Sangay Choden was born and raised in Thimphu. Sangay’s parents are bench clerks at the High Court in Thimphu. Sangay is a very diligent learner who is persistently striving to study medical studies. She received a half-scholarship Assistance to Privately Enrolled Medical Students (APEMS) to Sri Lanka from DAHE however, her parents were unable to cover the rest of the cost since both Sangay and her younger sibling depend on their parents for their undergraduate expenses. Today, Sangay was able to lift that financial burden from parents with the help of the Loden Scholarship.
