Mingalarbar to all Burmese freshmen, undergrads, post-grads, alumni of NUS!
I've added everyone to this group to help u
s advise on this little project by me and Hnin Aye Aye Aung.
If you all have noticed, there is no representative of Burma under NUS International Relations Committee. For the past International Fairs and International Student Nights organized by IRC as InFusion, there were no Burmese Booths or performances so far. Please do correct me if I am wrong.
Thus, we were thinking, starting from this year, we can participate in InFusion as a Burmese society as well. We can display our age-old traditions and cultures at the International Fair booth and maybe even put up some performances at InFusion, that is if we have enough manpower of course. :) But I've heard that even Sri Lankans do participate in those events even though they have only one or two students admitted to NUS every year. I believe that even though we might contribute to only a very little percentage of the entire NUS population, we must let the whole NUS community know that we're here.
Well, if you want to go on a bit further, I've talked to the IRC president about it recently, and he extended his invitation to form our very own Burmese Society under IRC itself! I know SMU has done it quite recently and I'm so envious that they're doing so many great things, showcasing the Burmese Culture and Dance around the school. So why don't we do the same?
Dear seniors and fellow students, being young and inexperienced as we are, we are not able to handle such huge projects on our own. We definitely do need your help, and would be grateful if you can lend a hand, or give us opinions, suggestions, or even criticize. We need all the help we can get from everyone.
I know this entire process will not be easy. But this is what I want to achieve during my NUS life. As Eleanor Roosevelt once said "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams". I have a dream now. Won't you be a part in it?
Kyay zue tin bar dal shin. :))
