For me Digital Story Telling was a bit of challenge and a new concept. I am thankful to all the mentors and friends for being very patient with me. I feel so happy that I got a new experience and learned many things. I hope to support other young girls like me by sharing my learnings.

Have patience and never give up

My story is about turning sadness into power. It is about overcoming sorrow by taking on challenges in my life. At a time when I had little hope I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to climb a mountain but people said “Women can’t do that! Women must stay inside!" But with support from EWN, I did it. By telling my story I want to show how we can do anything we set our minds to. If we really want, we can do anything! We can! Have patience and never give up!
