Ingjin’s early life was a myriad of trials; she grew up in a broken, low income, & narrow minded family in a military ruled country; Myanmar. Consequentially she was afforded very little opportunities, but she took full advantage of the ones she was given.
Her parents divorced when Ingjin was five, shortly after her younger brother was born, they have never known their father. She was raised & supported by her Mother in her Grandparents house, with four extended families under one roof.
Ingjin believes she is the reflection of the people that helped her in her life; her teachers, grandparents, step father, mother, & the people who have been very supportive and believing in her. Ingjin’s mother worked tirelessly so that she & her brother could go to school. Ingjin credits her mother’s daily sacrifices for giving her the determination to chase her dreams. She strives everyday to become the educated, independent, & strong woman that her mother wanted to see her become.
Sadly, her mother died from Breast Cancer one week apart from her step fathers death... he died from a second Stroke in the same year. They both passed the year after Ingjin left her home country of Myanmar, she never saw them again.
