This month we have Richa Neupane.  She is currently a Fellow at Teach For Nepal.  Teach For Nepal is a competitive 2 year teaching fellowship that puts recent college graduates in classrooms across the country. Richa currently teaches English at Indreshwori High Secondary School in Sindhupalchowk. She returned to Nepal after the 2015 earthquake in order to work directly with our people and country. In addition to being a teacher, she is part of Code For Nepal,  an organization aiming to increase digital literacy and use of big data. I admire Richa because she came back to Nepal to work even after having opportunities to work and stay in America.
