Dorji P Wangmo is from Dogar, Paro and has graduated from Shari Higher Secondary School. Dorji was raised as a child by her single mother along with 4 other younger siblings but had been living with her grandparents because of financial difficulty her mother faced. She topped class 11 science in 2018 and received an academic excellence award from His Majesty the King. She achieved 80.25 % in class 12 and yet that was only enough to get a half scholarship to study MBBS. She shared that she was very disheartened to get half scholarship because on one hand her dream of becoming a doctor was close but on the other hand it seemed far away because there was no way her family could afford the other half scholarship. She will study MBBS at Kelaniya University, Sri Lanka.
