My first thought when I learned I was awarded this scholarship

My first thought when I learned I was awarded this scholarship:I was on cloud nice when I learned I was chosen as a scholar at VGU. Moreover, I was very pleased because I am going to learn higher education at Vietnamese German University.

Why I’m interested in trade

Trade is one of the best ways to promote peace among people. This is because trade can create prosperity, job opportunities and education for all walks of life.

What this scholarship opportunity means to me

This scholarship is very meaningful for me and my country. Myanmar is currently at a the cross road because Myanmar lived as an isolated country for almost 50 years. As a result, the young generations  of Myanmar, including me, need a good education to participate in the growth of the country.

The international experiences I’m most looking forward to

The world is changing into a village. We surely need to deal with different races and cultural diversity. Soit is a must to look forward to international experiences.

What I’ll bring to my dorm to remind me of home

I brought a picture of our grate leader, Aung San Su Kyi. She is my role model because she has made personal sacrifices for her country and people. She lived under house arrest for almost 20 years. That is why the picture of her reminds me of applying myself for my family and country.

My favorite hobbies and other interests

Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies. I also believe that traveling is a way of fulfilling our knowledge and reducing the stress we encounter in our daily lives. Playing football and watching football matches is very fascinating for me. I love them very much.

My proudest achievement so far in life

Winning the Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship for Global Production and Engineering Management, MA in Vietnamese-German University is my proudest achievement so far.

The largest obstacle I’ve overcome so far in life

The education system in Myanmar has been intentionally destroyed by the military junta. So, I suffered after I graduated. There are a handful of people who recognize us as an educated people. Surviving to get a good education system is the largest hurdle that I have overcome so far.

My future goals and aspirations

I wish to work in the production industry as a skilled engineer as well as a good manager.

How I plan to give back and help others

I want to share my valuable knowledge to those who are in need. Moreover, I wish to involve in the implementation of my country.

Story about Nyi Nyi Han

I have a bachelor’s of engineering, majoring in textiles in 2011. I sorrowfully learned the degree I earned is not recognized internationally. So, I have always had a dream to earn a good education in foreign university. The current scholarship I have is very meaningful to me. This is a good chance to open the door of my dream.
