Daisy Pongrakthai: Through all of my travels across the U.S. to Hawaii to Thailand, Sweden, India, Nepal, and South America, I searched for my true purpose in life, my gift or talent, to contribute to the well-being of our societies. But I never truly discovered that resolve until I founded a low-power FM station in Duvall, WA in 2013. This experience kick-started earlier visions of seeing communities on a small scale connecting through media and social gatherings. From arranging unsuccessful meetings to a local publication around 2010, the milestone of starting Radio Duvall KRDI-LP 103.1FM was the inspired movement that brought my visions closer to reality.  From there I traveled to my longed-for landscape of Northeast Washington and dowsed with radio interviewing of local community leaders. In ongoing efforts to find an outlet to connect community, I started freelance writing and opened Panorama PR & Writing Services. With a featured focus on farms, I believe at the very grass roots level of living is the land, and those taking care of the land are doing a great service for local stewardship. I see local media outlets as valuable and effective beneficiaries to connecting people and building stronger communities.
