I am Grishma Paudyal, a Kaasthamandap A-level Academy Batch 2019 alumna. Kaasthamandap has been a remarkable experience for me, and it has aided my personal and professional development. KAA presented me with an atmosphere in which I could strive for excellence. Everyone I met via KAA has played an important role in helping me become vocal, competent, and informed, whether it was the professors, faculty, or my beloved friends. A-Level helped me understand education in a different manner than I would have otherwise, and the fantastic support from all of my KAA instructors provided me with many more lessons than what simply the books could. At the college, various events, programs, and activities were arranged, which helped me build my confidence and participate in regular extracurricular activities rather than focusing just on my academics.
With the shift in my character, where I liked getting out into the community, learning more about it, and striving to give others a better opportunity, I came to realize that I wanted to pursue development studies for my further education, so currently I'm a student of Development Studies at National College. I currently organize a variety of activities, events, and initiatives for the benefit of the community and its people, and I hope to become a successful social entrepreneur in the future. Having said that, I also started a small business, 'MaanaiDekhi Nepal’, to promote the usage of affordable handcrafted items and to encourage youths in small-scale businesses.
No matter where I reach in life, I will never forget my roots, and I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Kaasthamandap A levels for their unwavering support.
