Erin ‘Stan’ Stanley

Coming from the driest state in the driest country in the world (South Australia, Australia), water has always been a resource to use responsibly. I have been working in Thailand on the mighty Chao Phraya river for the past eight years, seeing every day how water is so important for our every day lives, wherever you may live in the world.I am pleased to be a part of River of Words in South East Asia helping students to learn, create and share. To realise that imagination can teach and inspire just as much as facts and figures! I look forward to seeing such work as a part of this thoughtful project.
