The Nepali American Journey

When you hear the word “Nepal,” what do you think of? Perhaps you imagine Mount Everest and the towering peaks of the Himalayas that so many hikers try to brave each year. Or perhaps you think of the Buddha, as he was born in Lumbini. Regardless of what comes to mind, you probably think of a country that’s far away, on a different continent, across the entire Atlantic or Pacific Ocean, depending on what side of the country you’re on.
