Dawa Drolma was born in a Tibetan community the same year her family's business went bankrupt. With hefty tuition bills to pay for their older children, Dawa's parents sent her away. Dawa was passed around from relative to relative, always struggling to find a place where she belonged. But Dawa did find something that kept her grounded - school. Dawa found solace in her studies and in learning about traditional Tibetan music, which is quickly disappearing from her homeland.
