Meet our students: Ramesh Acharya

My name is Ramesh, I am 17 years old, I live in Haripow (Kaski district). It is 15 km from Pokhara.

2013 08 13 11 46 23 59

I am a very poor man, my family are just farmers and, they don’t have a lot of money. I have 1 brother. He is 19 years old. He studied for class 10 and now he works in Malaysia, marketing. I have 4 sisters, they are all married. One sister studied for class 8. I am the first one in my family to study for class 11. My family is very happy I receive the fellowship.

My hobby is journalism subject. I read newspapers, write news. I like that. In the future, I want to be a good journalist for Nepal. I started a program in my village and my school for writing. I like reading Nepali literature.

I want to learn English and journalism. Because I come from government school, and in government school we don’t practice we only pass exams. So I am not perfect. All countries use English, electronic use English language, so that is very important to learn.

I want to learn newspaper writing. I want to write news for all people so houseworkers can easily read the news. News are very important because Nepali political conditions are very bad. The conditions are very bad because every 3 months they change the Prime Minister. And there is corruption. When journalists write news, they watch the behavior of the Prime Minister and they change the political conditions.

This is a shortened version of an interview conducted by Noam Keim on August 24th.
