“I believe becoming a clinical psychologist will allow me to become a professional that is not only excellent in terms of subject proficiency, but also in terms of character where I am able to serve and give back to the Tibetan community. I am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology in Chicago, Illinois. With this degree, I hope to help break the stigma on mental health in order to build a better Tibetan community by striving relentlessly for establishing a hotline communication-channel for Tibetans who are in dire need of psychological treatments. Again, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank His Holiness the Dalai Lama and everyone part of the scholarship committee for enabling this opportunity to give back to the Tibetan community.”
