Blind Tibetan Teenagers Featured in Award-Winning Film, 'Blindsight,' Unite with Students from Junior Blind of America to Share Life Experiences
Date:2/11/2008

erest. The dangerous journey soon becomes a seemingly impossible challenge -- made all the more remarkable because the teenagers are blind.

With guidance by Sabriye Tenberken (Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and Time Magazine Hero of The Year), a blind educator and adventurer who established the first and only school for the blind in Tibet, the students invited the famous blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer to visit their school after learning about his conquest of Everest. Erik arrived in Lhasa and inspired Sabriye and her students -- Kyila, Sonam Bhumtso, Tashi, Gyenshen, Dachung and Tenzin -- to let him lead them higher than they had ever been before. The resulting 3-week journey is beyond anything they could have predicted.
