Chin Person of the Year Announcement: 2021 has been an unlikely year for many of us. From the Covid-19 pandemic to the political turmoil in our native land, Burma, we experienced unprecedented times. Likewise, choosing the CYONA Chin Person of the Year has been unlike previous years.
Our committee had a difficult task as we realized that there are many individuals and organizations deserving of this recognition this year. The challenging events brought many individuals and organizations who stepped up to help their fellow brothers and sisters all over the world.
After considering inputs from the public and local CYO chapters’ leaders, the committee picked CDF as 2021 Chin Person of the Year. We are reminded of the sacrifices of so many CDF members, many of whom have given the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives for Chin people.
Just as our Chin forefathers took up arms against the British invaders, ordinary Chin civilians fought and continue to fight the Burmese invaders. As one of the founders of the Union of Burma, Chin people have a sacred duty to defend our people and land against domestic and foreign enemies. CYONA is proud of all CDF members and congratulates CDF members as 2021 Chin Person of the Year.
