Tashi Detso was born on July 30th, 1973 in the village of Dague Chukmo, Northern Tibet. Tashi is also from a nomadic family and although she is female, like most nomadic girls (and boys) Tashi spent much time in her early years herding livestock (yaks). She also had the additional duties of caring for her parents, both of whom were somewhat older than the norm. Nomadic Tibetan children never go to school because they live in remote regions, far removed from any educational facility. Tashi was no exception.
When Tashi was 18, her world seemed to collapse around her as both her parents died in quick succession. But Tashi did not go to pieces--she is made of sterner stuff. Because of the training of her parents and her own nature,
Tashi comprehended the law of cause and effect. She held resolutely to this understanding, and was able to survive the emotional, psychological and resources double-barreled assault of fate upon her young existence. Tashi is a very assiduous and honest member of the (APHOO) team. She is a responsible and dependable staffer who is greatly respected by her colleagues.
