I thank my family, all of my professors, friends, my CU family, and everyone that has supported me, granted me the opportunity, and shaped me to be who I am today.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”- these words have motivated Panisara to live life to the fullest with no regrets. She also shares that one should always be a glass half full and willing to learn new things.

“We can always continue to grow and develop ourselves to no end. Every day we can learn something new and become a better person”, says Panisara.

“My dream is to become a judge.  I want to be able to help the community.  After this, I will be preparing for the bar exam and look into furthering my education to gain more experience in academics and law”, ends Panisara.

The Royal Student Award was initiated in 1963, following the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s wish to recognize and support quality education.   The award is granted to students who maintain professionalism, integrity, nobility, with excellence in study and behavior.  The award is also given to educational institutions that offer high-quality curriculum and exemplar graduates.
