Not finished the first term of 9th grade with a strong improvement with a 3.03 average (up from 2.72). She has earned a volleyball scholarship to Chiang Mai Polytechnic College and is thrilled to be going there for high school. She has gained self-confidence and is a leader among the girls at Warm heart.
Not is another abandoned kid who is making Warm Heart into her home and family – and is flourishing.
She’s a 13-year-old Lanna Thai girl from a local village whose parents and older sister just disappeared one day.
Her aunt and uncle took her in but as unskilled day laborers, they could not care for her, let alone send her to school.
They wanted Not to have a chance so they brought her to Warm Heart.
Not wants to be a pro athlete, maybe playing for … Thailand. She certainly has the drive and the energy!
