War War Hlaing
Confident, focused and elegant, Myanmar Muslim Yi Yi Myint divides her time between looking after her mother, teaching Arabic and practicing her faith. An accomplished Karate practitioner to boot, this charming thirty-six year old single woman would seem to have it all –except perhaps for the right marital partner.

Engineering graduate War War Hlaing’s family are middle-class Myanmar Muslims. When she’s not helping out at the family’s market stall, she works as a development volunteer teaching life skills or staging plays with Myanmar interfaith peace group IYCAP. She hopes that her first short documentary Koran and Karate will help change prevailing prejudices about Muslims in Myanmar today.
