It’s April!! I am finally completely settled in Thailand, and I have been working hard to make sure I get everything accomplished before the competition. I take walking and acting classes every weekend to help me improve my stage performance and presence. I’ve had the pleasure of attending various events to help me network and meet amazing creatives, influencers, and production teams. Additionally, I have been working with various companies to create social media content for both myself and the brands. There have been so many people reaching out for collaborations, I am so happily overwhelmed. I will make sure I get back to everyone who reaches out.
I officially have all my Thai documents needed to live harmoniously in Thailand. I have my birth certificate, my passport, and most importantly my Thai ID. I have an amazing family that has been taking care of me. They are making sure I stay happy, healthy, safe, and comfortable during this brand new adventure. I have loved being able to reconnect with my family and friends here in Thailand. It has been amazing adapting the culture into my everyday life.
Now onto my plans for the next few months:
After some mild research, I have come to the conclusion that I must maintain a strict learning schedule in order to become fluent in the Thai Language. The Thai language is categorized as a level 3 (out of 5) language. This means that Thai is one of the more difficult languages to learn. For a level 3 language it takes about 720 hours to reach fluency, which is between 48 to 72 days (2 to 3 months) if one is able to study 10 hours a day. This will be difficult for me to accomplish, but I can definitely do it! I have made myself a schedule that I must follow in order to accomplish my goals.
