Matang winning this competition makes her the second women to win and also the youngest person who has ever won this competition for the eleven years it has been going on since she is just fifteen years old.

She comes from Udonthani which the Northeastern province of Thailand. Both her mother and father are teachers and therefore she is not from a rich family.

She started showing interest in music while very young and despite her talent she has never attended any music school. Instead, she just learns to sing by herself where she sings different types of songs. Therefore, her talent is natural and has not been enhanced in any way through training.
