    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.

    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, energetic and beautiful girls should be encouraged to participate.
