Aung San Suu Kyi

 

Recently there have a news regarding freed of Aung San Suu Kyi (昂山素姬), a great women fighting for democracy in Burma. For then only I started to know about her. For 21 years placed under continuous house arrest, she have not stop in hoping giving a democratic world to Burmese people.

She even won the Nobel Peace price at 1991 during the arrest. Where his son was helping her to receive the prize. And she had used the Nobel Prize money (of 1.3 bil USD) to establish health and education trust for Burmese.

Some brief about the her history from BBC news (source):

  • Born 1945, daughter of Burma’s independence hero, General Aung San, assassinated in 1947
  • 1960: Leaves Burma and is later educated at Oxford University
  • 1988: Returns to care for sick mother and is caught up in revolt against then-dictator Ne Win
  • 1989: Put under house arrest as Burma junta declares martial law
  • 1990: NLD (National League for Democracy) wins election; military disregards result
  • 1991: Wins Nobel Peace Prize
  • 1995: Released from house arrest, but movements restricted
  • 2000: Near continuous period of house arrest begins
  • Sept 2007: First public appearance since 2003, greeting protesting Buddhist monks
  • November 2010: NLD boycotts first election in 20 years and is disbanded; House arrest ends

For me, I am very much admire this kind of lady. She have the gorgeousness not from pretty outfit like celebrity but what make she looks more than gorgeous is the inside of what she have, knowledges, brave, and determination.

Young people like us should know more about her, who from a house wife transform and become a great leader for the country, even now the world. We have very much to learn from her.

Some of her information can be found from URL below:
