Wilasinee, 15, EDF Scholarship Candidate (Grade7-9) Year 2021, Buriram Province

Sawasdee Ka, my name is Wilasinee, 15 years old, currently studying Grade 9 in Buriram province. My family is poor because my parents broke up and my mother has to work alone to earn enough money to pay off all the expenses in the family. We have 5 people in our family including me and 2 siblings. We live together in an almost ruined house.

My mother works as a menial worker with a weekly wage of 500 Baht.  I always help my mother with chores to lessen her burden as much as I can do. I love studying Computer and Arts. In my free time, I love drawing and painting. I also love playing sports such as Pétanque until I have been nominated as school representative for the Pétanque competition.

The condition of the house where Wilasinee's family is living together.

I dream to be a designer because I love drawing and Arts, therefore, I am applying for a scholarship to pursue my dream. I always remind myself that “The success begins with action” If we do not start doing anything, we could not succeed.

Wilasinee helps with chores at home to lessen the burden of her mother.

If I could get a scholarship, I would spend it on my school expenses. I plan to continue my study until I could finish high school so that I can pursue my dream career and earn enough income to support my family
