old. I am very glad to be selected as a member of YPAB 2021. I have always wanted to take part in activities with a respected global organization like UNICEF.

I’m now ready to take this responsibility to the best of my ability. Thank you to UNICEF.
My name is Ploykarn Vichitjirakul. I am a 3rd year medical student at Ramathibodi Hospital. As part of YPAB, I strive to be the voice of children in Thailand when addressing problems faced by them. I believe every child should be heard and all deserve to receive care and protection. I have volunteered in multiple child-related fields such as being a teacher assistant in an autism-focused school, organizing projects on children’s education and raising funds for children with muscular dystrophy, among others. Through my volunteer experiences and medical knowledge, I am determined to maximize UNICEF's potential in helping and reaching out to children in need in Thailand.
My name is Saharat or you can call me Oil. I am 23 years old and currently a 5th year medical student at Phramongkutklao College of Medicine. I am taking part in YPAB because I once witnessed health problems in an orphanage. I want to promote health equity particularly for the most vulnerable groups, including marginalized children who are often neglected. I believe in a holistic approach to health promotion and better access for all through technologies. I am also committed to engaging in educational activities that inspire hopes and dreams among those children.
Emma, aged 17. I believe that all children, either in remote villages or in busy urban areas, deserve good physical and mental health. Everyone has a role to play in making the world a better place for children to live and grow. Their smiles have kept me motivated in becoming a part of YPAB.
My name is Sasipapha, and I'm 17 years old. I have encountered the issues of poverty and lack of access to education when I was a volunteer teacher. I discovered the level of inequality among my students. Many of them had financial issues and not all their parents had enough money to send them to tutorial schools. I have always believed that everyone is equal and should have the same opportunity to study whether their parents are rich or poor or whether they live in cities or rural areas. It made me realize how important it is that welfare systems are properly managed.
I am currently studying an undergraduate degree in education. My experience in working with other people has made me realize that there are always two sides of the same coin. I give credit for all my achievements and who I am today to the fact that I have been given opportunities and my voice has been listened to. “Come see us again” were the words from students in a remote school I visited in a volunteer programme, which reminded me to always seek opportunities to make their lives better. I believe that sustainable improvement in the quality of and access to education for all children is critical to the country’s economic and social development, and equal access to education is a fundamental right that every child deserves.
I am studying at Patumwan Demonstration School. I believe that education is the first step to uplifting the quality of life for children. It provides an opportunity for them to learn about the world and their own potential as well as life skills they will need when they grow up. Therefore, every child should have equal access to education. I joined YPAB as I would like to take part in advocating for social issues, particularly in uplifting the quality of life of children through education.
My name is Thanachat Laowang or Ice, aged 17. I was born on 29 December, 2003 and grew up in Chiang Mai. I am inspired to join YPAB by my desire to become a voice for young people.
My name is Black. I am a 4th year student at Chiang Mai University. I always wanted to help marginalized children and children with disabilities to have equal opportunities in education.

Seeing widespread social problems such as violence and inequalities motivated me to join YPAB. I am also inspired by UNICEF’s campaign “Love Myself” with BTS which advocates to end violence against children and promote equality and young people’s self-love and self-respect. It made me realize that there are still many people who need help. and everyone can do their share to promote equality and peaceful co-existence regardless of ethnicity or political views. BTS is my role model for philanthropy.
My name is Chawannuch, aged 14. I am an 8th grade student at Rajinibon School. I am inspired by my father who is on the Thailand Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which works to protect children who are threatened or abused on the internet. I heard different stories from him which made me interested in helping the affected children gain better access to the necessary services and support.
My name is Kampanart or K.J., aged 21. I am a 4th year student at the Faculty of Humanities and Applied Arts, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. I joined YPAB because I believe that young people are our future leaders. Therefore, we need qualified youth for our interdependent future and should develop, strengthen, advise and guide them into the right direction as early as possible. I believe that helping others, especially vulnerable groups, is not only about attending events, but also voicing their concerns. I trust that UNICEF values the voices of young people, including mine, as no one can understand young people better than themselves.
I am an 11th grade student at Saint Joseph Bangna School. I joined YPAB as I want to help children achieve their full potential, get what they deserve, grow up in a good environment and live a happy childhood.
My name is Nina, aged 16. I am studying in 12th grade. Having been raised in a family of physicians has exposed me to people with different challenges and helped me believe that I too can help other people. This inspired me to join YPAB to take part in solving current problems and making positive changes in our society!
