Hnin Aung | Burma

Hnin is a young professional originally from Thailand but raised in Myanmar/Burma. Her family moved to the United States when she was 12 years old, and she earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Health from the University of Colorado Denver. With 8 years of experience in community navigation, predominantly within the Burmese community, she’s focused on serving the underprivileged population. Her commitment involves striving to understand and enhance their success through process improvement. She has been actively involved in advocating for essential services and programs that can be challenging for immigrants, such as enrolling children/parents in schools, applying for government benefits, securing meaningful employment, and navigating the healthcare system. Since high school, she has volunteered as an interpreter in the community and currently works as a Freelance Professional Interpreter, alongside her full-time position at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

Outside of work,  she enjoys exploring Denver’s diverse culinary scene in her free time. Additionally, her passion for outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, and snowboarding, allows her to fully appreciate the natural beauty that Colorado, her home, has to offer.
