“I’m deeply honored to receive the Dalai Lama Graduate Scholarship and grateful for the Gaden Phodrang Foundation’s support of young Tibetan students like myself. My undergraduate studies in International Relations inspired my pursuit of a legal education, driven by a personal and communal commitment to creating access and opportunity for Tibetan communities. As I begin my JD, I aim to empower Tibetans in the United States through legal pathways, fostering empowerment for others worldwide.”
