Circumstances compelled to grow

Circumstances compelled to grow

The pursuit of education required me stay in boarding schools for most part of my educational journey. Having to manage finances, do laundry and discipline oneself were huge tasks but these compelled me to grow. My mother would come with packed lunch every Sunday during my four years study at Gyalposhing, a three-hour walk (one way) from my village Drepung.
