Gardenian Of The Month
Name: Namgyal Wangmo
Class: Final Year (Nursing)
Locale: Garden City College of Nursing
a final year student at the Garden City College of Nursing, Namgyal Wangmo was born in the Tibetan settlement of Mundgod in Karnataka, a few hours drive from the city of Bengaluru. Later, she spent more than a decade in Tamil Nadu where she did her schooling. Her name beholds sincerity and hard work even as she professes a strong spiritual inclination to her Buddhist faith. Staying away from her home country has not in anyway posed challenges to the caring and dignified young achiever. If anything, she has enjoyed lovely days through the journey of life making her adaptable, caring and affectionate to all those who have come in her path. She has a twin brother and an ambivert natured girl. Namgyal shared a few words of joy being the Gardenian of the Month with the GCC Correspondent Vibha Luvenia.M.
Excerpts from the Chat:
Tell us something about your family and childhood.
Namgyal: I come from a middle class family of five. I have a sister and younger brother.
My childhood was spent in a boarding school in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu. I was born in Karnataka but spent my childhood in Chennai.
Being in Bangalore. How has been this experience?
Namgyal: It has been a great experience. I have made good friends. The weather, the place and the expenses, everything is comfortable and satisfactory here. I could not have asked for more.
Why Nursing? What next?
Namgyal: I love caring for people. Initially, I dreamt of a profession where I could teach, a career in medicine or engineering. Later, I chose Bio-Mathematics as my major subjects. So, my friends suggested that I should pursue a course in nursing through which I could be in both medical and teaching professions with the possibilities of making a living and serving people.
Next: I would like to work for a year, and then take up a master’s degree course.
Later, I would like to be a lecturer.
You are a good orator. Your inspiration?
Namgyal: Again. I can only give the credit to my school. I was bold enough so my teachers encouraged me in all that I did.
Any message to Gardenians?
Winning is not a major thing in life. Don’t lose hope because of little things. Participation is more important because it’ll give you a lot of experiences. Never get into depression and think it is the end of the world just because you couldn’t win something. Wait for a chance and work towards winning, always.
My gratitude to the management of my college, faculty and students for their support at all times.
“Ms. Namgyal Wangmo is responsible, humble by nature, well- disciplined and efficient and professional in any task assigned to her.”

“She is very professional, dedicated and has all the qualities of a professional nurse. Aside, she takes extra efforts in her work, concerned about patients and has an exceptional understanding of diverse cultures. She has the qualities of the profession of nursing.”
“You can find in Namgyal Wangmo a very caring, flexible and approachable role model keen to help anyone who comes seeking for assistance. Having lived in the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, she is adaptable, interacts well with others, punctual and always the first to volunteer for any kind of work or assignment.”
“All the students at the college call her Namu. She is one person who is always in the gang for the fun and at the same time she understands her responsibilities. Not surprising she is the pet of all the lecturers. She is one whose memories will always be cherished by everyone even after we finally pass out of the college.”
Ms. Juelyin Joseph
4th Year Nursing
“She is one person who likes to be independent and knows very well what is expected of her. But she can also be irritating sometimes. She has a helping hand, very jovial and everything good one can say. She is in touch with just about everyone but will never depend on anyone for her work.”
