I was born in Northeast Thailand in the rice farming region of Ubon Ratchathani, in the city of Amnatcharoen. I was raised in a religious Buddhist family, and I am very active in my local community and involved in all religious events at the local wat (temple). I went to school at The British Council in Bangkok, and moved to New York in the summer of 2002. In New York, I graduated from Hunter College’s IELI program. I enjoy traveling the world and visiting sun soaked beaches.
