TGS has two Interns or “Residential Dons” who will travel along with TGS students and faculty during the school year. But you may be wondering: what do TGS Interns do exactly?
Both of our interns bring unique cultural and international perspectives to the TGS community.
In short, an Intern is part residential adviser, part peer mentor, part counselor, part activity coordinator, and part “whatever may come up on a given day.” Our two talented, smart, and enthusiastic Interns are Nangsal Lama and Stefan Dabroski. Nang and Stefan will be a big part of the TGS student experience as we travel the world.

As TGS students navigate new and unfamiliar places, they’re sure to need advice, guidance and support. “I will work with TGS students by being their ‘older sister,’ so to speak, who will be as approachable and resourceful as possible,” says Nang. “I will facilitate residential life alongside personal counseling.” Her colleague, Stefan, says that a friendly and trusting environment is very important. “I’ll treat TGS students and the issues they may confront with friendliness, calm, and confidentiality.”
The Interns will be a valuable resource for TGS students – but students also have much to teach the Interns. “Listening carefully to the students as we experience the richness of new people, places and ideas will greatly enhance my own learning and reveal a different interpretation of each situation,” says Stefan. Nang agrees, “the diverse backgrounds, cultures, talents, and personas coming together will definitely create a special atmosphere for all of us.”
We’ll check in with the Interns throughout the school year to hear more about their adventures, challenges, and what they’ve learned. Stay tuned!
