Yuzin "Sita" Tamang

Sita is 23 years old and has had two years of college studying business. When she was 18, she entered into a quick marriage against her family's wishes. Shortly after she was married, her husband began beating her daily. The beatings continued for the next year and a half, for seemingly no reason at all. The stress of her living situation caused her to go into a deep depression and she became very thin and sick. She finally gathered the courage to leave and return to her family. With her earnings she wishes to support her mother and start saving money for the future. She also crochets small purses out of plastic bags to sell for additional income and works as a project assistant for an environmental agency. She dreams of being a fashion designer and enjoys making her own clothing.
