About Me: 

I am a young women activist and an aspiring social entrepreneur from Nepal currently pursuing my Bachelors degree
in University of Oklahoma as a national merit scholar.

My innate interest and work in humanitarian activities since an early age led my way to be selected by British Council as a Global Change Maker- Nepal Youth Representative ’12 (London), United World College Alumni (Representative of Nepal to UWC Norway), Voice of Women Award Winner, an Ambassador of Peace to Nepal in Peace Revolution Campaign 2012 in Thailand and many programs alike where I represented Nepal putting agendas related to empowerment of youths and women in developing countries ahead.

I currently work as the president of Nepal Student Association in University of Oklahoma and as an ambassador of WPPC Nepal where I aim to raise awareness about the stringent situation of women trafficking in Nepal and collect funds to support self led programs and that initiated by WPPC to rescue/ rehabilitate victims back home.

My Areas of Expertise: 
Children’s Rights, Conflict Resolution, Education, Human Rights, Hunger Relief, Intercultural Dialogue, Poverty Relief, Public Health, Social Entrepreneurship, Women’s Rights, Youth Work
