I completed my schooling from a public school. Having attended a public school, I faced humiliation and subjugation by the hands of my own friends who, on the other hand, had studied at a private school. They held a perception that the students from public schools are basically worthless. That experience prompted me to bridge the gaps between private and public education and its students. When my friend mentioned Teach For Nepal for the first time, I was really amazed. I then tried to gather more information about it through their website and Facebook page. I was intrigued by their motto that envisions, “One day all children in Nepal will attain an excellent education.” The movement’s remarkable work in the education sector encouraged me to apply for the Fellowship. My first meeting with Teach For Nepal was wonderful. I still remember my interaction with Anu Karki, who had an encouraging personality. Her kindness and friendly nature aided in strengthening my confidence. I want to educate the students of public school without making any compromises over the educational standards. I am also positive that this experience will make me capable of refining my communication skills and building leadership qualities. That way I can explore more about myself.
