The years have passed and now I find myself here in Kathmandu University (KU) in front of the laptop trying to figure out why I love this place. It’s been 3 years and I still adore this place. Now, this might surprise most of you but I had no intentions to join KU in the 1st place.
I had more reasons not to join this university. First, it’s really far from Kathmandu 28 KM. That’s a big number. Second, the place is relatively in the remote area deprive of facilities. To get something, you need to go to Banepa. And there were other several reasons. But once here in KU, I realize KU is the best thing that has ever happened to my lifeJust few months back there were lots of questions in my mind. Studying Computer Engineering was really tough. My grades were not enchanting. Neither did I have great programming skills. I was frustrated as I saw my future ship sinking deep into the sea. I felt trapped as I had wasted my 4 years of my life in KU and I know nothing. I had no idea what will I do in future.
But now I realize, KU had taught me the way of life. I may not have been charming academically but KU taught me to live a better life. Every year I spent in KU, day by day KU made me a better person. The experience I got from the social circle taught me to me be confident and focused in whatever I do. The friends I have over here are hardworking, creative and most important work as a team.
Apart of all the differences, anyone is ready to help in the critical situations. No matter what, we celebrate each moment spent. Even in the bad times. This provides the positive energy among people. People really don’t care about their GPA here. But they care about being successful and that is what matters most in life. I may not be good programmer but I can lead a team to work together and finish the job.
KU has taught me to be a leader and I don’t quit without giving a fight. This is why I love this place. KU is only the place where you get to be a MAN from a teenager. Lastly, we KU students may not be the most intelligent people in the world but we are the smartest and confident people in the whole world.
