The Miss Tibet Pageant shows the world that Tibetan women are at par with the rest of the world, and that Tibetans have their own glorious history to share.
Tenzing Lhamo is from Madison, US. She is a Registered Nurse with Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Nursing. For relaxation Tenzing likes to read, listen to music, and learn new things.
Tenzing went to college to pursue a degree in Biology in the hopes of following a career in medical research. But as she learned more, she found that she wanted a career involving more communication and hands-on experience with people.
So after graduating from college with her degree in Biology with biomedical concentration in 2009, she took a year off, worked as a nursing aide in long-term care, and found that she really liked working with the geriatric population. She went back to school and got her second baccalaureate in Nursing.
Currently Tenzing works as a Registered Nurse in the state of Wisconsin in a rehab center for long-term care. She plans to go back to school to obtain her DNP degree after gaining a year or two’s worth of experience in the nursing field. When she is established in her career, she would like to return to her home in South India and set up practice there, and give back to the community that molded her.
Tenzing feels that the Miss Tibet Pageant shows the world that Tibetan women are at par with the rest of the world, and that Tibetans have their own glorious history to share.
She says that whether in terms of entertainment, the causes that the pageant supports, or the controversy around the pageant, it has done one thing right, which is getting the attention of the media towards the Tibetan issue. She sees that there are other smaller but equally significant benefits of the pageant, such as bringing the Tibetan community together for a few days to celebrate their culture and customs.
