Updated 19:23, 20-Aug-2021

Tsering Yangjen, a 16-year-old junior high school student in Lhasa City, capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region, used to live in Nyemo County at an altitude of 4,500 meters. As part of a relocation project for poverty-relief purposes, she and her family moved to Tohlung Dechen District in 2018 for better living conditions.

Her family was lifted out of poverty as her mother was provided with a public welfare job in a new area. After being transferred to a new school, she was very scared and had no confidence. But soon Yangjen found out her potential as a school radio announcer with the help of teachers. In the future, she wants to become a China Central Television (CCTV) presenter and hopes to study in Shanghai to expand her horizons.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet. A great effort has been made to help the region to achieve durable stability and high-quality development, which includes the huge contribution of a lot of poverty-alleviation projects.
