Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to Visit the US in September

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will visit the US in September to accept the Global Citizens Award from Atlantic Council.  A representative from Atlantic Council had told VOA Burmese that Daw Suu will accept this award ” in person”. This will be the first time she will be coming to the US since working for the United Nations in the 1980’s.

In June, Daw Suu traveled across Europe for more than two weeks, meeting with state leaders and government officials. My editor, Khin Soe Win and I followed her around to different countries and cities as she accepted the prizes and made great speeches. You can watch more of Khin Soe Win’s videos on a later post.

Here are some of the pictures that we had taken in Europe while covering Daw Suu’s trip. This trip was personal for me as I had gotten to meet Burma’s ” heroine”.
















VOA was in Oslo, Norway to cover Daw Suu’s Nobel Peace Prize Speech:
