  • “I have come to San Francisco in the right way—with flowers in my hair,” Suu Kyi said to an audience of almost 5,000 which included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, former Secretary of State George Schultz, and members of the USF and members of the USF and Burmese communities.

    Suu Kyi’s visit marked a long-awaited return to the US after a 40-year lapse during which her struggle, hardships and efforts made her a symbol of Burmese struggle for democracy.

    Suu Kyi is the 13th Nobel laureate to visit the university, a distinguished group that includes Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the 14th Dalai Lama.

    See footage from her visit to the University of San Francisco.
