Some fifty-seven years ago, two men dared to accomplish an impossible task, which no human had ever done before. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary sought to conquer the highest mountain of the world, Mount Everest. The bravery and courage of these men made the highest peak look small in front of them. Determination, so strong that even death lost its icy grip over life. Bravery, so huge that fear itself fears to wander around. Similarly, some fifty years ago a country achieved an impossible feat. The United States of America successfully landed the first humans on the surface of the moon on July 16, 1969. The willpower of a nation made the journey look so simple and easy. As a proud Nepali residing in this great nation of the United States, I really believe we can contribute more to the society.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Nepalese Society, Texas for allowing me to serve as your President 2020-22. I am also blessed with one of the best Executive Team on my side. It is an honor and a privilege to have the trust and confidence of the members of our esteemed organization. From the last twenty two years Nepalese Society, Texas has played a growingly important role in refining and shaping our community. NST has been a glue to all the other organizations and has functioned as an umbrella organization in the region.
NST would not have been what it is today if not for the great efforts put by the Past Presidents and the past executive members. The dedication of our volunteers has played a key role in growing NST to this level. In addition, our sponsors whose financial and programming support are vital to our success.
With the support of our community NST is confident to promote the social causes like education, health, human rights, women empowerment, personal development and many more.
With the ongoing momentum in our community we have many good reasons to get together for closer and broader collaborations.
We, all of us as the Executive Team truly appreciate your support and the opportunity to serve you. From all of us we wish you and your family a prosperous year ahead.
