Mu Hpare had attended the Ethnic Minorities of Burma Advocacy Cultural Awareness (EMBARC) Event in 2014 where she had performed Traditional Kayan Cultural Singing and Dancing. The Event showcased the Organization’s continued support of the Iowan Myanmar (Burmese) Immigrant, typically Refugees. Mu Hpare was a Refugee from Myanmar after having fled a war-torn country as a child to Thailand. Mu Hpare, whose culture is Kayan, had performed a near impossible feat by coming from an environment of little opportunity and relentlessly pushed her way onward toward her now realized goal of being the CEO of her own company, Song Birds International, LLC, in the Land of Plenty, the United States. She can now offer her services of Interpretation and Translation to others, so that, everyone may realize their dreams, both Refugee and Company.
MU and the Vanishing World is a Movie Teaser about a documentary that started in 2008 following her life as a Myanmar Refugee to date. Production by Jessica W. Leung & Paco Beltran should be completed within the near future.Read story
