She talks about how she finally got to shooting for a film. In fact, she had been planning with Director U Thein Han (ဒါရိုက္တာသိန္းဟန္) for a long time to make a movie together. But the process that took a long time was trying to select a film that would be suitable for her. Now, she can confidently say that this debut film she chose is indeed very fitting for her.

Writing is her initial hobby, and going towards acting as a second life step has given her attempt plenty of challenges. She admits that in the world of acting, she is a person who knows absolutely nothing and has no experience. It is true that she has visited a lot of film sets before. But those visits were made as a writer in order to supervise the script and story of the film. The acting part was barely noticed, earning just a mere glance from her. Admittedly, there are still many things she does not yet understand, and a lot that she is still not experienced in. At present, she considers director U Thein Han and actor Khant Si Thu (ခန္႔စည္သူ) as her first ever teachers in the profession. They patiently explain and instruct her in the things she does not yet know. As a co-star, Khant Si Thu is willing to take her by the hand in order to teach her the ropes. She says she has gotten a lot of knowledge from him.

Currently, by the suggestion of Director Wine (ဒါရိုက္တာဝိုင္း), she is taking performance art training from teacher U Oone Khine. Performance art is a lot deeper and more difficult than she had thought. Also, because she had no prior interest or passion in acting, when she became an actor, she felt her lack of commitment to her role made her rather weak and out of place in terms of action, gestures, and speech delivery. She also announces that her entry into the acting world does not mean she will be abandoning her initial line of work; writing. She plans to still maintain herself as a writer to the best of her ability and keep on working hard in creating her own stories. In the same way, she will give the same hard work to her second footstep in profession; acting.
