Say's earliest memory is of the undeveloped forest along the border of Kayah State (Burma) and Thailand. This is where her family lived while hiding from the military-led government of Myanmar. When she was one year old her family left the forest for a refugee camp in Thailand. After living in the camp for 15 years, Say, along with her parents, grandmother, and 4 younger siblings were given refugee status and moved to the US. Resettled in a rough neighborhood in North St. Louis, life has not been easy since the family's arrival, but they are striving to survive and thrive in their new home. Say has been part of the Forai Jewelry Team since 2014. Look for her at future festivals demonstrating her jewelry-making skills!
