Testimonials: Samaanta Foundation Fellows

2016-08-10 with samaanta foundation fellows 1

Since returning to Nepal in May 2013, apart from working at Community Members Interested (COMMITTED), I have been what I can to inspire the next generation of Nepalese to dream BIG and pursue them. To that end, I have been visiting schools and groups of youngster — especially government schools and youngster from low socio-economic backgrounds — and making presentations.

I generally share my life story and what it took for me to get to where I am today in life, personally and professionally.

Last Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016, as part of my UWC Scholarship outreach work I began over a-month-and-a-half ago, I made yet another presentation. This time to Samaanta Foundation fellows.  I talked about my life, UWC Scholarships and about following ones dreams in spite of seemingly impossible odds.

Following the presentation, I received the following from the Foundation coordinator:

  1. Reflections made that very afternoon.
  2. Testimonials/feedback made in the days following the presentation.
