“I never imagined that I would be a part of this page because I have been in Thimphu for only a few years. As a kid I always wished that we lived here as there were lots of opportunities and stuff happening in the capital. I studied in Paro for eight years, after which I came here for my diploma at the Faculty of Nursing and Public Health.

I have always been a curious person, wanting to learn as much as I can. When I was younger, I loved to sketch portraits, break dance, beatbox and take pictures. After attending a photography workshop, I developed a keen interest and started to study more on it. I’m grateful to all my tutors from the Fredic Robert’s Photography Workshop as they helped me develop essential skills.

As soon as I was done with my high school, I started interning with the Bhutan football federation’s media department. I have been working there for more than four years, during which I also completed my diploma. I am interested in a variety of crafts and I learn from the internet most of the time. There is a tutorial for almost everything on YouTube and we make use of it.

Even though the modules I studied at college were interesting, I tended to gravitate more towards media and mass communication. It includes a lot of relevant processes we practice in this day and age, and it is one of the most practical skills to have, in my opinion. I have been fortunate enough to meet the right people at the right time and I give my best to deliver the tasks that I am assigned with. The people I work with are awesome and I feel blessed to be spending time with them. We all grow together.

I was also slightly into music during high school but didn’t explore much. It was only when I reached college and the internet was easily available that I figured I really liked the hip-hop genre. It included people I could look up to. Hiphop has also been a mentor for me as there are millions of lessons taught with millions of stories told through it.
I started following the bhutanese rap scene when I was seventeen and recorded my first song a year later with my friend Gyelring. I have about ten songs right now and few of them are with the rap ghi gap acho JD, who got me into dzongkha rap and also helped me get an audience. Most of them are school kids and most of them are into hip hop.

In my opinion it is the best genre to spread awareness and to unify and inspire the young people. After all, we are the future of the nation.”
