“We both love basketball and soccer. We have been playing basketball together ever since we learnt how to dribble the ball in class 4. I captained Bhutanese basketball team in various tournaments and my sister runs a football club.

The Kira I am wearing in the picture was given to me by my mother which was handed down to her by her mother. It is an old pattern called the Hothra. The green blouse I am wearing is called Wonju and it is made of silk. The yellow jacket over the Kira is called a Tego and it is made of brocade. My necklace has a strand of cat’s eye stones with gold dorji and coral stones.

When we were little, we used to dress the same with every color matching, but now our style is very different.

I am currently listening to Ed Sheeran & The Weeknd while my sister is into hip-hop and she loves T.I.” — Namzay
