She was in prison from age 13 to age 24 for peaceful forms of protest. She was released due to international pressure in 2002 before the visit of Chinese President Jiang Zemin to American President George Bush.
Both Yungchen Lhamo and Ngawang Sangdrol have been blessed and encouraged to continue their activity by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
