I am a dual business and public policy student invested in creating a more equitable economy through local business development. I became committed to this goal after my family and I immigrated to the United States from Kathmandu, Nepal, and we started a small business which generated economic growth in our community. Through this experience, I realized that even a small business can leave a big positive impact.
Previously, I was a Policy and Advocacy Manager in Washington D.C. where I helped shape and pass national economic relief legislations. In my personal time, I also helped small business owners apply for and receive PPP loan forgiveness which catalyzed my desire to hands on solve business challenges facing firms of all sizes. Through my MPP program, I have been able to deepen the technical skills necessary to evaluate the business costs of economic regulations and am excited to sharpen my business acumen and leadership skills through the MBA.
In my free time, I love to learn new languages, weight lift, and cook elaborate meals!
