Wen Ch'en (Jenny) T'sering
Jenny is fourteen, but she is shy and quiet and small. At fourteen she
looks more like a twelve year old. She is short and skinny, with a pale
oval face and long black hair which falls past the middle of her back when
she wears it down, though often she wears it in a pony tail. She is
serious and studious, so quiet people often forget she's around.
Jenny lives with her father, who works at the World Bank Bookstore; her
grandmother; twelve-year-old twins, Nordup and Sonam; and four year old
sister, Losha. Her mother died when Losha was born. Jenny's father very
active politically in the Free Tibet
Movement, leaving Jenny to watch out for the younger children, do the
marketing, and help her grandmother take care of the house. She does all
of this quietly, gets good grades in school and--well--listens.
