And, most important, how can her determination to speak out for what is right still be so strong?
You’ll be hearing a lot more about Zin Mar Aung in the days and weeks to come – this is your chance to learn about this remarkable young woman now. You’ll want to listen closely as she tells her harrowing story about her life in Burma, and about what’s in her future.
