Sarmoo Kwee, Youth Development Coordinator
Sarmoo Kwee was born in Burma and moved to Thailand when she was 13 years old. In 2005, she moved to a refugee camp and applied for the resettlement program. She moved to the United States in 2006. She started attending high school and graduated from Leap High School in 2009.
After she graduated, she started working with Hmong Women’s Association of Minnesota as case manager where she gained experience working in the community. In 2010, she started a new career as a Karen interpreter in medical field.
Through this job, she realized that a lot of Karen families still have difficult lives and many issues that need assistance. This motivated her to join KOM as a Youth Development Coordinator in April 2017. She is looking forward to working with the Karen community closely.
