A Girl’s Life

Posted in Human issues stories, inspirations on March 15, 2008 by boychick1

A Girl’s Life …a very inspiring video. Click HERE to watch the short film online. When I get caught up in some drama of feeling sorry for myself — I think about stories like this one. How could I tell a girl in Nepal that I have a hard time (or difficult life).

“Once upon a time there was a girl whose name was Sabina Timilsina…”

So begins “A Girl’s Life” in the sing-song broken English of a 9-year-old who lives in a village outside Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. It’s the voice of a girl narrating her own life. A girl with a mother, a father and a brother. A girl who rises at dawn, brushes her teeth, and goes to school. A girl who likes to play volleyball and badminton, but most of all loves to read.
