Greetings from Labya Bawk Tawng! May you all live long and prosper. Despite the fact that I am a 10th grade student at the Alen Bum School for Internally Displaced Children, I am unable to continue my studies due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the country’s political upheaval. I desperately wish to be free of the Burmese army’s persecution. I pray for the soldiers fighting on the front lines for the people. I’m thankful for the opportunity to take part in the art program. I want to be a doctor when I grow up and help the people of Kachin State who are suffering from a variety of problems. My wishes are depicted in these artworks. Let me make a request to artists residing in other countries to promote our artwork. Thank you all so much.
