Sarita Lama is from Kopugaun Village, which is one of the more remote villages from central Pharping. She has fives sisters, and altogether there are nine people living in her house. Sadly for Sarita and her sisters, their father left the family to remarry and move away. Sarita is currently living with an aunt in Kathmandu, but because of this scholarship she is back home to continue her studies.
She is a hard working student who has plans of becoming a nurse one day to help her sisters and family.
Thanks to the scholarship, Sarita is able to be back home to continue school
