In 2012, Fund Isaan granted Prapan a scholarship when he was 18 years old. He was studying Auto Mechanics at Prasat Industrial and Community Education College, and finished his semester with a grade of 3.69 (92%).
Prapan’s parents were living in Phimai district, Nakhon Ratchasima province; they did odds jobs for a couple of thousand THB per month. This was not enough to take care of the entire family. Prapan had a younger sister who was studying in high school. His parents could not support his education; they sent him to stay with his uncle in Surin province.
