Sport Coach From Kachin Land
My name is Ting Myaw, I belong to one of the sub tribes of kachin known as Lachid. I live in Myitkyina, the northern part of Myanmar where there is a civil war. I am currently working at Girl Determined as a lead coach. My first journey of sport began when I was in my first year of university. But, I had to go through the hardest, hopeless and depressing moment while I was suffering knee injuries after playing sports for 3 years. I surely believe that every girl is able to play sports. I realised the importance of leadership skills through playing sports. Currently, I have been working with girls who are aged between 12-18 living in the camp and outside from the camp as a coach. I love my job. I want to contribute to creating positive change through sports.
