I come from Sarlahi, Nepal.
Anita Kushwar (Tamang) is an extrovert in the group, who likes to talk to everyone and express her feelings. The only time you will see her not talking is while she is sleeping. She was born into a family of farmers from Sarlahi district. She has six other siblings and making ends meet for her family was not easy. She grew up in scarcity, her parents couldn’t provide her proper education so she had to give up the school at an early age. In the rural conservative society, girls are regarded as a burden and she too felt that she had to get married at an early age so agreed to get married when she was 18. Now she lives with her husband in a rented room in the outskirts of Kathmandu, they both work hard to make ends meet but due to Anita’s health they have to spend their savings on her regular check-ups because she had heart surgery when she was young.
