"... Im going alone and freaking out!..."
No need to worry.
Unless you're making a concerted effort to get waaay off the beaten path then your biggest worry in Thailand will be how to get away from other backpackers.
hey there my daughter has to leave oz for a while till her visa is sorted out she is 24 needs to travel a bit where r u she needs to go on the 5th feb r u there already and need some company then as we are not sure where she should go and pretty scared for her to go on her own x
Thailand is the easiest/simplest "opposite-of-western-culture" backpacker destination in the world.
Unless she goes waaay off the beaten path your daughter will be buried under an avalanche of other foreign backpackers.
Honestly, there's no need to troll for companionship on an anonymous Internet travel discussion forum - your daughter will meet TONS of other backpackers face-to-face.
