"I was getting a job offer with a major developer in Dubai but I decided to return to Nepal and give back to my community."

For the last two years, I have also been involved with planning the academics for Bloom Nepal School set up by one of my seniors who dared to leave a lucrative job at the World Bank and return home. I started as the Executive Director of BNS.

Ours is a residential school and currently, we have 650 students based at two campuses across two cities in Nepal. Around 50 percent of our kids hail from a very underprivileged background and are on scholarship. As the Executive Director and a Civil Engineer, I will also be overseeing the design and construction of our new schools alongside engineers from our network.
