A Journey from Bhutan to the United States

I liked this short video produced by the Tennessee Office for Refugees.  Here is Gopal Basnet sharing his own personal story of migration as a refugee from Bhutan.

My Journey . . . "Stories of Refugees coming to Nashville" - Gopal from TNOffice4Refugees on Vimeo.
Gopal is a Bhutanese refugee that lived for 18 years in a refugee camp in Nepal. While the Bhutanese expelled all ethnic Nepalese from their country, Nepal would not accept the influx of people and there has been a gridlock foe refugees since. Coming to Nashville, Gopal has made leaps and bounds; starting as one in need himself, to coming to help other refugees as they attempt to re-start their lives with hope of a new future.
