Mein Weg führ nach Tibet Sabriye Tenberken is one of those rare individuals, who sees a problem and fixes it, rather than waiting on others to do so.She created a Tibetan Braille alphabet, and then implemented the education of blind Tibetan children by starting her own school.The book gets three stars, since the story seems to jump from topic to topic sometimes, but the story it tells is worth five stars At a young age, the author, at the time a college student, decides to go to Tibet Against all advice, she goes completely on her own Of course, there s one big complication she can t see at all Not to worry, she tells herself In the past, whenever she needed assistance, she found that some kind soul would see her white cane, and offer assistance.In China, however, the people don t know what a white cane is they think it s some kind of walking stick Many of the people who see her think she s some dimwit, who doesn t know how to avoid water puddles, or how to do simple navigation.The author developed R.P Retinitis Pigmentosa at a very young age Here s the key to the story Instead of feeling sorry for herself, Sabriye decides to go where no one has gone before She is intent on helping the poor blind children in Tibet and no one is going to stop her And so, that is exactly what the author did She didn t listen to all the naysayers and doubters Overcoming a huge amount of obstacles the author establishes a home for blind children in Tibet MY PATH LEADS TO TIBET is the story of this grand adventure This book relates the adventures that the author encounters on this mind boggling trip to bring braille to the little blind children In Tibet, blind children were seen as either a curse, or a way to make money for the family by begging Many of the blind kids were simply cast aside.The author s journey sometimes meant riding horses near cliffs, sleeping in huts filled with rats, or having her visa canceled Even her sponsoring organization was not faithful in supporting her, and saw Sabriye asof a troublemaker than anything else You name it, Sabriye encountered, then overcame these obstacles.MY PATH LEADS TO TIBET is an absolutely unbelievable story Except it REALLY HAPPENED This book is an inspiration for others who suffer similar disadvantages It s an inspiration to others who do NOT have these disadvantages.Finally, this story has special meaning for this reviewer, since my daughter is gradually losing her sight to the same eye disease R.P I am glad that this wonderful person, Sabriye Tenberken, had the courage and inspiration to pursue her dreams There are lots of little blind children in the world who have a better life thanks to the author My hat is off to her. Love this book very engaging, and very inspiring Makes you think about what one determined and motivated individual can do highly recommended. Amazing storyI chose this book because I like to read about true adventures of real people in different countries What a special woman Sabriye is I am so glad she shared her story I am also so happy she was so successful in taking care of those poor misjudged blind children. After losing her sight by the time she reached double digits, and suffering considerable irritation from people who think she is handicapped, Sabrye Tenberken decides to go and found a school for the blind in Tibet Dispite challenges from local authorities and her sponsors in Germany, she manages to found her school While I found the book readable, I have to give it an average rating though because I found she complains a bit about people helping her and then expects people to help her which was a little weird. After watching a slew of Everest documentaries, I came across the documentary Blindsight about a school for the blind in Tibet and how a famous blind mountaineer took some of them climbing near Everest The woman who founded the school, Sabriye Tenberken, is blind herself and had come from Germany to establish this school and offer a place for Tibet s blind children to learn It was amazing and I was so moved that I immediately had to knowabout these schools I saw that Sabriye sorry to be a little casual, she strikes me as the kind of lady who would insist on being known by her first name and not Ms anything had a memoir about her journey to Tibet and I bought it immediately and read it all in a single sitting.I don t know that I can offer any comment on this woman s life that can compliment her accomplishments properly Just a taste of the strength of this woman she traveled to Tibet by herself with the idea to establish a school to teach braille because she had just created a Tibetan translation for braille Then she headed into the countryside on horseback with only one companion someone she met while traveling she did not bring a sighted companion with her on this journey, feeling that she didn t need one , broke down social stigma barriers related to blindness in encouraging the locals to ADMIT that there were, indeed, blind children because most Tibetans are Buddhist, they believe that afflictions such as blindness are a penance for sins in a past life, so most blind people are shunned and treated poorly When researching for this expedition, Sabriye was told by the government that there were NO blind people in Tibet , then she goes and establishes a school and hires a staff and takes in a group of kids who are so eager to learn that you can t help but read with tears running down your face.It s truly a remarkable story and Sabriye Tenberken is my hero. I gave this book 5 stars in spite of its lack of editorial polish it was written by a blind person, after all, then translated from German It s a great story from an inspiring woman who takes onthan seems possible under the circumstances I originally learned of Sabriye from the movie Blindsight and just had to learnabout this courageous and beautiful woman and her efforts with Tibetan blind children This is not a story about the handicapped it s an epic adventure that is all theimpressive and interesting because of the complication of blindness. Overall, I enjoyed this book I am fascinated with Tibet and would love to travel there someday, so this book caught my eye The story is amazing I think it would be difficult to travel to Tibet and I do not have any disabilities The only reason I gave this book only three stars is because sometimes the author is just a little whiny Other than that, great book is really a very inspiring book it is a must read book you learn so much about how to look to the possibility and not to what you can not is all about not giving up hope, but believing that things will work out and that everything is possible if you just believe in it.
