The project is about the transition in Myanmar in which we research how everyday people notice the improvement/changes in their daily lives as well as in their community because of the transition. The reason of why we are interested in doing this project is that Myanmar was under the governance of military regime for over 60 years during which we lost our basic human rights. Since 2010 Myanmar has become a country that leads to democracy.
Thus, our project was to learn how the transition is actually affecting all people. We believe that the results would be crucial. With the support from Mentor Foundation, I am able to work on this project since December, 2013. In March 2013 my mentor and I visited many places in Myanmar, meeting and interviewing people for our research project.
Doing all of this was a financial hardship; the support of Mentor’s empowered me to not only work on the project but also to complete my thesis with valuable experiences and information I gained from the research with my mentor. With the help of my mentor, Matthew Mullen, my thesis will be completed in two months. At the same time, we hope to finish our project as well. I would be so glad to share my experiences and information about my country. You can contact me through Mentors.
