Khanittha 'Mint' Phasaeng could not believe that she was crowned as Miss Uncensored News Thailand 2015. With full of honor and gratitude, she went home to her hometown to thank her mother for all the hardwork raising her and become who she is now.

The 17-year-old beauty queen has touched the people across the world through this photo that circulated online. In the photo, the young beauty queen showed the highest form of expressing great respect to her mother by kneeling in front of her wearing her tiara and silk sash.

Digging into the reason behind the viral photo, netizens felt more touched by the beauty queen’s humble past. According to reports, Mint was raised by her mother alone and before bringing home the crown, she helped her mother in collecting and sorting the garbage that they gathered and did some menial jobs in order to contribute a little on their daily expenses. She gave up school in order to make way for the education of her brother and lessen their household expenses.
Despite her background, Mint tried to audition in Miss Uncensored News and won for the first time.
“When the referee announced the winner it felt like a dream. I thought how can an ordinary girl like me be a beauty queen. All I have accomplished today is because of my mother's hard work,” Mint told.

Now, Mint has signed contracts on various projects in advertisement, film and television. Although she’s now living her dream, she mentioned that her family will still continue to collect and sort garbage.
