What does Thai beauty queen Hanitta Phasaeng look like now, whose photo has spread all over the world

Wthere are years ago a photo of a girl from Bangkok flew around the world. Many, having seen him, asked themselves an involuntary question: why is this Thai girl in a crown and with a ribbon of a beauty queen kneeling in front of a simply dressed woman against the backdrop of garbage cans?

Worth reminding history, which instantly spread through online publications and attracted the attention of users on all continents of the planet. Then a touching photo appeared on the network, in which a young 17-year-old beauty queen, immediately after the end of a popular contest in Thailand, sincerely thanks her mother.

Wearing a sparkling crown, silk dress and high heels, 17-year-old Hanitta "Mint" Phasaeng won the Miss Thailand at the nationwide Miss Uncensored News Thailand pageant, knelt in front of her mother by the dirty trash cans to express her appreciation for everything she had done for her in life.

This touching moment captured the hearts of many people as Mint's mother, who raised her alone, made a living collecting and sorting garbage. It should be said that for many Asians, the highest form of respect is to kneel, in a situation where feelings come from a pure heart.

The Mint family can be called poor without any doubt. The girl was brought up in an incomplete family. Her mother was unable to find an opportunity to send her daughter to college after she graduated from high school. Although Mint has always strived for education.

She only performed on stage during the intermissions of the show while the main dancers, band and singers rested. So does she moonlighted as a saleswoman used clothes.

Despite her poverty, Mint always maintained an optimistic outlook on life, continuing to help her family as much as she could. She believed and always told her mother that there would definitely be good changes in her life, that she just had to wait.
