About This Author

My experience of life took me from a council flat to a top corporate position for a leading global finance company in London. More than 11 years ago I changed my life by setting up a charity to support children and families in the poorest regions of Nepal. During my life I have lived through many experiences, including surviving the devastating Earthquake in Nepal in April 2015.
