Kelsang GGT came to the United States in 1993 under the 1000 Tibetans resettlement immigration act with no formal education and English language skills. Now he has built a comfortable life in Vermont where he runs a 10-year-old successful motel business. GGT bought Rodeway Inn and transformed the 21 room motel into GGT Tibet Inn, despite advantages to the franchise motel name recognition. GGT says that with hard work and courage, America is a land of possibilities. He had donated to many Tibetan projects, institutes and organizations.
