Tibetan students chase dreams in Beijing

26-12-2012 | From:

Though Kyangpa often longs for the azure sky of his hometown, he knows there's a better chance that his dream of going to university will come true in Beijing.
At 18, Kyangpa is a third year student at a Beijing-based high school for Tibetan students. He is scheduled to sit next year's national college entrance exam and hopes to major in management science at a university in Beijing.
Heavy snowfall over the weekend cleared up smog that had been lingering over Beijing for days, making the capital city a little more like his snow-clad hometown, Lhaze County, Xigaze City, the second-largest city in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.
A farmer's son, Kyangpa stood out among his peers as a child. He was admitted, through recruitment exams, to a junior high school for Tibetan students in Shanghai for three years before moving on to senior high in Beijing.
He is a student leader and served as president of the school's student association until last year.
"Now, I just want to concentrate on my schoolwork in order to get good grades and stand out in the college entrance exam in June," he said. "I hope to enter a good university."
His work at the student association sparked his interest in management and communication. "I hope to study management science and my desired university is China Agricultural University."
Kyangpa and his schoolmates are all proficient in Tibetan and Mandarin and they have also studied English for many years.
"English is the most difficult subject for me -- much harder than Mandarin. But most girls think otherwise," said Kyangpa, who has been studying English since primary school.
