8 year old Supapit Porn-Umnuayphon, a student in Thailand’s Samut Songkhram Province, has been showing some of the poems and articles she has created, all about her beloved king Rama 9th. Supapit said she has always loved drawing. When King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away last October, Supapit began writing articles about his passing and the grief she shares with all the Thai people.
She has also drawn dozens of imaginative portraits because she loves him, even though she never saw him in person. The 8 year old also promises to follow his teachings.
During an interview, little Supapat demonstrated her talent by writing a touching poem about the late king ….in front of the reporter.
