“What inspired me towards this academic and professional journey in the fields of journalism, documentary filmmaking, and anthropology was the amazing power of storytelling and of visual representation of individuals and communities. Through the creative approach and critical studies within these interdisciplinary fields, I focus my works on identity, education, pastoralism, and nomadism. I thank the Gaden Phodrang Foundation for selecting me to receive the Dalai Lama Graduate Scholarship for 2022. I consider this support a blessing from His Holiness not only for my studies but also for my future aspiration and plans as a researcher and a filmmaker working within the Tibetan community and the world at large.”
