Sangay Choden is a diligent student who was born and raised in the capital, Thimphu. Both Sangays parents are Bench Clerks at the High Court in Thimphu. Sangay is very persistent to pursue medical studies but did not qualify for the full MBBS scholarship from DAHE. However, she secured APEMS to Sri Lanka with half scholarship from DAHE, MoE. Her sister will be graduating from class 12 this year and this has put a lot of financial burden on the parents to support both children.
