Tenzin Namdol

“As a stateless Tibetan, born in India and exposed to early life struggles, I am invested in immigration law because of my own previous precarious legal status and unique upbringing. Earning a legal education has equipped me with the instruments necessary to assist others to escape the feelings of helplessness and uncertainty that I knew all too well. Scholarships such as the Dalai Lama Graduate Scholarship – which funds a portion of my tuition – help lighten my financial burden and allow me to devote my time to learning and partaking in extracurricular activities.”
