Dhang-shab-pa Caroline's father, Ngawang Lobsang Gawa, left Amdo with his family in 1959, and was one of the first children to attend the Tibetan Children's Village (TCV), Dharamsala. He was then part of the first group of Tibetan students to be sent to the Pestalozze International Village in England.
Due to her father's international career, Caroline attended schools in Switzerland, Belgium and United States but has lived in the United Kingdom since she was thirteen years old. After majoring with a biology degree from Bristol University, Caroline went on to study a law conversion course and has one more year of law studies to complete before starting her career at a law firm in London specializing in medical and family law.
In 2005, Caroline spent four months volunteering as a teacher at TCV. She has also volunteered at the Office of Tibet in London.
Caroline with her excellent writing skills is serving within the Kashag Secretariat as a development and communications associate. Her responsibilities include writing project briefs and preparing presentation materials on core CTA projects, coordinating a special mailing in early August, drafting a proposal for a major project for the Department of Information and International Relations, and assisting with specific communication follow-ups.
