Namaste (meaning : “My spirit honors yours” ) everyone,
I take a great pleasure in writing this note to everyone as the date of your arrival is right around the corner .While I am writing this , monsoon is slowly losing its effect in Kathmandu , ready to embrace fall .Currently , I am getting myself busy with pre-course preparation along with the I team and I assume you guys are getting ready too with your backpacks , thinking on your upcoming travels. My name is Tsheten Sherpa , and I have been working with Dragons for four years as an in country assistant. As it has already been said , we admire all you people for taking the initiative to travel Nepal and taking the challenge to experience its unfamiliar culture , people and landscape .
I come from a traditional Sherpa family in a rural village of Solukhumbu in Everest region . However I was raised in Kathmandu since the early age when my family moved into the capital city. At an early age, I experienced two years of being a monk and later was enrolled in regular school .Since then ,I have completed my schooling and currently studying Development studies in Kathmandu University for my undergraduate degree.
My journey with the Dragons began when my family moved into this beautiful house which is now Kathmandu program house Him A. Me and my parents take care of the program house throughout the year . It has been home to us for many years and we have hosted numerous student groups . Growing up alongside Dragons community, I have met a lot of young energetic students whom I have inspired and taken a lot of inspiration from. And I must say that all these year of facilitating groups have provided me with some of the most resonating experience full of adventure , friendship and self discovery.
I am so excited to meet you guys and eagerly waiting for another adventure .
Dhanyabaad ( Thank you)
