Hi! My name is Youngha, and I’m 18 years old. My family lives in Nangqian County. I have three siblings, and I’m the second youngest child in the family. My oldest brother is now attending college after he graduated from Cixing school. Both my sister and I are currently attending the Cixing school, and my brother is studying at the county middle school. My father passed away when I was in the 6th grade. My mom is now working as a janitor in the county Bureau of Agriculture. Although she never received any formal education, my mom knows the value of a good education, and she works tirelessly to support me and all my siblings to go to school. Our family's main source of income is foraging the yartsa gunbu herb and mom doing janitorial work. After graduating from the county middle school, my sister and I came to Cixing School, where we can enjoy free education. We don’t want to put any additional stress on the family and our mom. My goal is to get into college as a Tibetan medicine major in three years and become a doctor after graduation. I want a stable source of income, which would help me take good care of my mother.
