Lodoe Wangmo was born in Tibet. She grew up in a remote village in Tibet. Most of the clothes they wore were in the village was hand stitched and she learned to do that from the elders.
In the early 90s, she moved to India so that she could have the freedom to practice her religion freely, to have the basic human rights and to have the privilege to meet H.H the Dalai Lama and hear his teachings.
“I met my husband in India and we had two children together. They grew up in India and sadly, they never got chance to see their true home”.
While I was in India, I used to do stitching, knitting, and tried learning new techniques. I realised that my interests and passion were still alive.
In 2016, we moved to Australia hoping for a better livelihood and better future for my son and daughter. But moving in this country has been a very challenging as I never had the privilege of going to school and English not being my father tongue.
Then I got engaged with Sisterworks and my life has been slight better since then. I got back in to stitching and learning new things from people there from Sisterworks.”
