In his own words: why volunteer for CEU?
Myanmar, my country, is now at crossroads of democratic transition. I would like to build a strong CEU alumni network at home promoting democratic values such as freedom of speech, freedom of association and academic freedom. I strongly believe a future CEU Myanmar alumni network will work for realizing these values which are at the very core of our university years at CEU.
