I am Pradichaya. A Thai born in Bangkok, I grew up in the United States. Starting out in Thailand but making the US my home, later, I returned to Thailand and, even more later, relocated to the US. Throughout my life I have one foot in Thailand and another foot in America. I absorb the American culture without losing the Thai's. I have the benefit of combining the east and the west, and making the best of both worlds.


When a person is living in both worlds, her thoughts and ideas, her communication, her action, and everything about her are evidence of that. In my case, east-meets-west scenario reflects in the way I'm raising my family, my voice teaching approach, and my cooking skills. It shows up in day-to-day tasks and routines, and, even shows when I agree or disagree with someone.


Is my representation of a Thai living the American way; an American modern mix with a touch of delicateness of the old Thai.
