More than 160 people turned out to enjoy singing and dancing, a show from Pattaya School No. 9 students, and a video called “Our Stories Shared.”

Kasemsuk started the Happiness Camp in 2000 as a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Pattaya-Jomtien and private-sector to train teachers and students with Buddhist lessons to be used in daily life to increase their potential. After stepping away from academics, she is now returning to volunteering on the city Academic Committee as a volunteer teacher.
