Khagendra Chhetry: My Story of 'how I became the First Nepali Attorney in the U.S.' (Podcast Ep. 41)

By Anuz Thapa & Dipika Shrestha

In this episode, we talk to Khagendra Chhetry, the first Nepalese-American Attorney. In this brief conversation, he walks us through his ‘very interesting story’ of ‘being the first Nepali to become an attorney in the U.S.’ One truly inspiring thing he says is, in 1983, he came all the way to the U.S. from Nepal, to knock the door of Columbia University - despite being unable to afford its expensive tuition fee.  He says, “I went (to Columbia University) and knocked on their door, it so happened, that they responded. If you want to be successful in the U.S., it’s not going to work otherwise; this is the only way, ‘you go and knock’. ” Mr. Chhetry can be contacted at kc@chhetrylaw.com  If you love this podcast, you can support us with a small, monthly donation.
