My Path Leads to Tibet: As Seen on Oprahby Sabriye Tenberken
Synopses & Reviews
Sabriye lost her sight at the age of twelve, and had promised herself not to allow her blindness to turn her into an invalid. When she learned that, in Tibet, many blind children were shunned by society, abandoned and left to their own devices, she decided to journey there to help them... She devised a Tibetan Braille alphabet and opened the first school for the blind in Lhasa. That school is now an institution for visually impaired people of all ages. Sabriye shares the inspiring story of how she shone an unlikely light in a dark place.
