The generosity of many anonymous donors has helped an ethnic Hmong student to continue her studies after poverty almost forced her to abruptly end her education.
Thamolwan Wang decided to quit her studies at Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi in Pathum Thani in January last year after just one semester to return home to help her parents in Chiang Kham district in Phayao.
Knowing his promising student was packing her bags and preparing to leave the campus for good, Kunlachart Junpalen, who is her advisor, posted her story on his Facebook account seeking help. The response was amazing with assistance pouring in and allowing her to carry on.
Ms Thamolwan, who was born to a Hmong family in the northern province, had a Grade Point Average of 3.07.
She said at home last year that she wanted to ease the financial burden on her mother and would go to work so that her sister could attend nursing school. Loans from the Student Loan Fund were not enough to cover her outgoings, she added.
The young student, who was studying textile chemical engineering at the university, was able to postpone that plan thanks to from donors after the story was shared on the social media.
Ms Thamolwan returned to the university and Mr Kunlachart posted an update on his student on Sunday, saying she received an A in all subjects last semester, making her cumulative GPA at 3.32.
"I hoped everybody who supports this good student is proud of her. Thank you," he wrote.
Wilailak Saengsrichan, a coordinator of the King Rama V Foundation in Chiang Kham, one of the sponsors, said Ms Thamolwan intends to return home after getting her degree to preserve Hmong textiles.
"Nong Da is an example of a student with determination who is doing her best for her future and the future of her family," Mrs Wilailak said, referring to the student by her nickname.

Art Class, Target’s newest Kids’ apparel and accessories brand, is soon-to-be in session! The trendy line is all about encouraging kids to express themselves through what they’re wearing, just like an actual art class.
Hot on the heels of last year's introduction of megahit lines Pillowfort and Cat & Jack, Art Class will feature a fashion-forward aesthetic with its of-the-moment picks and seasonal selects for boys and girls. The brand also will feature limited-edition, capsule collections on an ongoing basis. Color us excited!
“Over the past year, our teams have reimaged our assortment for kids, and guests have loved the introduction of new Target brands including Pillowfort and Cat & Jack,” said Michelle Wlazlo, senior vice president of apparel and accessories at Target. “Art Class provides kids, and their parents, another great reason to choose Target. The line gives kids the ability to have fun with their fashion – creating looks that are truly their own and truly original – all while offering moms and dads with the value and convenience their busy lives demand.”
The first item on the Art Class syllabus? A limited-edition partnership called The Class of 2017, which will feature more than 100 items, including on-trend graphic tees, knit joggers, cut-off shorts, gauze dresses and more. Here’s the coolest part: We teamed up with 10 talented youngsters who have made their mark on everything from surfing to photography to publishing, and asked them to help us design a collection that kids everywhere will love. These rising stars have already accomplished some pretty big things for their ages—and now they’ll add “fashion designer for Target” to their growing list of achievements. Meet The Class of 2017 below:
St. Paul’s Hmong Village Shopping Center is a step closer to a $700,000 makeover of its frequently overcrowded parking lot.
The shopping center, which opened in the Phalen Village area at 1001 Johnson Parkway in 2010, has grown to become one of the largest retail hubs on the East Side. Its popularity, however, has contributed to traffic backups and safety concerns.
Meeting as the St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority on Wednesday, the St. Paul City Council approved a $75,000 grant to the Hmong Village Shopping Center to expand the parking lot by 120 spaces, acquire 38,000 square feet of additional land from St. Paul Parks and Recreation and add landscaping to blend it into the parkway.
“This has become a destination, not only for St. Paul people, but for people from all over the Midwest area — a lot of people from Wisconsin are coming,” said Council Member Dan Bostrom, who represents the area.
Shopping center owners are assembling a financing package with the help of the North East Neighborhoods Development Corp. Chuck Repke, the corporation director, said 6,000 people live in affordable housing within walking distance of the shopping center.
“This becomes a major service to them,” he said.
