I have had opportunity to face the challenges which made me mature and responsible. The education and coaching classes I received has prepared me from a remote hill girl to a thinker and believer in myself. I would like to thank Valley Public family as well as my British God Grandparents who have given me new and promising future. <p> NAMASTE ! </p>

I have been living and running my own business in the USA for the past few years. My transition from Nepal to USA was made so easy mainly due to my education and upbringing in Valley Public. My language proficiency, my confidence in my own ability to do things was imparted in me by inspiring teachers to whom I owe my great respect. I have my respect and admiration for the service Valley Public is giving to the Nepali community. If any one of the Valley Public students are thinking of studying in the USA please feel free to contact me through Valley Public.

I spent some of my younger days in a village in the Western part of Nepal. My daily chores included waking up at 4 in the morning, looking after the domestic cattle, collecting fodder, having whatever we had available at home as my morning meal and going to local government school. I even had to work hard after school to support my mother and younger brother. I didn't go to bed until all the domestic work was done. By then it was late at night. When I look back, I had most difficult time in my tender age. For me, my luck changed for better while I was only 8 years of age when my British God parents, to whom I was introduced by a village Samaritan. My God parents decided to move me from remote hill village to Kathmandu. I was so excited to come to capital, for the first time and couldn't believe my luck as I was enrolled to Valley Public High school; one of the best schools in our country for my future education. I am the SEE student at present and enjoying every moment of it. All class room facilities including Modern Language Lab, Science Lab, IT Room, Music Room, General / E-Library are of international standards. Teachers and the entire school family have encouraged, inspired and motivated me to move forward to the sunlit path of personal development which will certainly be associated with professional, institutional and social development in race of my future. My English language efficiency and the insights in different subjects have improved a lot .So, I am confident in passing SEE with a high grade. I have learned different skills of practical life in Valley Public High School. When I grow up, I shall apply my academic knowledge and other skills learned in one of the best schools in Nepal to enhance my employability for future. I thank my British God parents for introducing me to Valley Public and school family for preparing me for my future. Long live Valley Public!
