SPD Through the Eyes of our Alumni by Saw Thein Soe

Hello everyone, let’s get to know more about our SPD programme though my eyes as one of the alumni of the SPD international programme.

I am Saw Thein Soe, a former student of SPD (Social Policy and Development) from the years 2017-2021. I am from Myanmar.

After graduating from SPD, it took me a while to get a job due to the pandemic, documentation issues and the coup d’état in my country. However, while I was searching for a long-term job, I engaged in translation and transcription work as a freelancer. Fortunately, I got to work with several individual contractors and it was an amazing experience.
Currently, I am working at Digiserve Cooperation Co.,Ltd as a content moderator where I mainly have to deal with social media policies. Working at this company, I come across numerous social issues which can severely bring a negative impact to society and people. Witnessing these kind of issues help me realize the value of learning social policies and why it is essential for a major such as SPD to exist for a better society. I felt really happy and proud that I was a student at SPD and able to learn all those useful lessons which are helping me overcome challenges and difficulties at my workplace.
Last but not least, SPD is a place which makes you feel at home. If anyone out there is looking for a wonderful experience as a student, I highly recommend joining SPD because I believe SPD can help equip you with many skills and knowledge that you can use to create social changes.
Thank you SPD and everyone involved.
