THE JOURNEY OF HOW I FOUND MYSELF


Rewind my life back to 2 years, you’d probably find me wandering malls with my friends. Well! nothing to do but just gasping it after seeing the price tag of stuffs. As for me, I was so confused about my plans; what I am supposed to do next? I used to keep questioning myself that should I put myself in that crowd, who are looking for cheap IELTS preparation classes or do I have something else in mind which I have not discovered yet? At the same time, the time blessed me in disguise, which changed my life and now I can say proudly, ‘I Have Found Myself’.


Let me tell you what really happened!!

My mind with what next? I found United World School Nepal (UWSN) calling application for teaching fellowship. UWSN is a social organization working for the betterment of education quality in developing countries. With full of excitement, I applied for the fellowship and got selected. The UWSN gave me opportunity with challenges.  As it was the first time I was moving far away (700 km) from my home. My mom was worried for me regarding placement and management for a girl who even don’t know how to cook. Ignoring challenges with positivity, I started my journey with lots of hope and hundreds of questions. As if my mind was full of questions like what could this fellowship offer me? Would I be able to be on my own? What will happen if I fall sick out of a sudden? Will it be safe for me? A hundred of questions were flooding in my mind when I had to decide whether or not to accept the fellowship??

But now when I look back and see myself, my beautiful journey has created flowers from thorn. Now, I am proud of myself that I took a leap of faith. For nearly 2 years, I have been working in Shiva Basic School, Majhuwa (Sankhuwasabha) as a fellowship teacher. For 2 years, the school has been my home, my workplace and the people are like my family who cares and loves me as their child. These are my lifetime happy memories and new experience of some grim days. 

While I was involved primarily in teaching, I gave my concern to school and community where I initiated lots of programs, coordinating with teachers and students to bring positive change. From implementing hand washing drills to setting up the Routine of Teachers to clean the toilet, I have received the ample of appreciation and I am so thankful for that.

Bamboo fencing has been done around the school which has given a fresh environment to the school, also installing playing apparatus like swings, seesaws, monkey climbing in school has given smiles in kid’s faces and more chances to be involved in physical activities besides the teaching. Plantation has been carried out all around the school which will surely give the school a green and clean environment. Also, an awareness rally on the occasion of World Environment Day was conducted with an aim of making people aware about the importance of clean environment which certainly raised some eyebrows and made people aware not to litter their surroundings.

Also, we organized a flash mob on the occasion of International Women’s Day to raise awareness on Women’s Safety and Education.

Teachers-Parents meetings have been conducted periodically to improve school and student’s environment and also new measures and actions are being taken. Children are motivated to study hard and think about their future. Two of them have got a scholarship by ‘Pestolozzi‘(an organization) which grants them tuition fees, lodging and food in the reputed school of Dehradun, India. I can see the school is shaping in right way and feel like a proud mother who sees her son/daughter doing the best in their life.

Through my experience, what I learned is “Nothing is Impossible until and unless you try”. In many instances, there was not enough support from community but I never lost hope and always forced myself to go extra mile for the betterment of the school and community. Trust me, it feels really good and blesses you with a sense of satisfaction that makes you feel ‘You have done something good’. When I asked kids what they want to be in future? They reply, “I want to become like you.” It really warms your heart when you hear that. You feel proud when someone takes you as their role model.

After couple of months, this 2-year fellowship will end; I find myself often in tears when I see people so concerned for me. I often find people and parents asking me if they could do anything to extend my fellowship or make me stay longer. I am really blessed to get love and respect by the people and makes me feel that I might have done something good. I will be missing everything and everyone. The biggest gift I got are the memories that I will cherish forever and always be thankful for the opportunity. And now I finally could say to my mum. “Your daughter has finally learned to cook food”!

Working Teens: creating an impact

Are you a teen belonging to age group 13-19?  If your answer is yes, then I would like to put forward another question; what do you do, besides going to school? I’m pretty sure that only few will be able to answer this question.There are fewer teens who are guided by living with the purpose of greater good. Yes, this write-up is all about those teens who have succeeded to influence millions of lives because of their activities, regardless of their ages.

Whenever the subject of teens comes, the name- Sandeep Lamichhane tops the list because of his huge impact on cricketing history of Nepal. The top order leg spinner bowler of Nepal, Lamichhane was only 17 when he was selected in the famous Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 from Delhi Dare Devils. He is the first player in the history of Nepalese cricket who played IPL and shared the dressing room with the legend of world cricket like Gautam Gambhir, Trent Boult , Mohammed Shami, Glenn Maxwell, and so many other experienced players of world cricket community. His journey started from IPL and continued with his selection in Caribbean Premier League(CPL) and GT20 , Canadian cricket league. He is also a first Nepalese player to get selected in CPL of West Indies. Born in Syangja, a district far from the capital, he succeed to create an impact not only in the home cricket but also in the international cricket community .

There is another teen who proved herself as the Teen Child Right Activist. She is Bipana Sharma, who was just  17 when she  was felicitated as a Glocal Teen Hero 2015, leaving  hundreds of applicants behind  from the various nooks and corners of the Nepal who are working to create impact in the society. Nawalparasi born Sharma was only 11 when she joined Ekata Baal Club in her VDC. Later, she got elected as the chairman of VDC level child network. Inspired by seeing some of the children working in hotels, she has now proved herself as the strong child right activist, currently holding thousands of children under her child club network. She has proved herself as an impactful leader, thereby playing crucial role to involve the agendas of child right in the draft of newly written constitution. In one of the TEDx talks in Kathmandu, she said that she has a dream to be the first women Prime Minister of Nepal. She is now engaged  in various workshops ,trainings ,talks program about the children and many other activities. She has proved that age is just a number when you are highly willing to live a life with greater good .

Similarly , another 18 year old got viral in social media by throwing the waste and garbage in front of the gate of Singhadurbar, the main administrative building of Nepal government, to remind politicians that there has been excessive dirt in the city. He is KP Khanal, campaigner of Clean Kathmandu project. Clean Kathmandu Campaign is the initiation of nine teenagers under the leadership of KP Khanal with the aim of making the Kathmandu clean and change the perceived behaviors of people residing in Kathmandu towards the surrounding.  Meanwhile, the campaign wants to prove the famous quote “Be the change you wants the world to be”  to the people who behave recklessly and keep complaining about the problems. He was born in the middle class family of Achham district of far western Nepal and raised in  Kailali district. The main thing that inspires him for being a Social Activist is the Nepalese society that he saw through his family struggle. He managed to build the residential building for the orphanage children in the Bajura district with the collection of 4 million rupees from the people like him, who want to see the change in the society. A teen working for the motive of only self-satisfaction, can be the rising star of Nepalese society to inspire the people to live with the purpose of greater good .

In addition to these above mentioned energetic teens , there is another teen of aged 16, whose name and work when listened will surely bring goose-bumps. He is Mr. Sujan Acharya who has set the record of Youngest Television program host. He was only 11 when he hosted TV shows named “Nepal Darshan” and “Mission News” at ABC Television. He dreams of breaking the record of longest-ever television talk show , which is now hold by the celebrated TV journalist Ravi Lamichhane. He has set an example for the teenagers of Nepal that age is just a number when you are strongly driven by your passion.

Thus, Sandeep Lamichhane, Bipana Sharma, KP Khanal, and Sujan Acharya are the perfect example to prove age is just a number, their work is all what gives them their unique identity. Apart from these teenagers, there are so many teenagers in our society who are doing good for others. These extra-ordinary teens has set a perfect example and inspiration to the other teens . The descriptions of aforementioned teenagers clearly prove us that no any age barriers are existed in the real sense if you have strong faith in your works. The works done by them in their age is beyond extraordinary. With my confidence at it peak, I can proudly say that age is just a number . Age is not the factor that will decide what to do and how to do.The main thing you need is passion and strong determination to see the decent society.

Glocal Teen Hero: A step closer towards Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs are footpaths which are supposed to act as guidelines for a better tomorrow. With almost half the population capable to make a difference(being under 30), it is crucial for these youths to be actively involved in formulating these goals so that we, as the most ‘intelligent’ species, are using our best resource to give back.

Teenagers are people who fall in the age range of 13-19. During this time, creativity is at its peak, ideas are rampant. So we must make sure our creativity and thinking power are utilized in a good way, so that we are supporting good causes and meaningful actions. We must inspire communities who haven’t got the knowledge to break prejudices and end injustice. For something to actually happen, a group of people need to provide collective effort so that they can bring about the necessary changes they want. So teens must be able to form a team of like minded people and come  with projects which have a positive and a productive impact on society. In short, we must be able to be a critical part of carrying out actions, observing and reviewing the progress of SDGs.

One of the  platforms that supports the SDGs Agenda  is Glocal Teen Hero (GTH). It is run exclusively by youth for teenagers who are brimming with potential, who have the ideas which can change the world. It has been initiated by Glocal-Khabar, which is an online portal to cover news about youth, education and entrepreneurship. Glocal Teen Hero is an award night dedicated to commemorate the various innovative teenagers who have ideas that impact the society in a positive way. This program encourages teens to step out of their shell and be creative while taking care of the sustainability of their idea which promotes the idea of SDGs. All the while, GTH helps their sustainable principle friendly projects to network with some of the most influential delegates from various industries all over the country. So, the teenagers participating in GTH have the opportunity to have their ideas get amplified on a nationwide scale which might resonate within other people and inspire them to start practicing SDGs by their own on a small scale, which creates a ripple effect and one individual can influence a ton of other individuals to practice SDGs.

To summarise, teens might be the ones making all the big changes and  if the teens behind are constantly encouraged and pushed to their limit so they make full use of their capabilities for everyone to be living in a better place. And with platforms like Glocal Teen Hero and Glocal International Teen Conference, we are slowly inching towards our objective of achieving SDGs for a better Nepal.

December 16: Day of Teen Revolution

Every year, December 16 marks the Day of Teen Revolution in the world believing in the power of teenagers to create a revolution. This year, teenagers from Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, India, and Australia celebrated the day with small efforts towards social change.

 

In Nepal, Teens who have been striving from a long time to create change in the society organized small program within their locality to motivate teenagers to create change and also to make society realize in Teen power to make a change.

Different motivational sessions were conducted to motivate teens in these places approaching their skills enhancement to accommodate changes in their life through life skill education and to make them the responsible citizen of the country.

This year, Day of Teen Revolution in Nepal is marked from Pokhara, Nawalparasi, Sarlahi, and Kathmandu.

The activities were:
1) At Pokhara university, girls marked this day with the session on Teen Girl’s Empowerment and also focusing on menstrual taboos and reproductive health problems. These teen girls are really proud to be girl rather than setting themselves back in the society.

2) At Nawalparasi, Session was conducted on “Teen for Peace and Development” among 25 teenagers. The program highlighted the teen issues and made an individual pathway to face them and find the solutions from an individual level.

3) Ruby Moktan, one of Glocal’s 20 under 20 marked Day of Teen Revolution with her classmates sharing their journey and discussing teen problems and journey of Glocal’s 20 under 20 and inspiring them to utilize their skills in productive works and to create positive change in themselves and also in the society.

4) At Shree Beni Bhola Technical School, Godaita, Sarlahi, an interactive program with 10 different Speakers took place. The different topics like Importance of Science and Technology, Role of Teen in Social Change, Public Speaking Techniques, Women’s Empowerment, Living a life we deserve among others were discussed amidst 50 teenagers

The Theme of Science and Technology

It is the topic that encompasses science, technology and the interaction between the two. It is the systematic enterprise that builds and organizes the knowledge in the form of explanations about everything and predictions about nature and the universe. Technology is the collection of techniques, methods and ideas that can be used in the production of goods which are now being used to decorate the whole world. If we look around in the human history, science plays a huge role because of which 21st century appears to be so vast and full of scientific inventions.

Long ago, it was impossible for any person to talk to people who were miles away from them. A man named Graham Bell changed that reality with his illusion by building a communication machine named Telephone. Just because of Science and engineering skills, now we can travel around the world within hours and we can communicate with the person in the other side of the world. There is a high scope of science and technology. Many things have already been discovered and many are yet to be discovered. If we look around the present world, we can find many inventions created by science and technology and because of that, our daily life has become much more efficient.

Aspiring people to take up science and technology can inspire a lot of people towards tech field and generate new ideas that can be used to change the lifestyle of the whole world. To change the world via our vision in science and technology, first we have to think differently. We all have worn the different goggles of illusion. Everyone tend to elaborate the things and situation according to their goggles of illusion. This gives a wide range of perspectives. Thus, to decorate the world with brand new ideas, those illusionary goggles are to be worn and believe that everything is possible.

Many people changed their goggles to decorate world like Alessandro Volta built the first battery. Wright brothers are the legends of the machines that can fly miles away like the birds. They build the first Aeroplane. By the Illusion of Thomas Addison, the invention of light bulb was possible which faded the darkness away during the night as well.

Thus, we should aspire to make the lives better with the use of Science and Technology.
