On Wednesday evening in Quebec City, the Snow Lion Storytelling Initiative was awarded the Projet par Excellence, the highest recognition at the Forces AVENIR gala. What a thrilling and inspiring privilege to meet the other finalists, young activists from across the world led by the common conviction that individuals have the power and duty to transform the world for the better.
Thank you to my family, Dalai Lama Fellows, McGill University, our collaborators in the children’s book world and the Indian and Tibetan communities — this award is for you! The $15,000 grant propels Snowlion forward. I cannot thank Forces AVENIR group enough for their kindness and generosity.
