Aunty Sue was born in Nyaung Shwe, Southern Shan State where Myanmar’s most renowned tourist attraction, Inle Lake, is located. Coming from a rural family, her childhood days were full, not with flowers and butterflies, but with obstacles and thorns that made her life harder. Nonetheless, her father, who was not educated but had a warm heart, was indeed a role model for her. He loved to befriend and take care of everyone around him, especially children, whom he regarded as the future of his community, and also foreigners who rarely visited Myanmar at that time because of unstable political situations in the country. He always invited foreigners to come and have an organic meal at his farm generously.
