Student Portrait

As a young woman living with my mother in Myanmar, I have big dreams and aspirations for my future. I graduated from Dagon University with a degree in mathematics, and I also hold a diploma in professional secretaryship from Erudite Institute. Over the years, I have worked as an executive assistant for several international companies, gaining valuable experience and knowledge from my bosses and colleagues.

Even so, I came to a realization that I needed to take the next step in my career and become a project manager, which requires a higher level of education and training than I already possessed. However, as a young woman, I faced many challenges in achieving my goals. The cost of education and training is high in developed countries, and it can be difficult to find the resources and support necessary to succeed.

This is why I sought an education loan from Zomia. With their support, I can continue my education, achieve my professional and personal goals, and help others in my community.

In addition to my personal goals, I am also deeply committed to being a supportive daughter to my mother. My father passed away recently, leaving me as the only person responsible for her care. I want to ensure that she has everything she needs, including financial stability and security.

Furthermore, I have always had a passion for helping others. I was one of the founding members of the Myanmar Professional Secretary Association, where we helped new secretaries adapt to the working culture and provided advice and support whenever they needed it. I believe that education is key to helping others, which is why I want to continue my own education and be able to share my knowledge and expertise with others in my community.

I also have a deep desire to learn new things and to volunteer my time and resources to those in need.

In the future, I hope to become a successful project director, leading my team to achieve organizational goals while also helping my team members achieve their own dreams and aspirations.

Additionally, I want to create a social network where I can provide free advice and support to those who need it. I want to help people with their career goals, education, and any other challenges they may be facing. I believe that education and support can help individuals achieve their full potential, and I want to be a part of that process.

In conclusion, I am deeply committed to my education and to helping others. With the support of Zomia, I can achieve my dreams and make a positive impact in my community. I hope to use my education and experience to help others achieve their own goals, and to create a better future for myself and for those around me.
