A photo of Khanitta “Mint” Phasaeng, a little Thai girl who won the Miss Uncensored News Thailand beauty pageant two years ago and humbly kneeling to thank her mother after the contest became viral on the internet.


Mint returned to her hometown without hesitation to express her gratitude to her mother by kneeling before her, still wearing her crown and sash, as a display of filial piety.

Thai Radio Station Page Feel 96.5 Rayong, published the pictures of Mint kneeling, and they went viral.


Netizens everywhere approved of her noble action, as she knelt on hands and knees, with her head bowed. This is the highest honor one can give to elders in Thailand.


“I’m quite pleased with it. Garbage collection is a legitimate career. I grew up with enough to eat, was able to finish high school because my rubbish-collecting mum supported me,” said Mint.

“It is probably not much for other people but for my mother and I, every single baht that we earn is precious,


“Thanks to my mom, I have everything I have today.” “Neither she nor I make a living doing honest work, so there’s no need for me to feel inferior,” she explained.

Mint grew up in poverty; her parents separated when she was young, and she was unable to continue her schooling due to financial constraints.

When the referee announced the winner, Mint claimed she couldn’t believe it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for her.


She reminds us that even if we have achieved success in life, we should never forget our parents and where we come from.
