This summer, Tenzin Tsagong ’16 traveled to Northern India to work for a nonprofit called Tibetan Women’s Association with funding from a Preston Public Interest Career grant from Bowdoin’s Career Planning office. She answered some questions about her experience with the association, which has been active since the Tibetan uprising in March of 1959, and provides women — many of whom have very little education — with leadership and vocational skills, along with other training. In addition to their support for women, TWA also contributes to the Tibetan struggle. Read the Q&A with Tsagong here.
