Yupayong Tawonsap was raised in a safe, strong Buddhist home. However she says that her father was extremely aloof. Wanting her to have a good education, her parents sent her to Bangkok. But Yupayong soon fell in love with a boy her age, dropped out of school and moved in with him. Soon afterwards she met and joined The Well at age 16.
The next few years were difficult, and Yupayong left The Well for a while. Over the last year she has developed into a strong leader, and now heads our metalworking department, leads and teaches in our worship, and is a mentor to other young women.
Yupayong has a very feminine personality, shown in her light, delicate designs.
