In the past year, Nuey has emerged as one of the real stars at Warm Heart. She is often too self-effacing, but nonetheless, is a natural leader whom the other kids follow and imitate. She can be quiet and observant, but also very funny and fully engaged. Nuey works hard in school and works hard on her homework. She is secretly ambitious, which is wonderful, and without letting on, she is a role model to other kids, showing them that school is important and that there is good reason to do well. We very much appreciate her calming presence and her solidity. She’s planning to attend Phrao High school next year in an academic track.
Nuey Sutinan is a jokester and wherever she goes, laughter trails after.
She may be the youngest of three children of poor, subsistence farmers in the Karen Hill Tribe village of Mae Soon, but she’s not looking back.
She loves math and already knows that someday she wants to be an accountant.
Of course, math does not take up all her time, and when she is not in the dining room studying with our math teacher, Leung Ead, she is in the library crafting or playing games.
