"Don't Stop When You Are Tired, Stop When You Are Done."

Trekking Guide, Empowering Women of Nepal

Digital story telling was very challenging for me to work fist time in computer. This story reminds me of my past life and I become more emotional. It was the first time making my own story. I was not sure to tell all my story! But at the end I felt very proud and confident with my life story. I got new experiences and I learned many things from this workshop. Of course I will share my experience with other people and I am very thankful to all mentors and friends for being a kind help to me.

Don't stop when you are tired, stop when you are done!

My story tells about how the women can deal with many different obstacles and challenges. And if women can get any opportunity they can do anything as a man. At the beginning of my job, our society and the nature of the work was challenging for me. Many male guides used to tell me, "Can you fo this job? This job is not for women and women cannot handle this job." Whatever they were saying I did not listen and I did not stop. I was determined and only focused on my job and on my way. So I believe that "don't stop when you are tired, stop when you are done."
