Marsha is currently a first year Ph.D. student in Biological & Biomedical Sciences at Harvard Medical School. She graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.  Growing up in Indonesia, Marsha was touched by the gap in the qualities of education in Indonesia. She took a gap year after high school to teach and volunteer in various areas in Indonesia. From her travels, she was inspired to continue teaching and making an impact in education in Indonesia. As she came to MIT, she fell in love with SEALNet’s culture and people who share the same values and passion as she does. She has served the MIT Chapter in various ways, and decided to further contribute to SEALNet by being a co-president. Through SEALNet, she hopes to pursue her lifelong passion to inspire younger students, empower people through education, and nurture future leaders in Southeast Asia. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, dancing, and fashion.

 

Ronnachai Tiam Jaroensri
Board member

unnamed

Tiam grew up in the suburb of Bangkok and got lost halfway around the world to wind up as a PhD student at MIT. Coming from a relatively poor neighborhood, he experienced firsthand the socioeconomic gap in the society. He believes firmly that youth leadership education would help ease the gap either directly or indirectly.

Tiam first joined SEALNet when he was a freshmen at Stanford university. Through SEALNet, he grows as a leader and makes many friends who are committed to service in Southeast Asia. He now joins the board of director with a commitment to recreating/bettering the experience for the younger generations to come.

Being an outdoor junkies, Tiam loves being outside at any given time of the year. He enjoys hiking, camping, skiing, sailing, scuba diving, and so on. He also loves cooking and eating good food, which leads him to spend countless hours pondering over his failed attempt to lose weight.
