A 19-year-old girl who looks like she is an 8-year-old child is found in Loei Province. The Sanook News Team went to visit the girl and her family at their home in a rose farm named Mae Jeab Rose Garden in Phu Reu District, Loei on 3 January 2020. When the team arrived they found Kantima Wansiri 19 years old helping her mother Bunklai Wansiri 59 years old planting roses in their garden.
Kantima stated that she is currently 19 years old and is 120 centimeters tall. She graduated from grade 6 and chose to help her mother work in the rose farm. She never thinks that she is less than anyone nor is she ashamed. People stare at her no matter where she goes but all who know her don’t ask why she is so tiny for her age. Sometimes strangers will talk about how she is so small but she doesn’t get angry. Kantima is proud of who she is and never looks down on herself as to why she is shorter than other adults.
Kantima is happy helping her mom out every day and her goal is to be a good person so that no one can look down on her. Bunklai the mother stated that she has 2 girls, the oldest is 30 years old and works Bangkok while Kantima is her youngest. When she was 6-7 months pregnant with Kantima she was working in Wang Sapung District and accidentally hit her baby bump. The baby stopped moving and she thought it was dead. Then when she was exactly 7 months pregnant she gave birth to Kantima who weighed only 1,000 grams, she was so tiny. Bunklai fed Kantima mother milk and supplements that she could afford.
Kantima was never bullied in school, the teachers felt sorry for her so they let Kantima sit in front of the class. She decided to not continue Kantima’s education after grade 6 because she didn’t want Kantima to enter a new school and get bullied by other children. Bunklai was afraid that Kantima would feel like she is less than others. Wherever Bunklai goes Kantima goes too, they always help each other out and get along well in everyday life.
