Hi everyone! My name is Perpetua Sermsup Smith. I am a professional international model, and I have had amazing opportunities to work in various countries like the United States, France, Thailand and the United Kingdom. I received a Bachelors of Science in Marketing with a Minor in International Studies, a concentration in Digital Marketing and Marketing Communications, and a concentration in Sports and Service Marketing from Siena College in 2019. In 2020 I received a Masters in Business Administration from Liberty University. In July of 2021, I received a Creative Director Certificate from IFA Paris. Most recently, I became TELF Certified from the TEFL institute of Ireland in order to be qualified to teach English abroad. Currently, I am working as a pharmacy technician while studying to take the GMAT in hopes of potentially applying to the Marking Ph.D. Program at Harvard University. Last, but certainly not least, my main focus in life is working, studying, and preparing to compete for Miss Universe Thailand 2022.
My Hopes & Dreams
Throughout my life, I have always tried to have a plan for my plans. I try to set short term goals that will open up numerous possibilities to various long term goals. Over the next seven years, I want to obtain my Ph.D in Marketing from Harvard Business School, teach college level classes abroad, help underprivileged children, and compete and win Miss Universe Thailand. On the surface, these all seem hard to obtain, but I have smaller goals that I am working towards that will help me complete every single one of my dreams.
I am currently studying for my GMAT, and I am focused on scoring in the top 1% in order to confidently apply to the Ph.D. program.
I have received both an extensive Bachelor's Degree, and a Masters Degree which increases my qualifications to teach higher education. I am currently working on perfecting my resume and CV letter to submit for potential employment in universities abroad.
I want to also teach underprivileged children the English language in Thailand. Therefore, I have obtained a TEFL Certificate from The TEFL Institute of Ireland to qualify me for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I was also able to obtain two concentrations under this certificate including Advanced Grammar and Online teaching.
Lastly, I want to compete and win Miss Universe Thailand. I am working hard and saving money to make this dream become a reality. I am planning on moving to Thailand in the beginning of 2022 to solidify my dream. I am building my social media and website to help connect me to a larger support system. I am continuing my studies into Thai history, politics, religion, culture and language to better connect me to the community.
These hopes and dreams are real for me, and I will make them a reality!
I have been blessed with the opportunities to work with countless different people around the world, and I have enjoyed every moment of it.
Education has made a tremendous impact on my life. I have been able to create stability while building both a positive external and internal support system. Continuous learning has helped me with personal growth and self-realization. I have been able to obtain opportunities that help me create the future I want for myself and those around me.
Lastly, modeling has helped me discover who I am, and how I want to live. I have learned valuable life skills throughout these years of modeling. I know how to present myself in a professional way while still being able to be very personable. I am more confident in my own skin. I believe in myself and I know I can make a positive impact on those around me.
I have found happiness through my passions and true self-realization. I want to be a positive role model for all the young people all over the world and I want everyone to know that they can do anything they put their minds to no matter the obstacles.
