Hey, I'm Tenzin!
Hello! My name is Tenzin, most Tibetans call me Mingyur though because there are so many Tenzins around! You can call me by either name.
I immigrated to the United States in 1989, and grew up in Colorado and Washington State. I'm currently a PhD candidate in the Rhetoric Department at the University of California, Berkeley, where I've been supported by such fellowships and awards as the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship, the Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship, and the Dalai Lama Trust Scholarship.
I began my undergraduate studies at Seattle Central Community College, and received my BA from The Evergreen State College in 2008. I was introduced to filmmaking in 2003 through Reel Grrls.
