Steele is a second-year graduate student in the MSFS program at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. Over the summer, he worked in Yangon, Myanmar with Koe Koe Tech, a health tech startup developing technologies and apps to expand access to healthcare in rural Myanmar.
Prior to returning to grad school, he worked for several years in international development and public health, including work as the communications lead for a nonprofit working to end preventable blindness.
He is a published photographer and holds a BA in Politics from Washington & Lee University.
"Myanmar in many ways is a study in contrasts. Tradition vs modernity, young vs old, soaring urban rents vs widespread rural poverty," says MSFS graduate student Steele Burrow, who has spent the summer in Yangon, working for @koekoetech, a health tech startup expanding access to healthcare in rural Myanmar. Steele shared these photos of members of the iconic Kayan Tribe, who are famous for their golden neck rings and remarkable weavings. Only about 1,500 still follow this traditional practice. #SummerSFS
