“The review that we did will be able to make a huge impact because we saw it through a lens that policymakers won’t necessarily see” (Tashi Lhaden, CNR)

However, beyond offering their review on the NYP as a concrete output, YI aims to awaken their social and political consciousness so that they become citizens who take full responsibility of their roles in building our country together; “I sleep as a concerned citizen but wake up as a responsible citizen” (Tenzin Yoezer, CST).
