Dah Doh was born and raised Burma, a country with a lot of mountains. In a country where there was war and struggle, Dah Doh and her family had to move to the Thailand refugee camp. She grew up in the Thailand refugee camp and finished her college there. Dah Doh was confident, calm and quiet girl. Dah Doh Moo is a strong, hard-working, intelligent woman, who is not afraid to tell everyone what she is really thinking. She is average short with black hair and brown eyes and her age is around forty. There are three things that I want to point out from Dah Doh, her childhood, her family and her personality.
She was born in Burma where the conflict things are happening. When she was 1.5 years old, she was recovering from surgery which was really painful for her. She was lying on a soft bed at the hospital, with her bed being the first one to the right as people walk through the door. She was crying so loud for her mom. The nurse opened the door and threatened that if she didn’t stop crying, her mom wouldn’t visit. She started going to school when she was four. At the first day of school, she came home after a full day of meeting and learning new names/faces. Having to take a nap on the cold wood floor on a warm blanket, her mother asking her how her day had gone. She told her it was terrible and that she didn't want to go back. Her mom asked her why and she said, "They didn't teach me how to read and that's why I went. So if they can't teach me that why should I go back?" Needless to say a long discussion ensued about how one learns to read. When she was in fourth grade, she has her favorite teacher named Blay Paw. Blay Paw was honestly interested in making sure her students made it into the college of their choice, and she was always available to chat about anything. She also had each of her student written a short letter to themselves, which she mailed five years later. The fact that someone cared enough to hang on to letters for five years and then make sure they got to the recipients still amazes Dah Doh. It showed how much she truly cared about more than just her subject. While her live in Burma she used to play out in the autumn in big puddles and piles of dry yellow leaves, to be called in for tea and have something like buttered crumpets.
Dah Doh takes a good care of her disable husband and also being a good role molde for her three kids. She's the kind of person who has thoughtful discussions about which day she would most want to have her home clean by, the kind of mother who always has time for her family, and the kind of community leader who has a seat on the board of every major project. She always cooks delicious food before the night to prepare for her family breakfast. Her husband became disabled a after car accident. She cared for him 24/7 for approximately the first 2 month and
