Bimala lives in Dakshinkali, only 15 minute walk away from her school.

Bimala enjoys learning and has special interest in studying Nepali. She loves Nepali and aspires to teach Nepali at school. She believes it is important to learn another language, like English, but also equally important to make sure you know your mother tongue.
