Miss Universe Thailand Earns Admiration for Honest Post Revealing She Sold Food as a Kid to Help Mom Earn Money

While Miss Thailand Chalita Suansane did not win the coveted Miss Universe 2016 crown, she still went home a hero in the eyes of her people and with much love from the Filipino people as she earned their admiration after she shared a throwback photo of herself selling food to help her mother earn money.

The post was well-received in the Philippines, especially because a lot of school kids in the country also sell various stuff or become working students just so they could continue their studies and also help their parents earn money for a living.

Many netizens also admired Suansane for being honest and for being proud of who she was even now that she has gained international attention as Thailand’s representative for Miss Universe 2016. She landed on the Top 6 but failed to advance to the Final 3.

I helped my mother to earn money since 4 years old and holding the heart of your country to a competition with 85 lovely ladies around the universe is a tough battle. To be confidently beautiful and make my country proud is my goal to hopefully be crowned as Miss Universe. I can’t guarantee i’ll win but i’ll do my best. 😊
