GirlGeek of the Week
Areewan spent her undergraduate years in Bangkok,
Thailand, studying political science at Chulalongkorn University.
In late 1996 she relocated to the US to continue her studies. Instead
of pursuing politics further, Areewan chose the geeky path, earning
a Master's degree in computer art from the Savannah College of Art
and Design in Georgia.
Though she was always attracted to art, it's the use of digital
media that led to her career change. "We live with art," says Areewan,
"People need to see it in everyday life in new and innovative ways."
