I wish you all a very happy and healthy day! My name is Lahpai Myu Zet Awng. I am a ninth-grade student at Htoi Ningshawng School. The reason why I drew this painting is that we Kachin people are living in a war-torn refugee camp, so we are living a difficult and war-torn life. We are like chained prisoners and our people are being tortured, and although they see the light, they do not have the strength to go to that light, hence I painted it with a grieved emotion. When I grow up, I want to be a big inventor like Bill Gates and Elon Musk, who are famous in the world. At that time, I would like to support people from around the world who are suffering like our people. I would like to ask parents and brothers and sisters who are abroad to support my painting. Thank you all very much. God bless you more!
