That feeling of immersing in the essence of helping others. Quite often people ask me, "why do you dedicate your life to helping others?" The truth is, I know how it is to struggle, I know how it is to feel worthless. I am a first generation Australian who was subjective to severe racism and bullying, just because my parents were born overseas. I was called a "waste of space" and a "waste of air". I was made to feel worthless. But, deep in my heart and soul, I knew there was something better waiting for me in the future, I just had to hold on. Now, it is my life mission and drive to help others never feel the way I have felt; my life mission is to empower as many people around the globe as I possibly can.

“It was a wonderful experience dancing with the kids. We had a competition and shared with each other- The potential of the kids was unbelievable. Mr Ravi was very helpful. So was Ms Sangita. Everybody was very cooperative and very welcoming. [I will continue] volunteering and [providing] regular dance classes- [the students] are very talented and the right kind of exposure can go a long way- I think it’s a great initiative and I will try raising funds back in India as well.” (Meher Malik, India, 2017). #thehelpnepalappeal #charity #nepal #travel #youth #culture #positive #global #beauty #dance #india #bollywood #experience #family #makeadifference #life #goodcause #changemaker #live #children #school #teacher #give #bethechange #hope #love #education #construction #empowerment #change

Like our Change Makers @frankiebil and @zoeejones11, take a walk through a part of Nepal's history at the Royal Palace. Narayanhiti Palace, in the city of Kathmandu, served as the residence of past monarchs in Nepal and housed the incident of the Royal Massacre. In 2001, Prince Dipendra murdered numerous members of his family after finishing an evening meal. The horrific event still has left it's mark in the wall of the royal garden, where bullet holes can be found. Top Tip: Learn more of the history before walking through the royal rooms, to give them more context and to enrich your experience.
