Introducing myself and my journal: Luckygirl's diary

About Me:
I am a lucky girl who got her life back after experiencing death.

Originally I come from a hill village in Western Nepal. 3 years ago, I fell in love with a fellow Nepali man, who promised to marry me and give me a good life. I left my village with him.
Instead, he brought me to India and forced me into prostitution. It was a living hell.

But sometimes miracles happen. When I was in village, I had met an Indian girl who had visited our village once.
A few months back, I managed to contact her and she helped me come out of the ring of prostitution.
She is Stella Paul - who is now a VoF correspondent. I am here because of her.

With help from Stella Paul, I have managed to get a job in an NGO. And now I am learning to use computer, Internet and video.
One day I dream to return to Nepal and teach all these to girls there, so that nobody will meet with the fate I had.

Because of many risks involved, I can't reveal my real name or my location. In fact I live in a lot of fear. But I have heard from sister Stella Paul that this is one forum where everyone is supportive and understanding.

So, I hope to get support from this forum, from other sisters. I hope you will not discriminate against me because of my past profession.

My Passions:
Sports, culture

My Challenges:
Lack of a formal degree

My Vision for the Future:
Digntity and decent work for every girl

My Areas of Expertise:
Sports and dance, community mobilization

Dear Luckigirl
It maybe difficult for you at this stage to express yourself. But keep trying and make as many connections as possible. You will soon get a lot of friends and gain a lot of knowledge. Plus, you will not be alone any more.

Its a pleasure to help you get here. May you go far. Best wishes!
