In this video, I am speaking Danish. I haven’t spoken Danish for 7 years since I moved to London in summer 2009.
My name is Buppha Wittaya-Amponpunt. I moved to London about 7-8 years ago, to pursue my dream as an actress. I like it a lot. It’s very different from Denmark. Here in London, you have to be rather strong, confident, and independent since you have to do everything yourself. And because here, people are coming from all over the world, for example: There are lots of tourists, people from Eastern Europe, France, etc. So, there are lots and lots of people in a big city, London. It’s the same as New York and so on. To be strong, it comes naturally. If you’re not strong enough, then you can’t live in London. Therefore, I love being here because it made me stronger. I wasn’t that independent when I was in Denmark. Of course, I was independent enough, but not as much as I am now. So, London has made me more independent and strong like never before. And that is a good thing.
It’s also a city of dream. You can make your dreams come true here if you really wanted to. It’s a matter of willpower, of how badly you want it, then there is a good chance that you can make your dreams come true here in London. So, there is a lot of opportunities here. And I think, it is an ideal city to begin with. You will never get bored. There are lots of things to do. As the day goes by, you become stronger and stronger. You learn a lot here in London. So, it is worthwhile to come to London if you want to obtain new knowledge and to experience something new. Or, if you want to pursue your dreams, like me. So again, it is a fantastic city to start.
And I am glad that I took a chance to travel to London. And now, it’s been 7-8 years ago, and I am still here in London. And I think, I have grown up more. I just feel like, I’ve grown more up here in London. I don’t know. It’s such a completely different feeling than 7-8 years ago, just before I moved to London. Now, I am more strong than never before. I feel, I can handle everything. It has helped me both personally and professionally.
Now, I’m very busy in my pursuit of success, to become a working actress. I have lots to do at the minute. I have a lot of works in film, TV, commercial, etc. It’s very exciting! I learn new things every day, which I love it. Now, I am working on my own feature film. I’m so excited to see, how it will go. And I plan to shoot the film with my mobile phone.
Well, I just wanted to say that it is exciting to be here. You become stronger and stronger. And you learn something new every day. So, I don’t regret that I moved to here. I made the right choice to come here, I think. And now, I have my hands full with pursuing my dreams. I shall wait and see. But I can sense, I am getting closer and closer to my goals. So, I am grateful for what London has given me up till now. I am doing well on a daily basis. I think, you shouldn’t be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone. I think that if you dare to take a chance, then you will be ok. Everything is going to be just fine. Therefore, you’d not give up that easily.
I am a totally, new person now. I feel reborn. I am glad that I have learned a lot. And there is a lot to learn. It’s not over, yet. Every day, I look forward to learning new thing: What is it do I have to learn today? Every day, there is something new and exciting waiting for me.
That’s all for now.
See you again soon!
