Youth Journalism Internatioanl alum Geraldine Soon of Singapore traveled to her grandfather's homeland of Myanmar as a tourist a couple years ago and wrote an interesting piece about it for us.
With the tiny, impoverished and military-controlled nation in the news after more violence followed its recent elections, it's a good time to take a look at the account that Geraldine offered, along with the beautiful photos she took there.
She has an accompanying piece about the failure of Myanmar's military junta to accept help in the wake of a devastating cyclone. She's pictured below with a boy she met on her trip. Read about him and more at this link: http://tinyurl.com/35jhvzo
