I wish you all a very happy and healthy day! My name is Shaya Pri Dim. I am a ninth-grader at Alen Bum School for Internally Displaced Persons. I am participating in this art program because I want to remind the rest of the world how much our Kachin people are suffering as a result of the war. They are forced to abandon their homes, lands, and animals while hungry and displaced, and every time I think of them, I am filled with sorrow for my Kachin people, who have been suffering for decades. With the heaviness in my heart, I created this work of art. People from all across the world show your support for those of us who are displaced, please. My ambition is to become a model that inspires inner strength and brings pride to our Kachin people. God bless you all. Thank you very much.
