Manjari is from Gorkha district of Nepal. She joined EWN's trekking guide training in January 2020. At an early age her father passed away which made it very difficult for her family financially. Her sister gave up her dream of continuing school and began working with her mother at household and farm work. Later her mother got married to another man and had a son with the step father. Even though her mother married to another man, her mother was closed to her and her sister. Nepal severe earthquake 2015 killed her mother when her house collapsed. After that her step father did not care about them and the step brother even began to live with them.She had learnt to be strong, since she no longer had parents to protect her and her siblings
She joined grade 8 and her brother joined Kindergarten from the support of an organization. Her paternal uncle later died as well, and she became more hopeless and broken. She couldn't stop crying as she always thinks about her parents and that never really goes away though the sadness fades with time. Her sister and brother are all she had. She feels lucky and grateful to have them and relied on them for support. She and her brother depend on her sister who is looking the home. Now she wants to study hard and support her sister financially through trekking. On Female Trekking Guide Training, she thinks that she learnt so much. She is hopeful for her new life. She is happy and hopes to make decent income from trekking after the situation gets back to normal.
