NawNaw Dar Khu, who lacks arms, was chosen as the honour-worthy citizen for the month of June by State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who is presenting letters of appreciation to outstanding and/or exemplary citizens regularly each month, it has been learned.
Naw Daw Khu, daughter of a Tatmadaw member, was born with the affliction of having no arms. She is the youngest of five siblings.
Her father is Saw Tha Daw and mother is Naw Phaw Ko. Despite lacking hands the honoured citizen of June exerted her utmost to learn to write with her legs. She passed the promotion examinations yearly up to Grade 9 but had to make a second attempt to finish Grade 10 due to poor health.
Despite the challenges of disability, poverty, poor health and an inability to attend private tuition classes, Naw Daw Khu sat for, and passed, the matriculation examination which this year saw a fail rate of 70 per cent. It was for her exemplary efforts in achieving her personal goals that Naw Daw Khu was chosen by the State Counsellor for the honour.  —GNLM
