    We have seen the Miss Tibet Pageant has been carried on for the last ten to fifteen years, but i couldn’t see anyone coming out with a helpful hand to our society. Did they forget their promise when they were crowned? Sad.

  2. Zhaxi Tsomo says:

    When I first heard about Miss Tibet I thought it was so great, having seen the situation in China and India for myself. It would be so amazing and encouraging to have only Tibetan dancing, singing, and anything else that is traditional. Tibetan judges and Tibetan people voting. I am not Tibetan but I love the Tibetan cause, and welcome all Tibetans to New Zealand. We love you!!

  3. Tenzin says:

    Not speaking or writing Tibetan makes you not Tibetan? I don’t really get that. If your bloodline comes from Tibet you should be able to run for Miss Tibet. Plus, all the beautiful Tibetan girls can’t really speak proper Tibetan anyway.

    The winner prize money must increase!!! As you are always increasing the entry ticket!!

    Mr Lobsang la, i appreciate your hard work and efforts towards the pageant, as it really does give empowerment to women, coming up on such a beautiful platform where she gets the utmost opportunity to showcase herself and her talent.

    But don’t you think the swimsuit round could be avoided? You could substitute it with a new round. Only then could our spiritual head and the prime minister come and support the pageant with their physical presence, which would be really historic for the Miss Tibet Pageant.

    Hi Lobsang La,

    Are you still giving any consideration to the people of Tibet, that to “Be able to speak proper Tibetan” is in the criteria of Miss Tibet Pageant.

    1) All the controversies on 2016 are because of her spoken Tibetan language.

    2) Countless people verbally and literally requested you to do that for the overall good of future Miss Tibet.

    I knew perhaps you would not allow to post this, or remove this from your website. But I am sure people will raise this issue through many channels.

  7. Ngawang Tashi says:

    This is a great opportunity for young girls to come up on the stages different level. And to represent Tibet as a Nation, and Tibetan women’s power. Our young, energeticm and beautiful girls should be encouraged to participate.

  8. Tenzin Norzom says:

    It’s a warm opportunity for our Tibetan young ladies. We can do it. We can speak and stand up as representatives of our nation . We have confidence to seek any platform. Go girls. We can share and speak of our culture identical around the world! Thanks.
