I wish you all a very happy and healthy day! My name is Manam Bawk Ring Ja. I am a ninth-grade student at Htoi Ningshawng School. The purpose of my painting is to show that the Burmese army is doing such atrocities to us Kachin people. They oppressed us and I can’t stand it. Not only that, this painting was drawn in memory of losing the land of our Kachin people as the Burmese Army grabbed our lands militarily. My goal is to become a world-renowned educator and a person who teaches people to become educators in Kachin country. May God bless those who support my painting. Thank you very much.
