My name is Thar Htoo and my nickname is Maung Yin Htwe. I’m a Myanmar national and I’m 24 years old currently studying my final year in Education major. I’m an individual born with Microtia (right side) which is underdeveloped ear and suffered from stroke in my right side face. Despite that, I have a dream that is to be an artist especially to become a male deformity model in the theme of deformity or disabled. It’s my favorite hobby as well as career.
Currently, I’m jumping into photography world and starting to get experience as a photographer (newbie). However, I love to be a famous than a photographer. So need much assistance to get a stage name. The reason why I love to become a male deformity is because, I want to inspire other who are having difficulties about their looks and who they are no matter people with abled or disabled. I want to set myself as an example for those who are suffering as me. And to let them know there is possibility in things that you want to achieve to do it.
I have done a couple photo shootings as a model in portrait photography and some artistic shots. Besides, I’m also working a newbie photographer to get as many experiences as possible for me.
All in all, I like being myself to be seen as an artist and if possible public figure one day in modeling world. This is to apply for me to become a male model and I’m sure there is a room for me to grow, achieves, and make my most desired dream to become true. Thanks in advance.
