When Pili Opal left Udon Thani, a farming region in north-eastern Thailand, to go to University in Bangkok, she bravely left her family to improve her life and theirs through her education.
Pili says, “When I created Respect International Academy I had much more than modeling In my mind. I wanted more. I wanted to change lives. I wanted to help people, men, women, children, discover who they are but maybe never saw. And never let anyone take that away from them, ever. When I help people I help my country rise up”.
