Nathrada Lekatanachol

When young “Joy” Nathrada bit her primary school teacher on her arm, her teacher didn’t punish her. Instead, in a story recounted in front of hundreds at a recent 2015 TedX talk, her teacher instead expressed her faith that Nathrada would grow up to be a good person. Since then, she has advocated for the importance of education – for children who are not from a loving family, their teachers may be their only dependable resource. With a degree in management, she works part-time at a university and has joined Teach for Thailand as external relations head, helping the organisation to partner with the public and private sector to deliver quality teachers to schools that need them the most.
