I grew up in Khalung Village under Mongar Dzongkhag. I studied till 10th grade at Dramitse Central School. I couldn’t qualify to study in government school. I even couldn’t join private school as my parents were divorced and my single mom couldn’t afford to bear the expenses. So, in 2015 I joined CTAS. I think I took the right decision because as an artist I wouldn’t be unemployed, which is an issue faced by many youths currently.
I worked tirelessly so that I could continuously improve my skills and the quality of work is appreciated. I am glad to be able to paint well and have received grade ‘A’ for most of my work. I am motivated to work hard and do my best in this profession.
