Sharmila Tamang is proud to say that she is the first girl to complete the SLC from the Tamang community in her area. From a remote area of Lalitpur, she used to walk an hour to get to school every day. She lived with her mother and her grandparents, who earn their living through subsistence farming.
She completed her schooling from Shree Buddha School with some support for school expenses from a local NGO. She is now enrolled in V.S. Niketan in Management faculty.
