Source: Pema

"My dad would give me a kettle and put a teaspoon in it so he could hear me at night."

This is the remarkable story of Pema Dolkar, a Tibetan Refugee who eascaped Tibet as a 6 year old to become the Executive Producer of SBS Tibetan. NITV Radios' Danny Teece-Johnson met Pema at a welcome to country event at SBS, and the story Pema shared with Danny had a profound impact on him. Danny saw many parallels between whats happened in Tibet to whats happened here in Australia to Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander people. 

In this NITV Radio Podcast, Pema sits down with NITV's Danny Teece-Johsnon & Brooke Fryer to tell us her personal journey of fleeing her much much loved homeland of Tibet, living in a refugee settlement school in India and how it feels to not be able to see her parents for the last 20 years. This is a heartbreaking yet inspiring story of one woman's strength, resilience, love and courage who against all the odds has not only survived but thrived here in Australia. 

Pema's story is just one that represents thousands of refugees across Australia. Her story has changed Danny for the better, and it is his hope that by sharing this story with Australia, that our Nation become's a more compassionate, patient and a loving place to live for all.
