One of the more interesting candidates for Mister Tourism World 2016 is the representative of Myanmar. He is a showbiz personality in his native country – a popular actor and recording artist at that. And during one of our chats, I actually kidded him about the talent he will perform during the competition. He is torn between singing and acting, but I advised him to go for what he does best.
Okkar is actually a good-natured guy who appreciates the warmth and hospitality of people he meets during all his performances out-of-town and even abroad. As part of this blog series, I requested him to make a self-description so that we can get a better appreciation of him as a person. Below is what he said.
My new film titled The Gemini has been released in the United States – New York and Los Angeles in particular – and will be released all over Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia by December.
I want you to know that I am a passionate person, focus-driven and non-judgmental. Laughing is my daily remedy, while babies and puppies make my heart melt anytime. I am a determined hard worker full of positivity. I am a religious person who believes in karma. I also love meeting new friends.
If I were to win Mister Tourism World, I will raise my voice to gain awareness over such issues as sex tourism, child sex abuse and labor, human trafficking and hate crimes. I want to show the world that I have a big heart to share.”
I wish Okkar the best in his upcoming competition here in the Philippines for Mister Tourism World 2016. He may be a big name in his native Myanmar, but has the humility to show everyone that everyone is equal in any challenge that he will face.
See you in Vigan, Okkar! 🙂
