Being ethnically Thai and Lao, Southeast Asia has always been a region that Lyna has held close to her heart and with her passion for the emerging world, led her to pursue International Business with a focus in Marketing and French.

Lyna was heavily involved in various cultural student organizations throughout her time in college which she eventually fulfilled leadership positions throughout her academic career. This caused her to be exposed to different languages, cultures and people.

Throughout the last five years, Lyna has travelled to Thailand multiple times serving in multiple ways. Her role with GEI in Thailand includes facilitating and  coordinating Unleashed Internships along with creating, developing and designing content for the program.
