Saw Kyaw from Myanmar Proud of his Completion Certificate

“Wait me” “Wait me”,  says Saw Kyaw every week as he wants to be picked up for Migros Aid English Club, often yelling it across the parking lot.    He is eager to come to work on his English but maybe more interested in the community that has developed and a sense of belonging.  He is always showing photos from his phone of his parents and sister who are still back in Myanmar.

Every week he has his backpack and pulls out his framed certificate to put on the table. Always with a smile,  he is so very proud of his completion of a three-month course that he finished in 2012 at his refugee camp in Thailand.  He has been in America for about two years and is working hard to learn English. We do not know all of his story but I am sure it is fascinating and he has for sure inspired many others!
