Describe yourself in three words.
Confident, brave and persistent.

Your priority for the constituency.
People come first for me and my priority would be to respect their belief and consider change in government plans if it is against the culture and superstition of the community, especially while undertaking infrastructural development. Health is at the basic level in my constituency and improving health service is my priority.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
Like: In other constituencies I heard about candidates spying on one another and focused on competing against each other. It is different here with the candidates in my constituency. We are both young and respect each other. This gained us praise from the people saying the election process is fair in the constituency.
Dislike: Defamatory remarks and spreading of rumors occurring mostly on social media is not enriching. However, I feel that this happening on social media has no influence in my community.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
Electing new party is the biggest challenge according to me. People trust old party over strong and new party. If not for the young contender this election, it would have been challenging to contest against experienced candidates.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
I am the first woman from Gasa to contest in an election and I feel that people should vote for me, for a change and to open opportunities for woman and youth in the future. I was born and brought up in the community and I am the best person to understand the hardship and issues of the people.
I aspire to gain trust of the people by representing them with my best ability at the parliament.

The first thing you will do if you win.
At the nation level, the party pledged to launch SuungjoenApp and free wi-fi points and that would be delivered within first 120 days. My constituency is in need of good road condition and I will focus on enhancing the road connectivity in my constituency.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
I see both positive and negative sides of social media this election. The real account user showed support and appreciation while anon account users defamed and pass hate speech. The spread of fake news on social media is a major setback this election process.

Describe yourself in three words.
Dedicated, trust worthy and punctual.

Your priority for the constituency.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
Like: It is an opportunity for us to get experience and interact with different people.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
The biggest challenge is youth unemployment.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
I am the only one who understands the lifestyles of highlanders.  I have the experience of hardships staying in Lunana and Khamed. I feel that I will be able to serve my constituency with full dedication.

The first thing you will do if you win.
I would like to get back to people and thank them for the support if I win this election. And the first thing that I would like to do for the people of Lunana is to try my best to connect them with electricity.
For Khamed gewog I would like to focus on enhancing agricultural products to help people realize self-reliance and independence.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Social media has both pros and cons, so I could say that it should be used by the society as per the rules and regulations of Election Commission of Bhutan during election period.
