I am indebted to my parents and my teachers — Thin Saya, Myin Saya and Kyar Saya — for helping me develop a passion for Learning and Dissemination of Knowledge and Expertise.
Our ancestors were philanthropists. They donated schools and books, hospitals and medicine, and buildings (Tazaung, zayat, shelter).
I am trying to emulate the philanthropy of our ancestors by sharing my knowledge and expertise.
