We provided pictures for others to see and more likely to understand, or to make the powerpoint slide appear more interesting.
In this project, we did do a lot of research in the internet, which
allow us to learn from the information. We didn’t only learn more about Aung San Suu Kyi, we also learn more about human rights and democracy.
Confidence-building is not something that can go on forever.
If it goes on forever then
it becomes counterproductive.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's Victory Speech (English)
HKCCCU Logos Academy
We will surely get to our destination if we join hands.
“You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right.”
In 26-8-1988, Aung San Suu Kyi have a speech in front of nearly a million people. Before she gave the speech, the government spread rumors about killing her, but she was not threatened by the impact.
Although she did not like politics, she said she cannot give up halfway. Her impassioned impressed all the people who came to the convocation
September 27, 1988, Aung San Suu Kyi formed the National Democratic Alliance and served as chairman and secretary. The National Democratic Alliance quickly grow and become the largest opposition in Burma
The National Democratic Alliance fight for the democracy of the country can make more people care for the injustice election of Burma .
Areas to improve
We could have managed our time better, we have spent a lot of time to decide which role model we wanted to introduce. And as we finished choosing, we didn’t have much time left. Therefore, we rushed to do our power point and poster.
Although we found a lot of information from different websites, we only relied on the internet. As we only used one method to do the research, the information maybe a bit less interesting.
We did prepare pictures for the slides to make the powerpoint look better, it would be better if we used more to make it more interesting.
Inspiration of the above speeches
She told us to stay strong and taught us how to face the world as if it’s not cruel, she provided equality for her people, which gives us a feeling that we are one, there are no two different people and everyone is unique.
At the same time, she encouraged us to help those in need, instead of being selfish and neglect, we need to at least show some respect to people whom we claim as weak, otherwise we are the one who is actually weak.
Lastly, she told us not to stress ourselves out, as she said if it goes on forever it becomes counterproductive, it lets us know our limitations
What we have learned from her
She stand out and fight for others. And she gives us the courage to do something for others. In nowadays, many people including us only thought for ourselves. Even when we said we care, we will not do anything. People always use “we don’t have the ability ” as excuse , but she makes us understand that even our power is small, we can influence other people. So that many power can be jointed together and so that we can help other people.
This can help us further explain that it doesn’t matter who we are, even as we claim we are powerless, we all have the ability to change the world, as long as we have the courage to do it, it needs a strong willed and determined personality just like her.
She didn’t give up to fight for freedom even she has been put under house arrest and threaten
She thought for her country in the first place, even she is the trouble, she still care for her country
There is even a movie about her life
