I am an exile seeking abode in where I go. I call home to the places where I land and family to the friends - as I am home away from home and separated from my family due to the precarious political situation of my country - Tibet.
Thank you for showing your interest in my website. To those of you, who are interested to know little more about me, Yewang is the fusion of first two letters of my name - Yeshi Wangmo. Strong deer as the animal deer is something I associate closely. I was told that I was a deer in my previous life - which may sound absurd to many of you who doesn’t believe in life after death. As a buddhist, this is somewhat believably normal to me.
I was born in Tibet. As a small child, I dreamt of going to school but never got the opportunity. I vividly remember my childhood as grazing yaks on the mountains, and being blown away by the harsh winds which now I reminisce as a distant beautiful adventure, often I share it to friends as a light joke.
At very young age as a child, to fulfil my desire to get a decent education, I escaped to India, leaving behind my family, friends, country and everything that knew that far. It was in the year 1999, we first fled from our home - we were caught by the Chinese police and imprisoned for several weeks. Luckily, when we made the second attempt, travelled only through nights and hiding at day time at every possible way, we finally made to Nepal. The dangerous journey over arduous Himalaya took almost a month.
After arriving to India, I lost connection with my family for years since there was no easy phone or electronic facilities then, and where I came from is one of the remotest place. What could be harder than losing family and separation, it was unimaginably hard for me initially. Gradually, my school became my home and only family.
Today, by profession, I am registered nurse. Apart from my study, I have always been keen on becoming someone who could help people in their worst situation, when they are in dire need or when they are sick. I take great pride and responsibility in this profession, as I lost my father to an undiagnosed/ unknown disease at a very early age. That pain over the years pushed me to work harder and provide best help to those who come across my way.
Apart from Nursing, I take great interest in yoga and photography. Recently, I had the opportunity to complete a course on “Yoga Instruction”. I can now humbly say ’I am a certified yoga instructor’. I believe learning never stops, the more you learn, the more you realise that you know very little and get even more curious. I also love reading and travelling. I intend to share some of these experiences through this blog as a source of motivation and inspiration.
