In 1910, a girl named Pyan Nu was born in a simple fishing village in Wakema, Myanmar. She grew up in this poor village. One day, a prince from the Kachin tribe in northern Myanmar visited Wakema and met Pyan Nu. They fell in love and were married. Pyan Nu and the Prince returned to Kachin in northern Myanmar, and she became the Princess of Kachin.
It was an era of war. Overwhelmed by neighboring tribes, the Burmese King was banished to India. Without a Monarch, the country fell into civil chaos. In order to compete for opium fields, the Kachin and Shan peoples fought incessantly. Amidst the backdrop of war, the prince and princess lived seven years together in hiding and had children. During a war between the Kachin and Shan tribes in 1934, the Prince and their children were killed. The pregnant Pyan Nu was escorted to southern Myanmar and she had nowhere to go but back to Wakema, where her parents lived.
In 1935, Pyan Nu's child, a boy, was born in Wakema. The princess lived in this beautiful place, Wakema, missing her deceased husband and her lost children, until her death. The surviving son of Pyan Nu took his family to Hong Kong and then to the United States. This son is Kyaw Lwin, the grandfather of Trenton Gin. Trenton's grandfather worked and studied very hard in his life. He mastered four languages through self-study.
Mr. Trenton Gin learned from his grandfather to never give up, work hard, never stop learning, be kind, be humble, and always give if you can. This is his legacy.
Albert Schweitzer was a theologian, organist, writer, humanitarian, philosopher, and physician. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life". His philosophy was expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, which up to 1958 was situated in French Equatorial Africa, and after this in Gabon.
Trenton Gin has always advocated for racial equality and the protection of human rights. He aspires to become a philosopher like Albert Schweitzer. He hopes to do his best to fight for human rights and medical resources for the poor and minorities.
