Aung San Suu Kyi Age: 65 Occupation: Burmese dissident, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has graced the cover of this magazine many times for her courageous — and lonely — struggle against the military junta that kept her under house arrest for years. Her struggle against the country's brutal regime has made Suu Kyi, the daughter of Burma's great nationalist hero, into an icon of democracy and won her great popularity and admiration abroad. Yet at home, though now released from her house arrest, she faces a defining moment: Can the Burmese opposition, embattled and divided, really bring change to a country ruthlessly run by the generals?
“Saints, it has been said, are the sinners who go on trying. So free men and women are the oppressed who go on trying and who in the process make themselves fit to bear the responsibilities and uphold the disciplines which will maintain a free society.” ― Aung San Suu Kyi
