President of NRNA National Council of America

I currently reside in Ellicott City, Maryland, USA.  and I have the honor of serving as the President of the NRNA National Coordination Council of America. My professional journey has primarily been in the field of higher education in the United States, where I’ve spent considerable time, including more than 17 years in Texas and seven years in Ohio.

My story began in a small and humble village in Arghakhanchi, Nepal. My educational foundation was laid at Shree Saraswati Higher Secondary School in Suryathum, Arghakhanchi, where I started my academic journey.

When it came time for college, I set out on a remarkable adventure. To reach the nearest bus station in Tansen, Palpa, I embarked on a journey that required walking for one and a half days. Those days of determination and perseverance are etched vividly in my memory, shaping the person I am today.

I completed my Intermediate in Science (ISc) from Amrit Science Campus in Kathmandu, which marked the next step in my educational journey. Furthering my studies, I pursued my Bachelor in Science (BSc) at Tri-Chandra Campus, also in Kathmandu. These academic pursuits broadened my horizons and prepared me for the challenges that lay ahead.

However, my journey took a significant turn when I decided to change my major. I shifted my focus and dedicated myself to completing my Masters in Population Studies from Tribhuvan University in Nepal. This shift in focus allowed me to explore new perspectives and interests in my academic career.


In 1998, I made the life-changing decision to come to the United States for further studies. Here, I embarked on a path that would define my future. I completed my Master’s degree in International Affairs with a concentration in Communication and Development at Ohio University in Ohio, USA. My thirst for knowledge and commitment to personal growth led me to continue my studies at Ohio University, where I successfully earned my PhD in Mass Communication.

Throughout my journey, both in Nepal and the United States, I’ve remained dedicated to serving the Nepali society through my professional and social work. This commitment has spanned over 25 years and reflects my unwavering passion for making a positive impact on my community.

One of the invaluable experiences of my life has been the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Nepal. This has not only enriched my understanding of the diverse culture and geography of my homeland but has also helped crystalize my vision of serving the community. These experiences have shaped me into the person I am today, driven by a deep sense of purpose and a desire to contribute to the betterment of society.

Community Impact and Social Contributions

While in Nepal and the U.S., I have served the Nepali society through professional and social work for over 25 years. The following are the few of the outstanding contributions I made with unwavering commitment and philanthropic endeavors to leave a significant impact on our community


I joined the Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Program’s Nepal Office in 1995 as a consultant and later as Assistant Program Officer until I left Nepal for the U.S. for further studies in 1998.

As a college student in the U.S., I was one of the founding members and founding Treasurer for the Nepali Public Relations Committee, America (Nepali Janasamparka Samiti, America). I later served as the member secretary and advisor for this organization. During these years, I served as one of the delegates (Mahaadhibesan Pratibidhi) for the Nepali Congress Party’s National Convention from America.

I joined the Bhaktapur Campus and later Ratna Rajya Laxmi Campus of Tribhuversity in 1995, right after I completed my Master’s degree. I started as an instructor and later as a tenured Assistant Professor. I taught Population Education courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
