Hello, my name is Ahara Henris, and I’m the person who writes most of the guides that you can find on this website. What’s special about me? Well, I moved to the US when I was 15. My mom married my stepdad, an American, so we moved from Thailand. There was a lot of mess with getting a K-1 visa and then getting a green card but now I understand that it was absolutely worth every effort. It wasn’t hard for me to assimilate, but I was more than surprised to find out that a lot of things that Americans think about Thai people, in particular, women weren’t even close to what they are really like.
My mom and my stepdad had a great relationship, a happy family, so I didn’t actually understand why people consider dating someone from another cultural environment such a big problem. Moreover, when I was younger I tried to convince people telling them that Thai girls are not easy, a very few of them work with bar girls, and that Bangkok is actually not the only city where things like in Hangover 2 happen. One day, the team of ThaiBrides.org contacted me—they needed an insider who knows a thing about Thai culture, and I needed a job. I worked as one of the consultants, part-time, but soon became a full-time author. I’m grateful for such an opportunity not only because it’s a great job but also because now I have a chance to tell more people about what Thai women are really like.
