Sangay is the only child to a mother who is a person living with intellectual disability. Sangay completed her class 12 in 2017 but there was no other way to find a source to pay for her college. Sangay’s uncle, who paid for her entire school, was now paying school expenses of his own two children. Sangay is pursuing Bachelors in History and Dzongkha at Royal Thimphu College in Bhutan and wants to become a member of the parliament one day.
