Namaste! I am Pabitra Majhi. I belongs to Sarlahi District, Terai region of Nepal. Currently , I am doing my masters in Economics at Patan Multiple College, Lalitpur. I am associated with Nepal Youth Cluster as a Programme coordinator. I had a wonderful experience of working as a same post for UNC 2017 Boot camp, which was successfully conducted in Kathmandu Nepal. Nepal Youth Cluster (NYC) to me means empowering other youth while building myself. One of the profound impact on me is introspecting and encouraging myself to work harder for youth development. I am also associated with Impact Talks as a human resource manager and going to organize Impact talks season 3 in Kathmandu soon. 

I am a fun loving person, easy going and can make friends easily. I love to be part of various social work that’s why I m always ready if there is any chance of doing good work which gives positive impact in society. I, with some of my school friends, have formed a team named 'Let’s Do It' team and will organize second phase of Student Empowerment Programme in various government schools in Sarlahi. To do all these things, I always get inspiration and huge support from my family, especially from my father, who is my strongest pillar. He is a driver by profession and always supports girls' education, which he provided me educational supports as much as he can. That’s the reason I proudly can say that I am the first girl of my own village having higher education. So that It has become my indispensable responsibility to promote and work for girls' education. Now, I have been involved with Ujyalo foundation as one of the cohort of EmpowHER 2017 Programme. Through which, I am planning to run my dream project called “Junkiri-Empowering Women through basic literacy and awareness” program in my home town Sarlahi. 

When I was child, in my society giving education to their daughter was not considered as much as important because many of them have a misconception that girl is the property of her in- laws. But I am very lucky that my father never discriminated us from boys and always encouraged and supported me to continue my study. Since mychildhood days ,I am very much influenced by the various social work done by my father. I still remember those days when He has spent his all saving money for the education and development of Majhi community instead of using it for our future but instead established our Majhi Community Youth Club in Sarlahi, where he took me many times so that I can learn many things on site.

In 2016, I was selected to be participated in leadership outdoor programme. At the same time I met INNOCO team and got opportunity to join UNC 2016 bootcamp that was my turning point, which provided me a lifetime experience. It has also given me a new perception to look into society and explore myself.  Before that camp, my views and perceptions towards everything is completely different, now I have grown to be a more confident and responsible woman. Honestly, I don’t have any big dream but being an economic student, I want to be a good economist and serve in economic development of my nation. I do believe that small change can make huge difference if we can work collectively. I am a lifetime learner and always seek opportunity to learn either from senior or junior.
