2nd Vice Governor's message:
Uniting for Service
I’m a dedicated Lion with a Passion for Service. I’m a native of Sunsari, Nepal and a true embodiment of the Lions' commitment to service. With a remarkable journey spanning several years, I’ve held various roles within the Lions organization, leaving an indelible impact along the way. In 2006, I joined the Berkeley Annapurna Lions Club as a Charter Member and Joint Secretary, marking the beginning of an illustrious Lions career. As a devoted leader, I served as the Club President for the 2012-2013 term and took on additional responsibilities as Club Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Chairperson and Service Chairperson on numerous occasions.
My dedication extends beyond the club's boundaries. I was pivotal as the Coordinator of the Student Speaker Contest, Blood Drive Program and fundraising events at the club level. Moreover, I took charge as the coordinator of the Medical Mission for Nepal, displaying my commitment to global service. My influence expanded as I became the Guiding Lion of Berkeley Makalu and assumed the role of Specialty Club Coordinator for Lions Club International.
Throughout my journey, I’ve received accolades for my outstanding contributions. I earned the MD4 Excellent Pin and received the International President's Certificate of Appreciation four times, recognizing me exceptional commitment to Lionism. In addition to my Lions involvement, I remain engaged in the Nepalese community, serving as an Advisor of the California Chapter of NWGN (Nepalese Women Global Network) and Treasurer of Nepal Endogenous Federation Society California USA.
Beyond my professional and Lions endeavors, I find joy in my personal life. Married to my husband Khil for 39 years, we reside in El Sobrante, California, along with our three sons, Utsav, Ujwal, and Prajwal, their three daughters-in-law, Pasang, Riza, and Neha, and their three grandchildren, Norah, Norden, and Cyra.
