“I came to Thimphu because of dance, and it has always been a part of my life. I arrived here with a dream of learning and becoming a better dancer. I can’t recall much from my childhood days, but I harboured numerous ambitions. I aspired to become many things, and being a chef was one of them. Currently, I am a crew member of the ‘Druk Dream Team’ and a chef by profession. Sustaining through dance is a tough challenge in Bhutan, but perhaps in the future, it may improve. I have made my parents proud since the day I started working and earning. While I was not particularly strong academically, I managed to complete up to the 12th grade in a government school.
Initially, I stayed with my friends and their families in Thimphu for over a year, and they treated me warmly. However, since I began working as a chef, I have been living independently. It has been about a year now, and I consider this one of my greatest achievements in life. I don’t aspire to become very wealthy in the future, but if I can be an independent and happy individual, it would be enough for me. Most of the memorable moments I cherish were with my friends. Regardless of what I have done in life, I have no regrets.
If I did not have a passion for dance, I would not have reached the point where I am today. I have had that passion since childhood, but it intensified in 2017, when I was in the 10th grade. I became deeply engrossed in it and even dropped out of school once to focus on dance because I couldn’t concentrate on my studies. I believe that if you pursue what you love, you will have no room for regrets in the future.”
