The seventeen year old Khanittha Phasaeng won the Miss Thailand title on September 25th, 2015. The beauty queen went back to her family home right after the awards ceremony so she could thank her mother for everything. She says that what she’s accomplished in life is all thanks to her mother. The woman worked hard all of her life, collecting and segregating rubbish, making not a lot of money, which she used caring for Khanitthy.
The girl kneeled before her mother near dirty bins and in a meaningful way she thanked her for the effort she put in raising her. The beauty queen didn’t even have time to change. She came in her beautiful outfit, wearing a silk ribbon and crown on her head.
She didn’t feel embarrassed. She and I make a living doing honest work. I don’t see a reason why I should feel bad or be ashamed of it.
When the judge said that I’ve won, I felt like I was dreaming. I didn’t think that a normal girl can become a beauty queen. Everything I’ve accomplished, I owe to my mother.
After winning, the girl got a lot of job offers. Let’s hope that their tuff situation will eventually get better. Let’s root for the beautiful queen and her courageous mother!
