Hey, I'm Shelby, a senior at the University of Delaware majoring in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Animal Biosciences, with a minor in Jewish Studies. I'm from South Florida, a sister of Sigma Alpha Professional Agricultural Sorority, and I LOVE being a blue hen! Feel free to ask me ANY questions, and check out my fellow UD bloggers here: http://udadmissions.tumblr.com/
A bit of context on this next series of photos: Dharamshala, India is where the exiled government of Tibet resides. Led by the Dalai Lama, nearly 100,000 Tibetan refugees live in this northern Indian city, where they seek to maintain their traditions and culture in exile. The long journey from Tibet to India includes a grueling 28 day walk through the Himalayan mountains. Many of the refugees make this trek as children, sent by their parents in hopes of studying their language and religion in freedom. In conclusion, here’s a young Tibetan monk playing with a kitten.
