I marked this day to salute it all to my mother.

As a single mum,
a confident women,
a trusted leader,
and a good friend of her daughter;
She raised me so well to become who I am today.

That’s why she deserves to be my inspiration and a role model for all single mums in the world.

I embranced what women can do for her family, her work, and her society to make our world a better living place for all the living things.

– Khun Nirawan Vilaiswan

My mum has inspired me to get through all the challenges – with three preious tips in life;

A lot of women inspire me and if I had to select one (apart from my mum), it will be P’Rose Rosalina Alexandra, founder of “The Rainbow Room: A Special Needs Awareness Centre”.

I have known her for a very long time and throughout the years, her actions and words genuinely reflect her values which comes straight from her angelic soul.

She’s smart, funny, caring, warm and strong.
She gives me hope for humanity.

– Khun Asida Tawatsin

Zaha Hadid, the greatest female architect ever lived, is one of the most famous women who inspires me the most.

She’s the one who liberated typical architechtural geometry and symmetry with expressive identity which has never been seen before.

Her outstanding works include 950 projects in 44 countries.

She was the first women to get the Pritzker Architechture Prize which is equivalent to a Nobel Prize in Architech, was named one of the 100 most powerful women in the world by Forbes and was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II despite of her background as immigrant from iraq.

– Khun Bhidak Indraduta

Anne Frank is ispirational to me.
She makes me think about how human can be driven to such extremes in times of peril.

One of her quotes I really like, “Those who have courage and faith shall never perish in misery”.

– Khun Jitlada Sidhu
MediaCom Thailand


Actually there are many women who inspire me – the most recently is Ellen DeGeneres, the American comedian and the host of The Ellen Show.

She has been through the best and the most difficult times when she announced that she is gay. But finally she could successfully rise up again.

And what I inspired from her speech and her life is about “stay true to yourself”.

It’s about to live your life with integrity and not consent to peer pressure to try to be something that you’re really not.
Be honest and compassionate person and to contribute in some way.

This is something that really capture and inspires me.
