Yonten Gyatso was born in the Everest Region of Tibet and educated in India. He worked as a bilingual editor and a translator at Norbulingka Institute, which publishes magazines about Tibetan culture and contemporary Tibetan issues. In 2007, Yonten moved to Switzerland where he learned German, worked with the Tibetan community, and wrote a book about Tibetan immigrant experiences for the Tibetan audience. In 2010, Yonten married Tseyang, moved to Colorado and joined the TVP team as an administrator. Yonten’s firsthand experience of living in Tibet, as well as his language skills and experience in working with Tibetan communities will help to improve our communication with project coordinators in Tibet, and enhance TVP’s overall organizational capacity.
