Nyi Nyi Kyaw, Burma
A late Burmese postmodern novelist writes “It is either most difficult or easiest to recount one’s life.” I agree with him since I have a long story. But simple facts will only be exposed here. I am one of the Burmese 1996 students’ generation, who had to wait for 4 years to go to university after high school due to the closure of universities. After graduation, I became a journalist learning about Burmese politics and life firsthand. I have also done some field research back home. My aim is to become a researcher on Burma after this MHRD program.
