BLACKPINK’s Lisa honored for contributions to education and being a good role model in Thailand
BLACKPINK’s Lisa is a female idol who inspires young people in Thailand.
BLACKPINK is currently one of the most popular K-Pop acts with great influence throughout Asia and beyond. All 4 members are known as fashion icons and global stars with large fan bases.
Recently, BLACKPINK’s Lisa has continued to make fans proud when she was awarded a plaque by Buriram Province (Thailand) in recognition of her contributions to advocating education and being an important role model that inspires the youth and children.
This award honors Lisa’s support of establishing a K-Pop teaching center in Buriram province. She also helped a local school receive support from the Korean organization by arranging a cultural exchange program for young people.
Chitthip Bruschweiler (Lisa’s mother) accepted this award on behalf of her daughter. During the award ceremony, the head of the provincial education office expressed appreciation for Lisa’s contributions: “She has achieved success globally but never forgot where she came from. She has become a role model for local children”.
Lisa is reportedly interested in creating a cultural space in the Non-Suwan Pittayakom school in Buriram. In addition to the K-Pop teaching center, the female singer also plans to donate computers and projectors to the school to support performing arts education.
Lisa’s successful career has inspired many local young people when it comes to education, regardless of the fact that she once sparked controversy over her academic level. Lisa is known to have only finished secondary education.
As a foreign idol, Lisa had to practice harder and go through more difficulties than others. In 2011, Lisa went to Korea alone to become a trainee. Like the other 3 members of BLACKPINK, Lisa did not attend high school to focus on developing her career as a K-Pop artist.
Lisa used to be subjected to criticism because she only completed middle school. However, many fans believe that Lisa still has good foreign language skills. She also has many remarkable contributions to young people and is now successful in her own career.
