4 NUIC Students Qualify to the Prestigious OR Seeding the Future ASEAN Camp 2019 Big congratulations to the four NUIC students who qualified to the PTTOR Seeding the Future Camp 2019! Out of hundreds of applicants from five ASEAN countries (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and the Philippines), four (4) NUIC students were among the best ambassadors selected in one of the most prestigious camps in the country. PTTOR believes in the potential of ASEAN youth, hence they organized the program in order to shape a sustainable future. The idea of the camp is that they are selecting the best “seeds” (ambassadors from different ASEAN universities) who will eventually become “trees” in the future. The four talented and lucky NUIC ambassadors are: Miss Phoungeune Sounthala, Miss Ingyin Hmwe, Mr. Pitiwat and Miss Thanaporn Boonwutiwiwat. The camp will be on November 3 – 9, 2019 which will be held in Bangkok. On this firth year, the theme of the camp is “Digital Aspiration.” The OR Camp has been going for 5 years and NUIC students have been selected for five years in a row. We’re wishing our students and all the ambassadors the best of luck. To our NUIC students, we’re very proud of you!
