Artisan Spotlight 


am from Bhutan and lived there until I was 14 and had to travel to a refugee camp in Nepal with my family.  After a few years I met my husband and got married. I have two adult sons. We lived in the camp for 21 years. There wasn’t a chance for me to go to school. When I came to the US everything was so new and unique. I’ve been learning English and now I’m working on studying for my citizenship. When first I started working at Welcome I thought it was hard but now it’s getting easier. I love everything about the USA.  Next, I want to learn how to drive. I think I would love it and I could handle emergencies. I hope to learn in the next year.
