I was born in Burma but grew up in the Thailand refugee camp. I spent 16 years in Thailand before coming to the USA on June 23, 2008. I started going to Paul Harding High School as a sophomore and was enrolled in ESL program for a year. At Paul Harding, I focused on achieving my goals including learning English, participating in extracurricular activities, and doing well in all my classes. I speak Burmese and English. I also found a part time job at a local restaurant to help my parents financially. Moving to a new country and settling was a huge challenge for my family and I. I graduated high school in 2011 but also enjoy doing make up, hairs, and it’s also my passion. I went beauty school for a year and graduated in 2015 .I worked at a salon for one year. I’m currently employed at Sebastian Family Psychology Practice, LLC as a Burmese interpreter.
