Chado Wangmo is from Jala, Wangdue Phodrang and has recently graduated from Ugyen Academy where she was a recipient of academic scholarship. Chado and her four other siblings were brought up by her single mother and a grandmother. Her mother works as a launderer in the school and does not earn enough to support her five children. She achieved 82.75 % in class 12 and that was only enough to get a half scholarship to study MBBS. With this scholarship she can now pursue her MBBS degree and cover the remaining part of the expenses. She will study MBBS at Peradeniya University in Sri Lanka.
