Introducing myself and my journal: Mirror

About Me:
I am Aye Lae. I was born in Taunggyi, a beautiful town which it is located in southern part of Shan State, Burma. I left my beloved family and respective home village in the past four years ago due to the repression by the infamous military dictatorship. Although, I could go to school and persued higher education in Burma but I always felt empty and hopeless regarding to the lack of freedom. I love to read and write. However, I have never had a chance to express my real feeling against injustice in my society. I have had a realization that we, Burmese people can not fully experience our freedom to speak out. Now I am working as a journalist in exile (Thailand) and I can consistantly practice and experince some sort of freedom which I could not get them back home. I am a dedicated journalist and a committed young spirit that will serve, educate and entertain people in Burma for a better furthur and overall for change and development in my community and society.

My Passions:
seeking the truth and freedom

My Challenges:
no chance to do reporting inside my own country

My Vision for the Future:
want to be a professional woman journalist in a free society of Burma

My Areas of Expertise:
Networking

Welcome

Aye Lae,
We are so thrilled that you have joined our online community. It is so difficult for women in Burma to let their voices ring out and so although, you are in exile, you have the wonderful opportunity to speak for them and break the silence. I look forward to reading your posts and hope you will join our Burma Cafe group where you will find a support network of members with similar visions. It is through the courage of women like you that lives are transformed, movements are started and laws reformed. We are honored to have you as part of our community. Blessings to you,
Janice Wong
PulseWire Community Director
