Recent Report Card
Praew just completed 8th grade. She earned an overall GPA of 3.19. She completed the year by earning 8 A’s total, including A’s in English, Math, and Health. She put in lot of good effort this year, and we are looking forward to seeing how far she can go.
Preaw is one of the best kids ever. She is at the very, very edge of becoming a girl/young woman, but not quite yet.
Her preferred mode is still all-out tomboy, faster and stronger than all the boys, racing, biking, climbing, sweaty whatever.
But then, sometimes, when sitting in the big dining room, she will pull herself up and do the girl thing. She will put her knees together, lift her chin and become Miss Prim and Proper. “Don’t touch me!” her eyes say. “No swinging me around, patting my head or big hugs. I’m a big girl!”
Whoa. OK. Smart as a whip. Good role model parents. Preaw will go far.
2015 – Journey to Warm Heart
Praew and her brother Tawachai come from Arye, an Akha village in the mountains too far from any schools to attend. Their parents are farmers of corn, cherries, rice, and coffee.
Initially, Praew went to a boarding school in Chiang Rai but when the boarding and food became too expensive for her parents, they asked Warm Heart to accept their children.
Praew is happy for the friendships she has forged at the Children’s Homes, loves playing with Evelind’s cats, and favors the color purple.
Praew never misses an after school English class. Grateful for the opportunity she had to continue her education, Praew aspires to go on to university in Chiang Mai or Bangkok and become a professional photographer.
