From the articles she writes, news that she shares to the statuses she writes, Rukshana is definitely a figure to look out for! The Newa activist got her moment on The Storytellers as a storyyeller recently. Rukshana shares confidently about the bullying that she faced not only from students but also her principal during high school and coming out as transgender. She keeps it real throughout and in the thirteen minute long video, we get a very small fragment of how it feels to be a trans person in Nepal. Of course, the experiences will vary across but thank you to Rukshana for atleast sharing her journey so far.
To learn more about Rukshana, read her story here on the blog.
