I dance at different cultural events on campus. I play basketball and do yoga on the side as hobbies.

 I was born in a small town in Northern Tibet. I later lived in Nepal and then moved to  Northern India where I attended T.C.V Gopalpur, which is a Tibetan boarding school. I am majoring in Global Studies and minoring in Asian Studies. I love how well Global studies and Asian Studies integrate with one another by intertwining ideologies from multiple perspectives. I am a recipient of Presidential Diversity Scholarship and a Community Assistant at St. Lawrence University. I am also a former Vice President and current member of Asian Students Intercultural Association (ASIA) club on campus.
