Destined to be the only female in male-donimant groups

Looking back at the achievements I have made and the current situation I am in, I have always been destined to be the only female in groups.

I clearly remember a time in 2002 while I was standing in line to get my certificate for the national outstanding students in SR. I was the only girl among the 10 champions.

Back to my teaching experience at IFL, I was the only female teacher in the TM group, and I did well with the awards of the best TM teacher four times consecutively.

What about now? The only female in the ACE senior management team.

Feeling-good Morning

What a good morning! Worked out for 15 minutes, prepared Tata for school, had a breakfast at home, and drank a cup of milk before coming to work.

It's gonna be a productive day!

Wake up and be realistic

Thida, grow up! You can't simply do only what you like in real life. There are a lot of people out there who are doing or have done what they loath because this is a pathway to professional growth or personal success. A lot of successful people have experienced this and have passed it or else they wouldn't be where they are now.

Happiness is indeed a choice, but you need to know how to choose the wise happiness. Want to stay in your comfort zone only??? How long? Don't you want to grow professionally? Don't you want to make big impacts with people around you including your family members and staff? Don't you want to be a role model for women? Slap your face and wake up!!!!

Why did your parents send you to the states and spend lots of money on your study? Just to see you becoming a regular teacher? NOOOOO. They want to be proud of you and you yourself want to make them proud too.


Show off your achievements and make everyone around you proud!!

Struggling every day to get myself to be positive about my job. I don't really understand why I am feeling this depressed despite the learning opportunities that I am having. Some people are jealous of what I have been offered, but I myself is reading this as an overloading burden.

Am I just too tired? Am I too stressed? Am I telling myself that I am not capable enough to do the assigned tasks? Or am I feeling inferior to those men?

Overcome my fear

It's time to overcome my fear, the fear that keeps me from doing what I have to do. Fear is no longer an excuse. What has to be done is to be done no matter what.

It's also time to remind myself again and again that I CANNOT do only what I love. There are many things that people hate but they have to do them and I'm not the exception.

I'll make it big and I'll make those involved proud of their own achievement.

A Note for June 2017

Dear June,

Today is the first day of July and I already miss you.

Thanks for always being nice to me every year. Thanks for always giving me courage, hope, and strength. This year, you let me overcome my fear and unleash potential that I didn't even know that it exists. I know that I have to make things happen and be result-oriented.

Lots of love,

A dream

A dream! A dream that tells me that I am missing my old life. I was sitting with some old faces at IFL who were smiling and chit-chatting. One of them was explaining to me about my schedule and what I had to do. Although I was not sure what I had to do and I couldn't find my schedule, I was very confident that I could do the job because it was simply dealing with these youngsters whom I had managed before. Woken up by the little one's cry, I realized that it was just a dream. I know that I miss my old self and I can't stay at one place. I need to move forward, and that's the direction I am heading to.

 The confidence, the trust in myself in the dream, is what I need at the moment, and I strongly believe that sometime later on in the future, I will come back to this post and tell myself that I am confident in my new job.
