Wissarut Samutpanich

        Anina Van Der Walt
Hi.  I'm Wissarut.  I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, until I moved to New Zealand in 2010.  I am currently studying in Year 12 and this year is my 5th and last year at Bethlehem College.
Being here for numerous years has taught me many things about who I am, and also the community, which is an advantage I have that will help me with my role.  I don't consider myself as a leader that veryone has to listen to and take comman from.  Rather, I consider myself as a friend who international students can always come and talk to, with anything on their mind.
I am looking forward to 2014, as I assure you that it will be an unforgettable year for every single one of us.
Hi, my name is Anina and I am an International Captain for 2014.  Don't worry if you can't pronounce my name, most people can't!   I am currently a Year 13 student and next year I will be attending Uni here in New Zealand.
As I have moved around a lot and attended many schools as a result (7 to be exact), I understand exactly what it is like entering an unfamiliar school, culture and country.  This enables me to offer assistance to new students coming to NZ and Bethlehem College for the first time.
Any international student, feel free to come talk to me if you need help with anything at all, feel homesick, or simply need a friend.  Don't worry, I don't bite :)
