Tenzin Jigme

“I was born in Lhasa, Tibet and grew up in Tibetan refugee boarding schools in India (TCV). Afterwards, my involvement in international development programs for Tibetan communities in collaborating with the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), Tibetan NGOs and witnessing the impact these development interventions have on the lives of individuals and entities encouraged me to draw deeper into development studies. I am deeply honored in being a recipient of The Dalai Lama Graduate Scholarship and it is an affirmation that I am on the right track to confront poverty and inequality that the world is facing now.”
