I had a classmate from Myanmar who received Taiwan government scholarships to study in Taiwan when I was a freshman.

My college has a tradition, students will drew lots to decide which classmate is your study partner.

My study partner was just her.

I thought that my family was too impoverished to be true, but what she fared was even more miserable than me.

Her father borrowed money from illegal gang to cover her airfare to Taiwan but was delinquent.

In order to help her family, all my classmates donated some money to tidy her father over.

I didn't know how lucky I was until I knew her life in Myanmar.
