I don’t exactly remember how I was as a child but my mother remembered me as being very quiet and obedient. Losing her left me totally devastated and I couldn’t figure out what to do next in life. I was a teacher during those hardest time of my life but I kept myself occupied with my students and their studies since that was where my mother wanted me to be. “Provide what you have acquired as knowledge to your students.” This line always echoes in my mind and I still find her answer very relevant to overcome my most difficult time. I thought of changing students’ outlook by making them understand that teaching too is a better profession to help establish good leaders for the nation. I wish to see the positive change in everyone I come across, be it students, strangers or anyone I meet. The teachers at my schools from whom I have gained knowledge were also my role models. They were always positive regarding my studies and behavior. Watching them teach, I have always wondered how it feels like to be a teacher. They mentioned students from rural areas of Nepal on how deprived they are of a good education, but are always striving for it and a better life. I really want positive change in the education system, and would like to help accomplish the very aim of ending education inequity mostly in rural Nepal. I found this possible through Teach For Nepal Fellowship and got encouraged to move further with the same vision. And I do believe that change can happen if we begin with small attempts.
