Aung San Suu Kyi will speak at Harvard and Yale universities in the US on Thursday, following her private meeting with Burmese President Thein Sein earlier this week in New York City.
Harvard, located in Boston, was organized in 1636 and is one of the US’s most prestigious universities. Yale, organized in 1701, is considered one of its strongest competitors, and is located in New Haven, Connecticut.
Following her speeches, Suu Kyi will travel to San Francisco to speak to the Burmese community prior to traveling to Los Angeles.
Her US tour will end Oct. 3.
