Namgay Zam shares her experiences

My name is Namgay Zam. I graduated from CTAS last year in the art of Embroidery. I am from Kabesa, Thimphu. I am 21 years old. I have a single parent, my mother Tandin Wangmo. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. I went to school only up to 4th grade and joined CTAS because my mother could not pay for further schooling.

When I first joined CTAS I was not sure how I would perform and eventually secure my livelihood. Today standing here after completing the full 5-year program, I am confident that I will find a good job. I am currentlyworking under one of the best teachers at Chubachu, Thimphu. With all the knowledge and skills that I have acquired at the school, I stand out as a person full of confidence and am ready to take on new tasks and to be a productive citizen. I am content and very fortunate to have joined this school and, apart from earning my livelihood, I will also be contributing to the preservation and promotion of our art and culture, which is fundamental in promoting Gross National Happiness, a development goal of our country.

I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all our teachers, staff, all our supporters and particularly Mr. Koenraad and Leila for giving us this opportunity to study at this school without which I would not be the person that I am today. Thank you everyone and we will always remember your kindness and good times we enjoy at this school.
