Thunt Htut Oo: A Burmese Man in South Korea

Today I’m very excited to introduce you to a wonderful man, Thunt Htut Ooh. This business professor from Rangoon, Burma came to Seoul, South Korea in 2008 as a simple factory worker, and in the 5 years since coming here he’s received two Master’s degrees, created for himself a profession in education, and started his own international business—all while financially supporting his sister through medical school. He is truly an inspiration, and I hope you enjoy learning not only about his journey of self-growth, but about his views on living abroad in South Korea. Enjoy!
