My Swag:

Born and raised in a remote area in Far-West Nepal, despite all odds I decided to become a journalist. Besides journalism, I am interested in documentary film-making and social work. I have worked at major national and international media organizations and specializes in stories related to crime, human trafficking and violence against women and children. Currently, I am working as a news anchor and investigative reporter in Nepal’s AP1 Television. I have been recognized by the President of Nepal for my Historical Photo Exhibition, by the Nepal Women’s Journalist Association and most recently, my film “In Search of Devaki” won the Best Documentary award in the Nepal Panorama Section at the Kathmandu, Best Documentary Award awarded by Nepal Human Rights International Film Festival at the Kathmandu and Best short Documentary Award Awarded by at the Lithuwania.
