After two successful years at Rose Foundation Nepal, I decided that it was time for me to pursue an MBA from Melbourne Business School. Co-founding and leading Rose has been an intensely rewarding personal experience. The joy and satisfaction that I derived from the work we did with Rose can’t be expressed in words, be it the support we received from thousands of participants in our cancer awareness campaigns or having a real impact with children battling cancer. The day Sabin was declared cancer free will always be the most cherished moment of my life.
I must say, I am in no means leaving the organization, but will spend this next phase acquiring knowledge and returning with more skills to achieve our big aspirations at Rose. I have always seen myself as an entrepreneur. This is probably the reason we have always focused on being self-sustainable as an organization. I believe my best strength is applying my business knowledge developing strategies to challenge the status quo.
One aspect that has made me pursue an MBA is the dedicated team we have at ROSE; volunteers, board members and the advisors. I am confident that the team will do an amazing job and will take the organization further ahead in the years I am away.
Cancer is still treated as a taboo in our society and we all need to come forward and speak more about it. As I embark this exciting journey, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me and Rose, and helping us touch many lives in an impactful way. I am very optimistic about our future and we will surely achieve great things together.
