Tenzen Khemchung- President

Tenzen Khemchung – President

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers


Year: 2nd

I ran for AASA CORE because I understand that underrepresentation in communities, such as my own, can be damaging. I am a Tibetan American who often feels that my country isn’t well seen in the media, and my mission is to make sure we give space and opportunities to other such countries in Asia who deserve recognition. During my years at Augsburg, I’ve learned about other communities and now, as President, I hope I’m able to bring forth voices for those who need them, as well as connect with other organizations. I hope to make AASA a memorable learning experience for our members and for the Augsburg community.

Hobbies: Crocheting, Knitting, watching shows/movies, listening to music.

Therefore, being AASA’s vice president will help me experience what it’s like to be in a position where I can gain new skills and display my potential. I also hope that through AASA’s events, Augsburg students can find a sense of community and make their college experience more memorable.
