[Taiwan Immigrants’ Global News Network] Yang Wanli (楊萬利), a Myanmar native who moved to Taiwan with her family when she was ten years old, has hazy memories of growing up in her own country. Yang did not rediscover and study the culture of her hometown in Myanmar until she knew about "Brilliant Tim Bookstore. Now Yang and several young people form the "Mingalar par"(緬甸街) team. In addition to publishing paper publications, they also occasionally guide bookstore customers in the Myanmar community on Huaxin Street (Burma Street).
