Obtaining the master's degree has substantially boosted my confidence and credibility as an educator.  



I am currently a teacher of English Literature and Theory of Knowledge in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Ullens School in Kathmandu, Nepal. I am also an Academic Counselor at Ullens School, working with graduating seniors to apply to universities abroad. Since I finished the C&I program, I completed the Intensive Nepali Language program at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and spent a month as an international scholar at Aarhus University, Danish School of Education in Copenhagen, Denmark.  



Get to know your professors! They are a wealth of knowledge and can guide you into new opportunities for personal and professional growth.  



Conducting research in Nepal for my master's thesis was the most memorable part of being a graduate student. I could never have predicted that this experience would change and shape my life so dramatically.
