Third Culture Kids / Global Nomads


Ugyen Lhamo (Kinlay) is a TCK who was born in Thimphu, Bhutan to Bhutanese parents. Due to her father’s work, in the diplomatic field, Ugyen has lived in Rome, Italy for a majority of her life. She has also lived in Thailand and attended boarding school in Switzerland for her last 5 years of high school. As a high school senior at the age of 16, Ugyen decided to venture to the USA for college, and specifically chose Lewis & Clark because of its strong TCK program. She was the first Bhutanese student to ever enroll at Lewis & Clark.

As the ISS/TCK Intern, Ugyen heads the celebrated Third Culture Kids program at Lewis & Clark. She works under the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS).
