Suu Kyi lets on that she's a light sleeper
WASHINGTON (AP) - Worrying about military rule doesn't keep Myanmar's democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi up at night, but just a little bit of noise does.
Ms Suu Kyi offered a rare glimpse into her personal side on 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-old Nobel peace laureate up at night.
Ms Suu Kyi confided that she is a very light sleeper. 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.
