Tenzin Choezin was born and brought up in Dharamshala, a small town in northern India. She went to the Tibetan Children’s Village School in upper Dharamshala, and later completed her further studies in English Literature from Madras Christian College in Chennai and Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
She had previously worked for the Dharamshala-based Central Tibetan Women’s Association as its Project Officer, through which she received training in capacity building, gender issues and lifeskills that fueled her interest in training other people from the exile community.
Currently Choezin is the Head Consultant for Tibetan Career Center, a unit of Youth Empowerment Support of the exile Tibetan administration.
Whenever she gets free time, Choezin likes to write poetry and short stories inspired by and based on her lived experience. “When I write,” she says, “I feel unstoppable.”
