Susmita Adhikiri

Susmita's high school graduation class chooses the traditional Nepali sari over a cap and gown.

2016: Susmita represents one of the many benefits of answering questions on I get to meet new people! It's young people like she [yes, that's grammatically correct] who keep me so youthful that she couldn't believe that I'm really old enough to be her grandmother.

Susmita will be leaving her home in Pokhara, Nepal, to begin college at the University of Richmond. I get to teach her about the Capital of the Confederacy and North Face backpacks, and she teaches me about the culture and education system in Nepal.

She has family in Maryland, so she won't be on her own, but I can't wait to meet her when she arrives in August, 2017!

2017 Update: We're having a great time! We got the best courses, the best contacts, and the best restaurants! I'll head home Sunday feeling both successful and well-fed.

2018: Susmita has become the latest in a line of summer companions; she's working here, because the exchange rate is so much better than in Nepal, and I get a helper around the house, and the mind of a college student to tell me what my web page should look like :-)
