WASHINGTON (AP) — Worrying about military rule doesn't keep Myanmar's democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi (ahng sahn soo chee) up at night, but just a little bit of noise does.
Suu Kyi offered a rare glimpse into her personal side Thursday when she took questions and offered advice to young human rights activists in Washington.
One activist asked what challenges and problems keep the 67-year Nobel peace laureate up at night.
She confided that she finds it difficult to sleep. She said every little noise disturbs her, but serious issues — of which the former prisoner has encountered many during two decades of political upheaval in Myanmar — usually don't.
She said she's learned that, in time, even what looks like the most horrible event in your life will appear less serious.
