Our Pride, Our Ex-student
He is known to be the guy with life full of smiles till the time when he graduated from KEHS in 1994. His alluring laughter and smiles has been an icon among his friends and teachers; and it has remained to this day.
Meet Dawa Sherpa, whose hardworking parents hailed from the town of Dolakha, joined Kantipur School in 1987. He was an occasional hosteler and also an awardee of ‘The Best Student of the Year,’ who believes that it was also one of the happiest moments in his life.
Now, a successful industrialist, his products i.e. Nepalese hand-knotted carpets; has reached far & wide around the globe. He is also an accomplished intellectual in the fields of International Business Management, Sociology and Anthropology and notably a generous philanthropist and an excellent community leader.
This diligent and optimistic person, has spread his wings through his entrepreneurship and compassion, based on his guiding principles of life. He says, “Life is a balance of work, life, service, illumination and freedom. Muscles can be grown, so can be our brain; so we need to work hard and keep exercising and practicing with diligence, patience and passion.”
Currently, he is also serving the board of Nepal Carpet Exporters’ Association as the Secretary. Amongst his crowning glory, he is also the Treasurer of Nepal Goodweave Foundation , an organization working to end illegal child labor in carpet industry and promote adult artisans. Additionally, he is the First Vice- President of Himali Sherpa Samaj and the General Secretary of Himalayan Children Education Fund, helping to nurture Sherpa culture and tradition and also helping educate underprivileged children from all communities.
Despite his busy schedule, he is a man consumed by wonderlust. His well- travelled itineraries expand to almost all the seven continents.
However, his vivid memories of school days makes him emotional as he misses playing football in hostel and also when he used to play in Sankha Park. Furthermore, Dawa acknowledges that all the extra curricular activities that he joined in Kantipur have helped him groom himself as a responsible citizen and a good human being.
Moreover, apart from his smooth career, Dawa feels that we need to pay back to the society, and as a born Buddhist, he is learning to practice compassion (KARUNA) in life.
As he says, “There is no way to happiness, Happiness is the way.”
