Torfan lives with her parents, grandparents and younger brother in a Thai Buddhist community in the Bannang Sata District, about 40 kilometers from Yala. They speak Southern Thai at home, which is also the official language at Torfan's school. Her favorite subjects are drawing and dance. Her favorite season is summer, because she likes to play in sea water. When she grows up she wants to become a teacher, a nurse or maybe a painter. She would like to visit Korea or Japan so she could play in the snow.
