This is Khem, CCS Program Director here in Trang. She has been the director for the past five years during which over 300 volunteers have come to Thailand. Soft-spoken, hard-working and dedicated, she oversees every detail and her job is not an easy one. She handles EVERYTHING, including volunteers who become ill or any problems that may arise at a placement. Soon, CCS will need to find a replacement as Khem is getting married the week after I leave here.
Her wedding will be a big one with over 700 hundred guests. If I were still here, I would be invited, as will all the volunteers who are here then. She has told me a lot about the customs and ceremony, so I will be sorry to miss to miss it! Her fiance is an American from Rhode Island and they plan to live there--so she will need to adjust to the cold weather. Her English is excellent and she has studied in the U.S. and visited many times, so I think she'll adjust fast.
Lovely young woman, lovely quiet way about her...and no doubt that she is the "boss-lady."
