I wish you all a very happy and healthy day! My name is Labang Ji Ja. I am a ninth-grader at Alen Bum School for Internally Displaced Persons. I worked so hard to create this art because I believe our internally displaced children are suffering from a variety of diseases, and we are studying so hard in the hopes of gaining access to justice and independence for our country. Please, Kachins and others from around the world, take notice of my work and show your support. I intend to pursue a career as an actress in order to help our Kachin people who are victims of armed war. Thank you all so much.
