Dhan Maya is from Domphuchen in Samtse. She graduated from Tendruk Central School – demonstrating hard work, diligence, active volunteerism and participation in other co-curricular activities throughout her academic years. Dhan Maya recognizes the cruciality of providing medical services to all communities right from childhood. She has a strong aspiration to become a nurse and help enhance Bhutan’s healthcare system. Yet, her aspiration felt distant given that her unemployed parents need to raise five children only on the income from subsistence farming and seasonal labor. Therefore, Dhan Maya sees the Loden Scholarship as a glimmer of hope, not just for her aspirations but also for the idea of equal opportunity in Bhutan.
