I am an undergraduate student pursuing Computer Science and Business Administration at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. During my time at W&L, I have worked as a Summer Research Scholar and as a STEM IT assistant as part of my work-study program. I am very hard-working, dedicated, focused, intelligent, and driven. I secured a full-ride scholarship to attend W&L.

I attended the last two years of high school at Pearson College UWC in British Columbia, Canada with a full-ride scholarship. I shared my two years with international students from around the world, broadening my academic knowledge and understanding of different cultures and practices. During my time at Pearson, I led a Computer Science club, worked as an IT assistant, worked as a Summer Camp leader, rode 450 km on a Bike in a week across Kootenay Pass, and organized Asia-pacific and South Asia regional programs to represent the culture from Nepal.

I am always looking for opportunities to learn, grow, and work with people who are passionate about what they are doing.
