Fellows in cohort 2021

I was born in Kyakmi, Syangja. 15 days after my birth, our family shifted to a new house in Rampur, Palpa. Then, we moved to India when I was still very young. Interestingly, my childhood was never spent in one place which was also the reason I found it quite difficult to make new friends. My childhood demanded a lot of adjustments and travels which somehow developed a reserved personality in me. For a very long time, Nepal was a vacation destination for me. When I finally shifted to Rampur to proceed with my life journey, it had basic facilities essential to support living but my expectations were quite high then. Not being able to do what I wanted to do, not being able to have what I craved for and the unexpected weather left me low-spirited. There were no friends to interact with and no guidance from anyone. Because I consumed a lot of time in adjustment and acceptance, I started scanning the opportunities and possibilities around me which resulted in me joining computer classes. …

The semester fees were quite high fo…

Raised in a small village, I did not have ideas about different professions one can choose for their future. We had only heard of doctors and engineers. When asked about our ambitions, we would say either of these two. At one point in my life, I often used to get anxious about my future. I had wanted to pursue psychology, law, and many other career paths. I wanted to work in different companies and organizations. I wanted to travel the world. But the feeling of not getting to do all the things I wanted troubled me. I later realized that instead of worrying about my future, I should rather focus on my present. I began to think about taking one step at a time and started enjoying every step. This experience helped me in appreciating the present moment. Being an introvert, I loved to observe but always wanted to avoid trouble. One of my closest school friends was constantly bullied but never fought back. Once things got out of control, I stood up for him against the bullies and the…
