This is a graphic story of a Tibetan girl, me. As she is growing as a Tibetan young woman, her consciousness of caring about her own people and culture become stronger. She thinks that she is the trailblazer of positive changes in her community. She is, just like every individual Tibetan, haunted by 122 Tibetan self-immolations, and that deeply wounds her and Tibetans every where. So, this is a simple story of her own as a girl, not valued in her community because of culturally gender preferences. She is challenging and breaking the perceptions of women in her community by struggling to step out and doing something meaningful. As an individual story, her story represents Tibetans and their life challenges.
