Tenzin Yangkyi

Tenzin Yangkyi is a student from Zurich, Switzerland. She was born in 1993 and has a height of 171 cm. She has just completed Class 10. She can speak Tibetan, German, and English, and likes singing, dancing, travelling, and sports.

Since she is interested in acting, fashion, and modelling, her main aim is to become a successful model in future and make it her career. She has already done modelling a few times and was appreciated by her mentors. Fortunately her family supports her interest, so she took this opportunity to participate in Miss Tibet 2011 contest which will further boost her zest to become a great model in future.

In my opinion, Miss Tibet can help the Tibetan issue in a great many ways. Being Miss Tibet means representing Tibet, and the name itself only gets the attention of the media. The media is the ultimate way to raise Tibet's voice to the world. Specially, Miss Tibet can help raise awareness of the Tibetan issue within the youngsters.

  9. karma rapten says:

    You are the most beautiful of all the contestants ever in history of Miss Tibet. Thumbs up for you and good luck for future. Tashi delek.

    • Tashi Dhundup says:

      If you know the history of Tibet, you would know how is the Tibetan beauty. Tibetan beauty is good in its own way so it applies to the rest. Would you compare Indian beauty to American or to African? I respect all the other Miss Tibets and they are truly Tibetan!

    • Sophitia Alexandra says:

      Totally agree ! Tenzin Yangkyi is the most beautiful Miss Tibet that I have ever seen !

    I have never attended any of the Miss Tibet contests held till date. Although i like the idea of using this platform not just for the Tibetan cause but also for empowering Tibetan women, i have never enjoyed the event and least of all the winners of this contest. But i do appreciate the unflinching effort by Lobsang Wangyal, and yet am somewhat appalled by such meagre support in our community. This time i can proudly say ‘job done’, cos i think for the first time (according to me), the crown fell into the hands of a truly and completely deserving candidate. Now that the bars and standards are raised, i hope we will see more participation from every deserving tibetan gal. Congrats Yangkyi.

  20. Pass says:

    hi yankyi
    yahh within 6 contest, you are really eligible and also photogenic too.
    i (we ) heard that you are cocktail. but we want to ask you too, do you have green book? (tibetan citizen)?
    Mr Lobsang Wangyal la, till now i didn’t miss your show. i respect your work and also salute you! but 1 question: 5-6-2011 show, Miss Tenzin Yangkey says she is 17 years old. Is it true law? (in television – all Miss were 18- 25 year)
    Directly suggestion – try to patial!

    • tenzindolma says:

      Pass…. just to let you know all tibetans in europe and in usa own greenbook, Rangzem lakdep, and contributing few amount every year. We also have rights to vote president of tibetan govt in exile and we are no doubt part of Tibetan as in Unity in diversity. And Yangkyi is half tibetan but stil she is a tibetan blood. regarding her age 17 or teenage from 16th participate in america next top model or germany top model. its according to rule. hope i clear your confusion. peace out.

      • non.miss.tibet.supporter says:

        Tenzin Dolma la, who says all Tibetans pay their share of the required green book payment?? This is one of the biggest issues we have as Tibetans now, people going abroad and not paying their share unless it’s for their benefits. And please, this is not Tibet top model …. it’s Miss Tibet contest and if we are so called going by the rules, the minimum age is 18. And also…. this Yangkyi seems to me like she found her way into the modeling world as that’s her Sim in life… why *** do you people vote for people who have no knowledge or sense of Tibet?

  21. tenzingr1 says:

    When I checked out the pictures of contestants, I knew right away that you were the most eligible gal to win the title. I even told my friends that you will win it. I even voted for you for Miss Photogenic. But i was there to watch the “talk and talent” round. That day I thought your dress was not very good. Anyways you are beautiful, you were the most deserving of all.

  22. dawa kelsang says:

    Hi dear Tenzin, I was not at the final but my heart knew that I will hear your name for the Miss Tibet. Love you and be a true diva.
