Hello and Welcome!

I'm Don Nuam, a Tulsan with a deep passion for community service and a strong desire to impact our county positively. While I may not have traditional experience in the role of County Clerk, what I lack in experience, I make up for in enthusiasm, dedication, and a fresh perspective.

I was born in Tedim, Chin State, Myanmar, and lived there until I turned nine, witnessing firsthand the grip of military rule on my country. Growing up under such conditions made me deeply understand the importance of democracy. Inspired by this understanding, I was driven to advocate for democratic values and run for office to bring positive change to my community and beyond.

After my family immigrated to the United States, we initially settled in Florida for ten months before eventually relocating to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2008. Tulsa has been my home ever since, and it's where I've put down roots and become an active member of the community. I attended and graduated from Jenks Public Schools before pursuing higher education at the University of Oklahoma, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Currently, I am pursuing my Master's degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University. My educational background in psychology has provided me with valuable insights into human behavior and decision-making processes, which are essential skills for understanding and serving the diverse needs of our community.

These days, my focus is on various community engagements, particularly within Burmese circles. In 2023, I played a key role in founding the Mingalar Myanmar Alliance, a nonprofit aimed at supporting Burmese diasporas in Oklahoma. Currently, I serve as the president of its board. Additionally, I'm actively involved in a national Burmese diaspora youth group, which led to my participation in a panel at the Association of Asian American Studies conference in Seattle, Washington, in April 2024. I also dedicate much of my time to Far East Mission Church, a local Burmese church located right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

As an Asian American woman, I bring a unique cultural perspective to the table—one that values collaboration, diversity, and innovation. I understand the importance of representation in leadership roles. I am dedicated to ensuring that all voices are heard and all communities are represented in the decisions that affect our county.

I look forward to serving as your Tulsa County Clerk!
