On September 9, 2015, on the invitation of Professor Maya Soetoro-Ng , sister to President Obama, I gave a presentation to her Leadership for Social Change class at University of Hawaii.

Titled “Education, Leadership and Life” I talked about my education and life and why I am doing what I am doing in Nepal and abroad to effect social change and contribute to peace in the world.

Here are some photos my friend Kirsten took which give a glimpse into the presentation.
