Being different can be a blessing or a curse, or both.
Being different has not been easy for 10 year old Supatra “Nat” Sasuphan.
A resident of Pranakorn, Thailand, Supatra has suffered from a very unusual medical condition which causes excessive hair growth on her face.
This has caused her a lot of pain and suffering over the years as other children and classmates have called her names such as “monkey face,” “wolf girl” and “wolfy;” and strangers have stared at and pointed at her in the street and in shopping malls.
Recently, however, little Supatra’s fortunes have changed. After a short interview process, she has been named “hairiest girl in the world” by Guinness World Records.
Now, she is a celebrity and other children want to be her friend. She has become popular.
Now, having found herself popular, Supatra has undertaken some new and fun activities.
She acts, she sings and she dances both alone and with her new friends. She loves Thai pop music and just might be a young and rising star.
Supatra, like many people over the years, has learned that being different has its advantages as well as its disadvantages.
Hopefully, her good experiences will continue.
