Thinn is a young woman from Myanmar who has benefited from Wedu's education funding (FISAs) thanks to your help. This is her story.
After graduating from Yangon University with a Bachelor's degree in International Relations, Rising Star Thinn worked for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and volunteered in several community projects. These experiences opened her eyes to the realities faced by Burmese people living in poverty due to a lack of access to livelihood and economic opportunities. Since then, she has committed to work towards reducing inequality in Myanmar by becoming a Developmental Economist focused on livelihood projects in underserved areas.
To achieve this goal, she is pursuing a master's degree in Applied Economics and accessing flexible education financing through a FISA enabled her to do this on her own timeline rather than deferring her goal. Thinn has continued receiving mentoring at Wedu to navigate her return to academia.
Thinn is currently pursuing her Master's degree in Applied Economics at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. She said, "Without a FISA, I would face financial incapabilities to study for a Master’s degree and achieve my goals. I now have support to pursue another degree, which will lead to a major improvement for my professional development in the future."
