“Have you seen butterflies wandering in the garden filled with beautiful flowers? I consider myself a wanderer too driven by all the beautiful things life has to offer. A curious soul always drawn to new experiences. I am a 27-year-old girl who finds her sanctuary in the arms of her family yet is always in the quest of the place to call her own “
Shanti Limbu as expressed in her own words is a courageous wanderer who found her way to us at AB Ventures after taking a long detour in life. Being raised by a single mother, Shanti learned her values and ethics of becoming a strong woman through her and it was her mother who constantly pushed her to dream bigger.
“My mother is my inspiration for she always supported me and taught me that I am capable of achieving all the great things in life. She raised me as a feminist and that has been my driving force of motivation.”
Shanti finished her high school from the southern foothills of Bhutan and went on to continue her higher education in the eastern part of Bhutan.
“My Bachelor’s degree in Media Studies and English has equipped me with the skills of storytelling, content writing and introduced me to the art of photography. Now, I share an immense passion for photography and all the stories I fail to put into words I narrate it through the lens of my camera.”
To continue her passion for art, storytelling and photography, Shanti travelled to Thailand. She worked as an English teacher in a vocational college.
“Teaching in a foreign land to people who spoke a foreign language was challenging but at the same time very satisfying for I was able to define myself as an independent and strong woman and teach myself the skills of patience, adaptability and compassion.”
In her two years of staying in Thailand, Shanti even learned the language and travelled to various parts of the country. She claims the experience made her open up and become more friendly.
Then the world was taken over by the Covid-pandemic and Shanti returned home to seek refuge and remain with her family through the scary times. And in due course of time, Shanti stumbled upon AB Ventures.
“I have always loved writing and my expertise lies in the field of social media management too so AB Ventures was the perfect place for me. Additionally, knowing that I was going to be able to learn new things every day and expand my creative skills excited me. My mother was also very happy and proud to know that I could do what I love in AB Ventures.”
