It seems like yesterday I watched my mom's panicked face as I bagged up clothes to give up for donation, packed what was left into boxes, and set out for my first flight to Nepal. I can't believe how much my life has changed.
Nepal has taught me many, many things. Patience. Perseverance. Perspective. The meaning of family. Love. How to give. And how to receive.
A solar project, various scholarships, workshops and seminars, barista training, community events, and a thriving education community -- I have to recognize all of the thoughtful, driven individuals who have supported my drive to encourage education and leadership. I'm so proud of what I, along with the help of so many, have built.
Yet there is so much more to do.
I am humbled every day by the generosity of strangers and friends, by notes of kindness and messages of inspiration, by the hard work and dedication of the Learning House team. I look forward to what the future holds. Judging from the young people I have met and worked with, Nepal has a promising future, and it is my honor to create platforms for their dreams to move closer toward reality.
Thank you for your continued support as we nurture strong, determined leaders and look for ways to contribute thoughtfully within Pokhara valley. If you're interested, you can click here to support my projects.
