Assistant professor of organic chemistry at Mid-West University

“I had a desire to be known as a famous scientist, but for women, not everything they want is possible; household management also hinders them, and in some cases, the economic situation also does not allow them to move forward. In some cases, society does not easily accept the fact that female teachers teach science, and it is sad. I feel very proud to teach science, especially chemistry, to students from the remote districts of western Nepal.”
