Yangchen Dolma Tamang started grade 10 at Shawnigan Lake School in Victoria, BC.
See the happy smile? It took more than six months to get her study permit. She is loving her new school and busy making new friends.
Yangchen Dolma Tamang is our fourth SMD student starting at Shawnigan Lake School on beautiful Vancouver Island in Canada. She is receiving the Himalayan Leadership Award, created in honour of our first three students who had a chance to attend Shawnigan since 2016.
