28-year-old Jigwurlok is the first teacher with a college degree in the well-known “cliff village” in Liangshan, Sichuan Province. She lives with her family in Atuleer, a village that lies atop a cliff more than 1,400 meters high. A steel ladder made with 6,000 steel tubes was built last year to replace the old one made of rattan vines. It is also the village's only link to the outside world. Now Jigwurlok teaches 30 students from her village along with another woman teacher.
