IC3 is excited to highlight Priya Rajbhandary next for the #StudentExcellence project! Priya is in her first year of the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Program (DP) and comes to us from Ullens School in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Ullens School is a non-profit school situated in Khumaltar, Lalitpur, Nepal. Established in 2006, it offers classes from kindergarten to grade 10 and is the only educational institution in Nepal that offers the IBDP.
The IC3 Regional Forum was hosted at Ullens School on 26 January 2019 and Priya was nominated by their head academic counselor! Enjoy reading and watching Priya’s video so you can get to know her and what her plans are for the future.
IC3: What are some current projects (and clubs) you’re working on in school?
Priya: I am a part of Kura Kaani, a talk show organized by the students of Ullens School where speakers are invited to share their stories and experiences. I am also a part of the Journalism Club. Additionally, a group of friends and I founded a club to archive memories and report activities around school.
IC3: What do you like to do in your free time away from school?
Priya: I’m usually painting and reading during my free time, and I like spending time with my friends and family as well.
IC3: What are you interested in studying once you finish high school?
Priya: I do have a diverse set of interests from reading to writing, and I would probably want to delve into Journalism, Political Science, as well as Gender Studies. But, I do want to keep my options open and I feel like going to a liberal arts college in the U.S. will allow me to do so.
