Transference Yak!

Namaste to all the friends and families!!

During our transference in Pokhara, we talked about going home – what it means, what to expect, how to make sense of this semester in Nepal. We want to send a Thank You to all families and friends for your support in making this semester a great success! The following is a collection of responses from all students, for what they need YOU to know!

As I leave Nepal, I want you to know that….

– Encountered an endless supply of dal-bhaat, stunning himalayan views and generosity.
– I’ve changed for the better.
– There are some experiences that I will never be able to put into words.
– I have changed.
– I have learned to cherish lucid moments.
– I’m a man.
– I’ve learned more about myself than I could have in a whole year back home.
– The world looks like a much larger place.
– I learned and changed a lot in Nepal.
– I love you and am excited to share my experiences and stories with you.
– I am the happiest I’ve ever been.

Once I am back home, I will keep on finding meaning by

– Embracing the unknown.
– Always being positive.
– Question everything around me.
– Not letting fear get in the way of jumping into new experiences.
– Seeing the beauty in everything, no matter how ugly or beautiful it may appear.
– Meditating and reflecting my thoughts through journaling.
– Not making judgement of things and people prematurely.
– Exploring my community and looking for the experiences/ lessons in places I thought I know.
– Using the mindset of traveler and explorer everywhere I go, even home.
– Trying to abandon preconceptions and just experience things for what they are.
– Walking through the world with a newly shaded lens.

Thank you!
