Nine White Banners
Uyanga Erdenebold went blind at the age of 14. At age 16, while blind, she taught herself to read and speak English from Braille books (books with bumps on the pages so blind people can read them by touch). She had already read every single Mongolian book available in Braille, and she couldn’t bear the idea of never reading another book.
She won a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to study library science in America. She works at the US Embassy in Ulaanbaatar, but dreams of opening a library in Ulaanbaatar so that everyone who loves books can find them.

My dream is to establish a modern library in Ulaanbaatar. As you can see in UB, there are not many libraries that are convenient, or places where people want to stay and read. I want to have a very nice, friendly library, where children, disabled people, elderly are welcome to read their newspapers. I see it as a friendly, sunny place where people would feel comfortable, read books and be happy.
