Summary

I’m the Founder & CEO of Sport Initiatives for Youth (SportIFY) Nepal.

My personal and professional passion for human rights, humanitarian policy, and peacebuilding stems from my background of growing up in Kathmandu and witnessing egregious human rights violations during Nepal's decade-long civil war.

Currently on an indefinite COVID-19 related Leave of Absence from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs—where I'm pursuing a Master of Public Administration—I'm professionally developing and establishing myself as a social and policy entrepreneur in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding spaces in Nepal and beyond.
