Zin Zin Zin, the second young woman, was just 15 years old when she went to Singapore with high expectations to help her ancestors. One of the people she found was Louis Zung, a member of Myanmar's House of Representatives and creator of a firm named Myanmar Global Manpower Link, the same firm we revealed in 2016, who said he was helping her get a false date of originated.
