Who is someone who inspires you?

Maggie Doyne, The CNN hero of 2015 inspires me. Her organization helped me to get my education up to grade 10 and it is still helping me on my path. I wish to help other children to get a quality education as she did.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The sound of nature, of chirping of birds and blowing wind. They give peace to my mind.

What Project would a laptop help you with?

I’m preparing for my SAT in 2020 through Khan academy, but I don’t have my own laptop. Because of this, I can’t study to my full potential daily. In addition, being a high school student without my own laptop limits what I can do in a day. 

What do you love about this project?

Learning new things, meeting new people and extending a hand to those who need a little extra help, just like it was done for me. Should I be chosen to receive a laptop I’d like to lend it out to peers for their studies to pay the kindness forward. 

What Languages do you speak?

Nepali

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
