Ani Dechen Lhamo

My name is Dechen Lhamo Tamang and I am from Nuwakot district of Nepal. I was born on the 17th of January 2018. I lived with my mom, grandparents, and a younger brother. My mother’s name is Phur Gyalmo Tamang and my little brother’s name is Mingmar Gualpo. He is two years old. I read from nursery to K.G. in my village school. My favorite subjects were Nepali and English when I was in my village school. But now, I can read Tibetan, mathematics and science in my nunnery and I love Tibetan and mathematics the most. I joined Tek Chok Ling nunnery on the 3rd of July 2023 and became a nun on the 6th of July 2023. I also got a new name (Dechen Lhamo) from Rinpoche. I love everything about the nunnery, it is very different from my village. I made many friends too. They are Lodroe, Tsundue, Youden, Tsomo and Karma. I like to be with Urgyen Dolma (5 years old) most of the time because she helps me with Tibetan subjects and plays with me. I want to learn many things in my future and help my mom and my friends.
