She then realized that she could do more. "I had always believed that I was totally different from sighted people. Fortunately this is not true. Although I am blind, I am not stupid and can do everything that sighted people can do. This was a revelation to me; I was seeing a new world. I felt free and full of energy," she wrote in her blog.

From basic living skills such as washing and dressing herself, to learning languages and professional skills such as Chinese massage, acupuncture and physiotherapy, Kylia has never stopped learning.

However, not every blind kid in Tibet has such opportunity. The visually impaired rate is higher in high-altitude areas. Besides, Kindergartens in rural areas, if at all available, are too expensive for the average child.
