Ogyen Tsomo Tamang
Ogyen comes to us from Bansbari village where she lives with her grandmother, mother and younger brother. Her father left the family a few years ago to search for work in Kathmandu, and since then settled on his own in Kathmandu.
Without her father around, her family is solely reliant on her mother for their income. Ogyen considered quitting school in order to reduce the burden on her mother, but is thankful that due to this scholarship, she will be able to continue her studies at Sikharapur School.
She is very determined to do well in school, and has aspirations to go even further with her studies once she graduates. Her favorite subject is English, and she has ambitions of becoming a doctor someday.
