she was documented as an "illegal immigrant", she sought protection 
from the United States. She applied for refugee status at the U.S 
Embassy in Bangkok and was approved. She arrived in Washington, D.C 
in 1990. Ohmar earned a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Simon's 
Rock College in Massachussets in May, 1994 and then returned to
