Laddawee Maroomdee- She's 12, and lives with her parents, sister, cousin, and grandmother in Bangkok.

At 5:50 A.M. Noon's (Laddawee) father wakes her, and her sister, Nam, up for school. At 6:20 A.M. Noon has breakfast which her dad cooks, and it's called Khao Tom. At 11:30 A.M. she eats lunch at school, her lunch is either kluay tiaow (noodles and rice) or gai tawt (fried chicken).

At 12:30 P.M. Laddawee still has three more hours of school left. At 3:30 P.M. she goes over to her sister's school. Every other Wednesday she has dance practice. At 9:00 P.M. before Noon goes to bed she prays for her family.

Khao Tom

At 6:30 A.M. I'm woken up for school. 7:20 A.M I'm on the bus to school. Around 11:00/ 11:30 A.M. I'm in the lunchroom.

At 2:45 P.M. The bell rings and I leave to get on my bus. Around 4:30 P.M. I have usually finished my homework, if I had any, and dinner is being made. Around 7:30 P.M. I typically am on my phone until I go to bed.

Noon and I have very different times on when to get up for school, and when we leave for school. She still has recess in her school. Noon lives with her grandmother, and cousin. Noon has after school activities to do, but I don't have anything to do after school besides homework. We have quite a few differences in our lives.
