Win was born and grew up in Myanmar (also known as Burma). He lived through the tail end of Myanmar's decades-long military dictatorship and witnessed the country's transition to quasi-democracy in 2011. Myanmar's mobile connectivity revolution in late 2013 inspired him to contribute to the development of the country's tech and innovation. He is a survivor of the 2021 military coup, a former public figure, and a YSEALI alumnus by the U.S. Department of State. Currently, he is pursuing Data Science for Public Policy at Georgetown University as a McCourt Scholar. Win is passionate about Human Rights, U.S. national interests, and censorship-resistant monetary systems. Since he came from a relatively little-known country and had first-hand experience with the invisible ceiling in the United States, he firmly believes that Bitcoin will unshackle refugees and immigrants from systemic visible and invisible barriers.
