Pema Tobgyel is from Buli, Zhemgang, and has recently graduated from Jakar Higher Secondary School in Bumthang. Pema and his two siblings are being raised by their single mother who largely depends on small scale farming as the main source of income for the family. Pema is a very driven young man and always wished to be a medical professional. He shared that he is happy that he decided to become a nurse because he saw that health workers took risks and delivered important services on the frontline during COVID-19. Pema will study nursing and midwifery at Royal Thimphu College under Loden-RTC Scholarship.
