Minnie Ongsricharoenporn is Managing Editor at Lifestyle Asia Bangkok. She previously joined Prestige Thailand as an intern in 2014 before rejoining BurdaLuxury Bangkok full-time.
How's your career journey like at BurdaLuxury?
I was on a summer break from university and took up an internship with Prestige in 2014, where I learned the ins and outs of working for a lifestyle media company. It was the defining moment that helped me learn about what working for a lifestyle media company was like, and I’ve contributed to the publication a couple times throughout the years. Seven years later I’m back with BurdaLuxury as the managing editor of Lifestyle Asia Bangkok.
What’s something you find challenging about your work?
Working for a digital publication also means working against time and other publications to get a story out and make sure people are reading us. But that’s also the most exciting part! It keeps me updated on what’s going on in the world.
What’s the top destination on your must-visit list?
Does outer space count? I’d love to get a bird’s eye view of the earth one day.
If you could give your past self advice, what would it be?
Start building your network early. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there!
