Tsering (Portland, OR)

“Life was hard in Tibet because of civil unrest, so I fled to Nepal and sought asylum. I was a refugee for many years until my daughter, who lived in the US, sponsored me to live in America. I didn’t know any English and never traveled outside of Asia, so I was pretty scared to fly alone. My daughter wasn’t able to accompany me, so her friends traveled to Nepal to ensure my safe journey to my new home.”
