Deih Sian was born in Myanmar, where she lived with her maternal grandparents. At the age of eight, she moved to Savannah, GA to unite with her father. When she came to the U.S., she started second grade not knowing a single English word. During that summer she worked hard to learn to write and read in English. While learning English, she relentlessly continued to practice my native language because it’s something that she values and allows her to be able to communicate with family back her. Living in a city, where her family is the only Zomi, it influenced her to perpetually speak to her siblings in their native language. She is currently an undergraduate student at Agnes Scott College majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. She is also on the Pre-Med track as she wants to pursue a career in the medical field. With the unprecedented pandemic, she was not able to shadow physicians. However, she was able to conduct a virtual stem internship, where she learned the importance of research experience and writing research papers.
