His dream is to see youth of Nepal participating & bagging medals at Olympics in future.
The mark which he has achieved today is because of his hard work and passion towards sports in guidance by his teachers and mentors who helped him throughout his journey.
He says, Mr. Uday Aryal (BWF certified International Line Judge) helped him with his umpiring skills and also crediting Sir for giving me exposure to face the crowd in the Badminton Fraternity across Nepal & Asia. His also added, Mr. Deepak Thapa (Rio Olympics – Badminton Line Judge) has also held him in this journey.
Both the mentors have help him to boost up his confidence on and off court. Currently he is following the trend of “Stay Home, Stay Safe” caused by COVID-19 in which all the Umpires and Players of Nepal Badminton Association are helping him by sharing Videos of drills and challenges which is helping us create awareness among people.
Through this trend the foundation came into view and all players and umpires are coming together to support him in this Initiative.
