In his 6th grade, he shares how he started paying more attention to education after seeing all his peers being celebrated for their accomplishments. Then, Atsentsang discusses his thoughts on education and what his life could’ve been if he was educated in India or Nepal. After college, he unfolds the journey to his professional life and how he ended up being in New York to get closer to the Tibetan Community.
