“Now, photos left as remembrance. The one who is wearing a red armband and holding a flag is me. At that time, I was just 15. It is the time I was learning make-up and hairdressing art. At that time, all the make-up artists around the country had participated the event and so being a youth, I also took part in the event, holding flag in front of the group. I didn’t know much just like elder people but I thought I should also join the event
as it was an event that people demanded to change a regime,” continued make-up Khin San Win.
