Kanoon became a Fund Isaan scholarship student in 2014. She was 18 and studying Science (teacher) in her first year at Surindra Rajabhat University. She wanted to become a Science teacher.
Kanoon lived alone with her mother in Baan Takuk village. Her father passed away a few years before she started her university. Seen her age her mother could not run the family’s rice farm on her own. She rented the farm to other people. This left them with barely any income.
